Don’t worry, Julia. It’s in good hands. –Em

I’m not Julia, the author of Picture :: Happiness, but one time she edited her blog on my computer and didn’t log out of her account so now I’ve got the keys to the car (so to speak).

Last week, Julia posted her ::photo ode to Nashville:: so as I sit here at my house in Nashville, not having my good friends Andy, Julia, and Ellie a few houses down the street for the first time in 8+ years, I thought I’d give you blog readers my photo ode to the most amazing friends and pseudo-family a girl could ask for.

Here are a few happy littles from over the past 8+ years…

flood1The great flood in Nashville ruined the first floor of my home (while I was on vacation), but thanks to Andy, I didn’t lose ::all:: of my belongings. And thanks to both of them, my house was quickly cleaned out and gutted so the rebuilding could start (plus, they let me live in their house while mine was being fixed)…

It will be a different Nashville without you all here with me. Thank you for 8 wonderful years with more happiness and happy littles than I could ever put in a blog.

Love,

Em
