Marlena and I studied photography together at Jacksonville University. We’ve kept up online but haven’t seen each other since the old days when we hung out in the photo lab (at all hours) together. She lives in Texas now and decided on a whim to come stay with us last weekend. It was SO GOOD to catch up in person. To talk instead of type. Do you know how much time you can save doing that?! I took her to a few favorite spots (Hello, Cruisers!), and we took some pictures of her near her old Neptune Beach stomping grounds. Good times, Marlena. Now it’s my turn to visit. I’ll bring an extra suitcase for my cowboy boots!
