Don't go

Vancouver can be a rather tricky place to make friends I've found. It's a pretty transient city, and really making friends as a grown up is always something weird to me. Especially as I don't work in an office, or with people other than toddlers....where do you find people?

Luckily for me, I have met some awesome people here. Now if only I could convince them to stop leaving! My dear friend Julie and her wee family made the trip back to Edmonton yesterday, and we miss them already. I love that photo up there, in all its out of focus glory, it's so indicative of our friendship. Lots, and lots of laughing. Sprinkled amongst tea drinking, feminist theorizing, knitting in public and a mutual love for....ok, food.

Our two families have become extremely close over the short (since July last year, I think) time we've known each other. Even the shy husbands became friends. Love that. I also love more out of focus photography, because Richard's fingers look amazing.

We miss you already!

Oh, and how we all miss you! Teague kept saying your name (or... his version of your name) on the airplane.
We will see you soon enough, my love.
