Unexpected Delight!

I was lucky enough to see some of my favorite people on earth over the holidays…some old high school pals. Nowadays, we are spread out from N.Y.C. to S. Carolina to L.A., but all crossed paths for barely 24 hours in Akron and managed some play time. We met at a park that we used to hang out at in high school. This time, however, we supervised our kids as they played. I guess we finally grew up, although I’m not sure exactly when this happened.

I grabbed a few shots of the beautiful children:

The Fearless Abrianna.

The Charming Isaiah.

The Adorable Olivia (with her handsome father).

My little guy couldn’t get over all the big kids!

And the old pals, I miss them so!

Christina (a.k.a. Nuns) and Annie O.

Jen (a.k.a. Nel) and Nuns.

What an unexpected delight to see all of you! Let’s do this again soon. Much Love, Jo

I have lots in store for this blog as well as my buisness over the next few months, so stay tuned!

    These pictures are enchanting, Jo. Our world looks so dreamy and perfect in black and white. I should have you following me around taking b&w photos all the time! Goods rule!
