I can’t remember if we just stopped by the mall to return something or if we saw a family movie first, but we walked into Lynnhaven Mall in Virginia Beach. I was definitely sick and feeling awful. I am not even sure if I brushed my hair that morning and we walked through the food court when I spotted the Marangoni family. They then spotted us and both our faces lit up. We stood in the mall chatting with them for a long time. It is always like that with them. Sometimes we don’t see each other for months, but the minute we do it feels like neither of us have missed a beat. I call them kindred spirits because anytime you have this kind of friendship its so perfect and kindred! 🙂 We met them when Mara had her youngest, Leah. She asked us to come to her house and do a photo-shoot for them in their home and it has been a growing relationship since them and we absolutely love them. Momma, Mara homeschools her kids, just like me and Brian works in the Corporate office of Geico. They have these three beautiful children Bry, Emma and Leah. After their session this past Sunday evening we got to hang out with them for a little bbq and smores to follow. It was a blast! Can’t wait to see these guys again.
