Friends and Family
You know what they say, you can't pick your family but you can pick your friends. I've said this before, if you are lucky to find good friends you hold on to them!! This past weekend I was inspired to take some pictures for our friends, The Alvelos'. Pete left today for 5 1/2 months and I wanted to give him something that he could hold on to for that time. I wanted to give him a piece of his family to take along, so we set up a photoshoot. The love in their family shines through their pictures. I was in tears with every click of the shutter. Being a Navy family you deal with separation all the time. Some women just move on as soon as their husbands are gone, but in their case it's hard to just move on. Pete is not just a husband, but a great father and a great friend to Isabel and to us. We will miss you while you are gone, but celebrate when you get back.
