A Sad Goodbye...

Every once in awhile, you meet someone who you INSTANTLY click with. Someone you are so comfortable with that you never have that awkward "try to keep the conversation going while you try to entertain every time you are together" stages. Someone who is so similar to you it is almost scary. Someone who you can tell anything to and know they won't judge you for it.

Well for the past 2 years I have been lucky enough to have a friend just like that.

There are many reasons the Moffitts are on my list of favorite people. I would like to share a few.

1. They are a major part of almost every East Coast adventure we have had.

2. They love Kerrigan. They even changed their plans for going out of town so they could be here when we blessed her. She loves her Aunt Ami and Uncle Matt.

3. They are willing to be crazy with us. When we say, "Let's dress up for this party"...THEY DELIVER!!!!

When I say, "Ami let's dance like our Guitar Hero characters!" she not only meets, but EXCEEDS expectations!!!

When I say, "Ami, go frolic in the ocean", does she dabble her feet in the water...HECK NO!

When we say, "Sit next to the crazy lady on the subway", do they shy away...COURSE NOT!!!

Ok, that's not actually how that happened, but I really like this picture and really wanted to share it : )

4. They like to watch horrible movies with us. Once we watched a documentary about King Toads. It was AWFUL. We like to joke about it, it was so bad. We are going to miss that!

So now that you know why we love them so much, I get to break your heart. A mere 17 days ago, Matt was offered a job in Phoenix. By Friday they will be gone : (

We are so sad to see you guys go! We have had some great times and will miss you so much! Thank goodness you will be living so close to my family so we will still be able to see you at least a few time a year!

They let me take some "Farewell Connecticut" pictures. Here are some of my favorites:

Hi Lindsey!
I'm so bummed! We left NY in April and now we're in AK, we would have totally loved to hang out! Where does your husband work in the city? we got a permanent job offer out there and we're contemplating living in CT if/when we move back to the East coast. Where do you guys live in CT?

I know how you feel about your camera not being able to do what you want it to! I went through that for a whole year. The blurry background (bokeh) is produced by both the camera and the lens. Some lens' don't get as blurry. When you do buy a dslr camera, you want to buy a lens with a low f-stop (mine goes down to 1.8) 22 is the highest it will go. The lower the f-stop the more blur you will get. Please buy a dslr and then we can talk photography for hours and hours!! Haha. But until then, feel free to ask any questions you have. I don't mind one bit. Your pictures are looking so good. OH! And I was going to tell you... From my experience, using a camera that doesn't do all of the fancy stuff makes you get creative so that your shots still look good and interesting. So play with what you have and you WILL improve faster than someone who has a dslr right from the beginning. That's just my opinion. You can by a Canon Rebel for around 500 bucks and I know that those are pretty good cameras for beginners, just in case you were wondering.

One more thing, even with your point and shoot, the closer you are to the subject, the more blur in the background you will get naturally. So work with that in mind.
