I could easily write a novel about the woman in these photos; Karen is one of my very best friends in the entire world. I’ll spare you the Animal House-esque details about our time as college roommates, but I will say that she has really impressed me as a mom to her step-sons and as a wife. I’m so happy I got to see her over Memorial Day weekend at her new home in Pacifica, CA. Karen and her husband Ray are expecting a baby in about a month but they won’t be finding out the gender until the delivery. I am just dyyyyiiing to find out if I get to go shopping for blue or pink! My intuition tells me it’s going to be a girl since EVERYONE I know is having a boy this summer. The only downside of Karen having a girl, though, is that the baby won’t be able to grow a beard like daddy one day. Bummer.
Here are a few shots from our little session in Karen’s neighborhood. Yes, Pacifica is a beach town, but as a SoCal native, I’m not always impressed with waves and sand. I was however totally smitten with the greenery in Pacifica and I’m sure Ray will grumble again when I repeat what I said to him when we first arrived. “I love it here! It makes me feel like I’m in the movie Twilight!” Doesn’t it though??
