DIARY OF A CRACKED METAPHOR: Chapter Four, Can you say ‘Girls Trip’?

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Can you say “Girls Trip?”

It’s a million lovely things to pack a bag and get on the road with the girls. My “Ashelorette” in Asheville will remain in my mind as good and adored memories special thanks to the unforgettable friends who planned it for me.

It’s amazing the friendships you can keep even when a lot of distance and separation is involved, but when you get back together with them, it’s like no time has passed; you pick right back up where you left off. Those are the kinds of friendships I want to keep and cherish forever.

Have you ever had the kind of friend that just wanted to party and didn’t want to talk about anything important? I truly believe the company you keep is reflected by those you choose to surround yourself with. I must say it’s been a rough road weeding people out who don’t belong in my life, but rewarding when you land yourself with an exceptional group of people who truly care about and love you and are there for you whenever you need them.

Also, post-COVID wedding season is back in motion.

It’s been almost a year since I’ve picked up a camera but elated to get offered to be a second shooter for a few weddings this month and next month.

Just like writing, there is something therapeutic about photography. Sometimes photographs can tell a million more words than words themselves can; they are in the eye of the beholder. I personally think wedding photography is especially remarkable. The enjoyment I get from sharing the best day of a couple’s life is unmatched.

While planning my own wedding, I constantly get excited for the photography piece as it’s so so important to capture our day in a way that tells our story. I cannot wait. Speaking of memories, photos are the best kind to remind ourselves of our happiest days and to appreciate those moments. That’s why I always have to get at least one good photo while I’m traveling or doing something special.

I guess it’s a good thing in a way that I’ve been experiencing writers’ block. Keeping feelings in check and living my best life. That’s all we can do, right?
