This week, I thought I would join Amber over at starfish blog for the "Summer in Snapshots" series. I thought I was on the ball and getting it done a day early, but it actually began yesterday. Plus, these photos were from two weeks ago. So, I figure I'm spot on.
This is Mary and Marissa.
I met Mary online through the National Down Syndrome Chat Room.
I learned she lived close to my sister, Carol and a wonderful friendship was born.
I think the first time we met, the three of us closed down a restaurant.
The second time we met, it took us 6 hours to cover everything we wanted to talk about.
It was Epic.
This time, we got to meet each other's daughter's.
Only for 2 hours, but Epic in it's own right.
Brenna and Marissa found out they each like Justin Bieber, American Idol, art, camp and had many other similarities. Marissa is bright, funny, outgoing and just an all around sweet heart. Mary is a gal after my own heart. A killer sense of humor, a core of strength, the best laugh and always her daughter's advocate. Love her.
Hop on over to Amber's and see what others are doing this week!
