Sometimes your life takes you in all kinds of directions even if you plan on having it a certain way.
And sometimes people come into your life and after a while you really can’t imagine a life without them.
The first time I ‘met’ Linda was on facebook, and the first time I met her in real life was in her pilates clothes in a coffee shop in Hermanus…
And from that day I just knew this woman is someone different.
Unpretentious, real, honest and a fellow creative who gets me. And yes, even my crazy and weird ideas.
And then when the two husbands met, well, the deal was sealed… We were friends!
So, 8 months after we met, and soooo many things happened in both our lives, after we had some long talks and some tears here and there, we now laugh together, talk photography together, our husbands work together, we drink tea together (I sometimes make myself at home in their house without them there… and drink all their tea), we plan stuff together, share some secrets and just accept each other the way we are…. a little bit crazy…
I’ve found a true friend in Linda and so I’ve kept this blog post especially for her birthday, which is tomorrow, because she LOVES birthdays just like I do and loves celebrating her one day in the year (which has turned into a birthday-week… I think it’s an awesome invention)
