Nan sent us the most amazing present. They arrived on Saturday - perfect timing. Jenny and I wished *so* much she could have been with us for the weekend, but she was definitely there in spirit.

love you nan!!

i want to frame this picture from friday (see guest blog post #1). maybe not quite halfway through life just yet, but now we've known each other for more than half our lives already! and i love i can't count how many laughs we've shared, or how many tears, or measure how big my heart has grown to embrace the world because of our friendship and the many others in our posse. maybe it will be the size of the moon before too long...

love you!!! xoxoxo --sunnywave

i am guest blogging on _more adventurous_ this amazing picture that heathy took of us. this has been the best visit ever--a lot of rest and relaxation and soaking up the great vibes of friendship forged over upteen years and years and years. i asked heath if i could post these pictures, so that eighteen years from now we can think: oh, we were so young then, so full of laughter, having such a great time.

portland in the spring is beautiful as seen here, but it makes me giggle to think how many more springs will go by and we will still be walking underneath the vibrant sky, maybe humming some cheesy 80's ballad, and cracking ourselves up that we used the word 'bogue'.

Last Thursday, I finished my 365. On Wednesday, I received an amazing and thoughtful gift. My friend Cora created a book of all my 365 photos with dedications from my friends and family.

I am incredibly lucky to have such a truly supportive group of friends and family. Only one of them is a flickrite and the rest were extremely tolerant and truly embraced the project with me - with only the occasional eye roll as I ran off to take a picture of myself at social gatherings, family outings, at work, on date nights, etc.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being such wonderful friends. I can't express how much this gift and your love means to me.

Here are the dedications in the front of the book from this fabulous group of friends and my awesome mom and dad.

-To Heathre: my inspiration, partner, encourager and sister..Thank You! Nan
-Loved watching you develop your artistry. Love, Mom and Dad
-My world looks so much better through your lens. Love, Bruce
-I love the world captured through your eyes. Congratuations! Love!! - Jenny
-My dear photographer to the starts: you are one! Sarah
-Our dear photographer heather: what a wonderful job you have done! we're proud of you! - maralea and sid
