An Afternoon with Grace

We met at Lark in the Park one Sunday morning, brunched,  and did what girls do: gab. And there was really no end to it until we were finally ready to take photos. Grace is adventurous, educated, and above all the least bit girly. So when she came in this beautiful spring dress picked out by our friends and donning a reddish brown haircut, I was taken aback by how great she looked but how it was something I had to get used to. She's worn dresses before and she's "dressed up" but it was the first time where I felt like she was really embracing the entire outfit. It was the perfect attire and hair style for her and it was all on point And as all women know - that makes ALL the difference. We spent most of the day walking around the Dallas Arts District but we really had the best photos in the garden area of the Dallas Museum of Art. We actually had gone to the museum a year or so ago before together just to hang out - she's one of a few friends who can go in depth with me about art. But back then it was a dreary boring and winter day. Nothing like this time - everything i mean everything was perfect for Grace's portraits. The plants were green and growing, the flowers were blooming, and the atmosphere was warm and inviting. It actually was suitable because Grace too was entering a new chapter in her life where basically she was doing the same thing - growing and blooming. Out with the old and in with the new. She reached out to me the other day and dubbed me her new adventure buddy. We actually took archery together for awhile one summer. That's what brought us closer. She told me that she signed up for scuba diving lessons - I imagine that I will be also.
