My friend, Gillian, and I have known each other since middle school. We used to live on the same street and would bike to each others houses after school. So many fun memories from high school making silly videos late at night (wow, blast from the finding that video – I remember Nylon posting it on their blog & Myspace and we freaked!).
Now were both “adulting” and try to still get together often. A couple weeks ago Gill headed out to my neck of the woods for an afternoon hang. We went to the beach, she got a crappy iced tea, we through rocks in the water with Poppy, and then we went home and she helped me get my halloween costume together (felt like grade 11 all over again when we went as Slash & Axel Rose). While at the beach she snapped some photos and they are some of my favourites of me and Poppy. We spend so much time together in this spot, they will also be a precious keepsake of these memories to me.
I gave Poppy a disposable “AMRA!” she looovvveesss it. Needs to bring it everywhere we go. Asks me all the time to go and get it to take a photo of her moping the floors, holding her doll, sitting in a frying pan… “Chhheeeesseeee!” There are going to be so many blurry photos of her feet and her thumb when I develop this roll.
