a good friend





yesterday k and i headed into the city. we ate falafel's, hummus, got a mocha, stopped at ben & jerrys for k's. favourite ice cream and cuddled bellow the avon cinema sign waiting to see "babies". my friend sheila pregnant seven days past her due date surprised us along with her husband roger by excepting our invitation to the movies! can i just tell you how wonderful & kind she is not to mention how radiant she looks. i am really at awe and how lovely she has carried her first baby and now as she waits for her little boy who seems to want to linger in her belly just a little longer i am reminded how lucky it is for me to be able to call such a wonderful person a dear friend. i could not help but wonder what a mum and dad to be was thinking and feeling when watching " Babies" such a wonderful documentary following the lives of four babies from different corners of the world.

p.s. little guy you will love it in the embrace of your mom and dad so whenever you are ready i know they will be.

It sounds like a perfect day. How exciting about your friends' baby!

By the city, do you mean Providence? I ask because of the Avon. My husband and I used to live on the east side. We were just back there last week, visiting our old haunts and trying a few new ones.

I remember these photos from last spring. I loved their mood then, and love it even more now. Beautiful work!

Best,
Gigi

Sweet Nadia, everything is lovelier through your eyes; that is what makes your photos so special, and that is why people are drawn to you. You see the best in us, not in a way that ignores the uglier parts, but in a way that encompasses everything. You are very special to me. Thank you for everything.
