I’ve wanted to share pictures I took a few weeks back. We were out visiting our friends’ new home and land and celebrating this new beginning with them. We were lucky enough to be there when they announced they are expecting their first child and now it warms my heart to know my little one was there too, me not yet knowing we would be sharing a pregnancy with them.
Stone met A working at the nursery when we first moved to Ithaca. He loved how rooted A was in his passions for trees. He’s the type of guy who says goodnight to his saplings on his windowsill before going to bed. The reason they bought the land was so he could plant his orchards. They took us around and I felt really honored to see the land at the beginning of the journey. He plans on living in that house and taking care of the trees until he dies and knowing what I know of him–I believe it. We joked around their warm kitchen, our bellies filled with cider and stew, that we’d probably be back in that kitchen as old folks, reminiscing about the days when we were planning our dreams and having babies.
Good friends are priceless.
