I haven't blogged in awhile, but I figured I'd ease back into it with a photo of my dear, dear friend Ali's NYE photo shoot that he did for some spread in some St. Louis something-or-other. Believe me, he explained it...I just can never remember (which is a shocker, I know).
I have had the same black peacoat for about 12 years or so (lay off me, peacoats never go out of style!) and I've had a note from Ali in my coat pocket for almost as long as I've had the coat. It is on the back of one of those tithing cards that they have in church (yeah, ummm...we used to write notes on the back of those and pass them amongst our friends...) and in Ali's very distant handwriting it says, "I love you. Like that agape type of love that they are talking about."
As I was walking into work this morning, I felt the note in my pocket and...well, felt loved.
