A week in pictures

In November 2010 I took a random weekend trip to Wilmington to visit some friends from college. Their church had recently opened a coffee shop and their pastry chef friend, Carly, was bringing cookies that afternoon. I met Carly that day and she told me that there was a possibility she'd move to Raleigh, so we exchanged numbers. A month or so later after moving to this area, I invited her to one of my parties and we quickly became friends. Carly is one of those people you can't help but love. Bubbly, energetic, funny, thoughtful, talented (she inspired me to expand my cooking and baking skills) and such a loyal friend. She moved to San Jose in the spring of 2012 but I couldn't let her get away that easily. This past week was the second trip to go see her in California and it was filled with baking, singing (mostly her), laughing, sight seeing and lots and lots of good food that you can't get in North Carolina. I also got to be part of her surprise birthday party :) I am so glad that God allowed our paths to cross that weekend over three years ago! Here's to good, lasting friendships :)
