A very large part of the reason Mr. Forager took a work assignment in Joshua Tree, CA was to be close to his best friend, Mike and his family. Mike, Mr. Forager & I have all known each other since our swingin’ single days back in Florida. He was the best man at our wedding and his wife, Veronica was unable to travel at the time being very pregnant with twin boys. We drive over to San Diego about once a month to spend the weekend with Mike, Vero & the boys. M & V had barely adopted their oldest, Caleb when they found out they were pregnant with twins, Alex & Noah. Needless to say, weekends with them are filled with craziness and laughter, but can be exhausting for those of us who aren’t used to the insanity that comes with a household full of toddlers!
Part of living an artsy life is to embrace each day as it comes, finding the joy even in the simple moments. This weekend was filled with the pleasure of being allowed to just be. Aren’t those the times and people we love best?
