Ten years ago on this day, Emily and I were in Italy together studying art history and printmaking. It’sÂ strange for me to think about years later with graduations, weddings, homes, art-making, jobs, and babies filling the time in between. Now we photograph Emily’s family and sheÂ watches our baby, Juniper. There are all these versions of ourselves keeping in contact though memories and photographs, and I can remember exactly what it felt like to sit side-by-side sketching in Florence, or walk the streets while trying to make up rhyming songs about what we were doing (something Emily was always much better at than I). Now the photos include our families and the rhyming nonsense songs have a captive audience (Charlotte, Nora, and Juniper). So amazing how time works.
Happy first birthday, Nora!
