Wordless Wednesday: Remembering Julia

10:10 PM Posted by Erin





Yesterday my brother called me, it was the worst kind of news. Our friend Julia had died. I am in shock. She was one of the most vibrant, beautiful people I've ever met. There was just something about her. She could make you feel like you'd known her forever after five minutes and you'd never forget her. She just had this remarkable glow about her. I grew apart from Julia after my wedding where she stood by my side as my bridesmaid. We were just on different paths, me being a wife and mother- and her enjoying being a carefree twenty-something. But I always loved Julia and I always will. I know this is WORDLESS WEDNESDAY- but Julia deserved so much more.

    She was less than a month older than me. I hate to her that. You can tell from the pictures she was a wonderful person.
