we could have been rockstars.

Untitled-1
When I was in high school, I had a secret dream that involved me singing with Lashelle at the local Earth Day festival. (Remember “Earthfest”? Yeah, it was pretty amazing.) If you’ve never heard me sing, consider yourself lucky. I can kind of hold a tune (sometimes) but I’m pretty sure that any attempt to sing in public would have ended in me feeling completely and utterly embarrassed. Even so, I had this dream. And when we were in college, I confessed the dream to Lashelle, only to find out that she had the same dream! Seriously. The same one.

So, I clearly did not make it as a singer, but I love that Lashelle and I are both pursuing a more tangible dream (for us, anyway). She is still one of my dearest friends and is currently a photographer in Durham, NC. (If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you’ve seen her sweet family already!) Last weekend, we went down to visit her family, and here are a few quick photos that I grabbed of Lashelle, John, and Hayston on our trip to the Duke Gardens. (Just FYI: Trying to take a family photo with three kids in tow was not a brilliant idea… Caleb, Maggie, and Hayston had a simultaneous meltdown!)

And this is a sneak peek of the fun afternoon that Hayston and Maggie spent playing in the yard. Check out Lashelle’s blog for more of those pics!
