2 birds

I've known her for quite some time. Since September of 2007, to be exact. I knew I would love her the moment she asked if she could make out with my Nikon D40. Of course, I let her.

A lot has happened since we first met. We met other bloggers, became closer as a group, not only as bloggers, but as friends. We all were there when she announced she was pregnant. We were there for the announcement that it was twins. Sadly, we were there when James & Jake passed.

Soon after James & Jake, she created Ruby& Roja. It was good for her soul and her heart. Design (and photography) was an outlet for her. (at least that is the way I, as a friend, saw it). There were countless emails of design ideas (she says I'm picky) between us and numerous blog redesigns since. Once even a surprise redesign for my 30th. Beth is crazy cool that way.

But if you know Beth or read her blog, you know that she collects birds. Since losing James and Jake every time I see 2 birds together on a painting, sitting on a branch or on pottery, I think of them. From now until forever, I will think of her boys when I see 2 birds, and I will think of my amazing friend, Beth.

So when she spilled the beans about her new adventure, I got chills. Chills from thinking just how perfect and simple the name was and for the excitement I have for her.

So go on over and check it out, will ya?

Congrats on your new adventure Beth!

This is so sweet and seriously brought tears to my eyes. I can't believe all that we have been through in the time that we have known each other. It's heartbreaking and amazing and beautiful, all at once.

So beautiful.

Thank you for this. Love you, D.

What an amazing friendship and to think it all started with a simple Blog. I love this new venture of hers and love the name she chose. I also think about James & Jake when I see 2 birds together.
