I’m taking a break from regular posts today in remembrance of my dear friend Katherine who passed away two years ago to this day when she was 24. This loss hit me really hard, as I had never had a person I love leave the world so unexpectedly. As I remember her even more so today, here’s one of my favorite moments from our past that exemplified our friendship & our common interests in conversation, good food, and good friends. We were only in 7th grade in this photo, making cookies (and then eating them, of course!) as we did regularly…but those wonderfully simple times define our times together and are what I will always remember most.
