Zack and Ruby.

Keeping with the theme from my last post - if there’s one thing I learned from my year in India, it’s that a birthday isn’t really good until there’s a surprise involved!

With that lesson tucked in my pocket, I made my way to Virginia Beach, VA to celebrate my friend Ruby’s birthday. Zack (her husband) and another one of Ruby’s friends, Amber, had helped me coordinate a surprise brunch with delightful donuts, balloons, and beachside coffee as part of the weekend festivities.

The good times rolled on into a beautiful photoshoot with Ruby and Zack who (you will see) are the cutest.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
