Congrats to my good friend, Melissa, her husband, Ryan and their beautiful daughter, Avery! They are expecting their second little one and just found out it’s a boy! It’s such a wonderful thing seeing an old friend you once did basketball drills with every summer at 8am raise (superbly) and love (unconditionally) a family. And to top that, it is so fulfilling to see how wonderful Ryan is as a husband and father! I had the privilege of hosting this kind family in July and just got around to editing some of the photos I took of our New York City adventures. Little Avery is a fearless little firecracker! I simply couldn’t get enough of her bouncy blonde curls and lovely little giggles. Neither could Layla! I miss them dearly, as I always do. Don’t you love the friends you remain connected to even when distance ensues? Looking forward to seeing their family grow! I hope these photos make you giggle, Avery-style. P.S. It’s almost Friday!
