I had friends growing up.
Laughing. Playing. Working together.
But it wasn’t until college that I met Sarah.
Her apartment was right across from our ballroom dance building.
I invited myself over for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Over the next few months we spent hours and hours together.
We practiced our dance moves, and we both made spring team.
Life was amazing.
I don’t know when a casual friendship crosses over to an accept-you-completely-love-you-no-matter-what-for-all-time friendship.
But that’s what I had.
And it taught be how to BE a better friend.
Since then more of my friendships have blossomed.
2 years ago I left our home of 8 years for a new journey, in South Jersey.
I knew it would take time to make new friends. But it took me much longer than I imagined.
Recently, I decided it was time to make some new creative friends.
I joined in a group to photograph smoke bombs.
As smiley as I appeared in the video below, I was quite nervous.
And I felt guilty.
But as I met everyone and we got shooting, it felt perfect.
I put myself out there, and they received.
