the best of friends...

"The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart..."


That's exactly how we feel about our friends Nikki and Elary. They visited this week all the way from Las Vegas.  Of course - it's not that big a deal for them, considering they used to live here. But we still love to see them come! It had been waaaaay to long since the last time we saw them. Almost a year to be exact. 


It's always an amazing thing to me when you make really true friends who, no matter how much time has passed, still "get" you.  With these two, it was like we just picked up right where we left off.   We laughed ourselves silly over the stupidest things (like flatulence) and had some of the most serious conversations we've had all year - all in the matter of just a few days. And that is why we love them. Because it doesn't matter how god-awful or wonderful the conversation is, we're just so happy to be having it with them!


We took some time out to take a few updated photos for them. And when I say a few - I literally mean a few! Ha! We spent so much time laughing, we barely took any pictures! Oh well - a few will do! :) Well here's my favorite from the beginning of editing for you all to enjoy! :)




"...the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest, as well as one's most foolish, thoughts come out simply and safely.  Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."   ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859

on the home front...

So things here in the Reid house are crazy these days...hence the no posting...

1. Our computer died. So if you're expecting albums or digital images, it will be next week before we can start getting them ordered. AGAIN. I know I know, its upseting.

2. Daryl's working nights. Boo.

3. We are getting an iMAC!! Ahh! So exciting - we will be posting pictures as soon as it arrives!

4. Our poor Scout is getting herself shaved this weekend. Like SHAVED - in a "I won't spread hair ALL OVER my momma's house anymore" kinda shaved.

5. Daryl had a car accident. The lady who pulled out in front of him, her car, was smashed to pieces, but Ole' Bessie - she's like a rock. D says that we can't keep her running for anything, but we could run into a brick wall and bounce off. (Two weeks ago, we replaced the radiator, and last week, we had a flat tire, and THIS week...wreck. Sad really!)

6. I am finally starting to get the hang of working from home. With D working at night, I'm able to work on my photography editing at night rather than avoiding it during the day. It's alot harder than I thought to work at home! But just about the time I'll get the hang of it, it will be time to get a second job! Oh man...

7. We are hoping that maybe a small contest is in order in the next week or so, so we will keep all posted about that!

Until then, enjoy this horrible picture that I just love. It's alot of face though, so be prepared.
