As you view these images, I am off to see my parents for some Mother’s Day / Father’s Day celebrating.


Following that, I’ll participate in a Saturday Board Meeting for the Virginia Council of Nurse Practitioners.


Then I’ll get to spend the evening with a long time friend and fellow photographer.


And hopefully, all of that work and play will be followed by a belated birthday celebration with my sister.


These images were taken during an evening with friends last week.  Life, and all it’s gifts and challenges, has prevented this group of women from gathering lately.  On Friday, we finally got to sit around the fire, enjoy delicious food and drink, and the company of folks who know you well and love you despite your, shall we call them, less attractive, traits.

Enjoy the weekend, everyone!  I’ll catch up with you when I get back.

  1. So beautiful Laurie. Like you, I am spending the weekend with a group of girls who have been getting together for 25 years. How wonderful it is to chill with these gals! Enjoy!

    • It was so good to see my parents, sister, friends, and for the meeting to be productive and not a waste of time 🙂
      Hope to catch up with everyone this coming weekend.

    • Thanks, Jim!
      Hope to catch up with your blog this coming weekend. Tomorrow is the Ride of Silence, the 9th Annual in my part of the world. Fingers crossed: no rain!

  2. What gorgeous pics, Laurie. I’m in love with those flowers and feel like I could reach out and touch one.

    I’m so happy to read that you’ll be spending time with your folks, followed by other good friends. I know you’ll savor each moment as you always do. xo

    • The time with my folks was wonderful and precious. I’m so fortunate to have them, still.
      Visits with friends, my sister, and a productive meeting rounded out the weekend.
      I need to look back to remember when our last skype session was.
      I’d love to find time to catch up!

  3. Those photos are perfect for capturing the sense of calm and relaxation of your time with friends. I especially like the one with the drink and the campfire–that image occurs around here, too!

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
