This past week was pretty awesome.

First off, my friend Elin was in town from Sweden. I met her when I was in Melbourne studying abroad and I haven’t seen her in over 2 years (she has since moved back to her hometown of Sweden). I’ve always been in love with her photography and seeing her shoot photos in my own hometown was exciting. Plus, seeing her reminds me of my time in Melbourne which I’ve been dying to relive. :)

The very same week, my buddy John Carroll who I’ve been following from Memphis, TN, also dropped in with his wife and his friend Jonny (and his wife). We had some great conversation over coffee and I’m always encouraged to hear about John’s adventures in adoption and the good things he’s doing with John over in Tennessee.

Out of towners always bring me a sense of joy. John and Elin, please visit again! :)
