I love thinking back to 2005 when Geoff first moved here from Savannah, Georgia. He was just out of school and got his first job at a design studio here in Charlotte doing motion graphics. He only knew one person…a friend from college that also moved to Charlotte at the same time and knew no one. After we got engaged 9 months later, I moved to Charlotte as well…also friendless.
I look at our life now and the people that God has brought into it through the past 10 years…and I’m pretty much floored at the friendships we have had. Not just surface level, smile politely friendships, but honest to goodness know-the-depths-of-our-hearts-and-they-still-love-us friendships. That is special. That is a gift. Such a gift.
One of the greatest blessings that has come from this business is the friends that I have made in fellow photographers. Again, not just get together to “talk shop” photographer friends, but photographer friends that we get to do life with regularly and that I love dearly. The second week of February, I got to take a couple days away in Asheville, North Carolina for a girls trip with some of those photographer friends. We rented a “treehouse” through Airbnb and hit the road. We laughed and cried and ate doughnuts at Hole and drank tea and danced and talked business and rode a backyard zipline. And we took pictures….just for fun.
Goodness gracious, I am thankful.
