I’ve long missed the magic of taking a photo and seeing how it develops, dropping off a roll of film at the pharmacy and picking up an envelope of photos an hour later, hoping some of them are good. I finally bought us an Instax Polaroid camera so I can have the suspense of seeing what develops again:
Our town is heartbroken over the sudden loss of a teenage girl who was the daughter of our friends Jamie and Joe. If you wouldn’t mind, please send up a prayer for the broken hearts in our community tonight. Natalie was a ray of a sunshine every time we walked through the doors of the bakery. She is already missed so badly.
