Back in February, I had the one of the best weekends ever! Actually lately I've been very blessed to have several wonderful weekends. It's not really like me to have a getaway. Much less more than 1 of them. But this particular getaway was so special for me for many reasons, but mostly because of the amazing women that I got to spend it with!
Have you ever met someone online and you had this great www relationship with them? (in a totally non-creeper type of way of course) And you found common interests, talked and supported each other. And you're pretty sure that if she lived next door you'd spend your mornings drinking a cup of coffee and folding laundry together all the while chatting away! But somewhere in the back of your head, you wonder that if you really met this woman in person, if you'd really get along so well?
A few weeks ago I got the opportunity to spend the weekend with 12 of my photography students in San Diego at a photography workshop hosted by the amazing Blue Lily Photography. We've been talking online about photography (and lots of other things too) for several years now. I had already met a couple of these ladies in person. But I hadn't met the majority of them, and I wondered. Are they like I think they are? Will they like me? I know they are my students, but are they my friends? I know they already felt like friends, but wondered if it was going to feel the same way in person.
And then I spent the weekend with these wonderful ladies!
I mean OH MY!
These ladies were absolutely as wonderful in person as I thought they would be! As you can see we had a lot of fun learning lots about photography and practicing what we love.
They are in their 20's, 30's, 40's, and even a amazing and talented teenager.
Some live on the east coast, some on the west coast and many in between.
Some have big families and some have small ones.
The one thing we did have in common before our fun weekend was a love of photography and desire to come together and get to know one another. And now that we've done that we also have friendship in common! And for that I am so grateful!
