This family is a very special one to me. Jesse and I met Roxanne years ago back when we were playing softball. Roxanne was not at all put off by my loud mouth and terrible jokes. In fact she told me later that she loved it. We became great friends despite her work schedule which immediately doused all her dreams of playing softball on our team once a week.
The day they left San Diego was a sad one because I was losing my friend and turbo kickboxing partner. It seems that is the way it goes here in San Diego. The reason is always the cost of living or the inability to maintain steady work in your field of choice. Roxanne and Colin’s reason was the latter and it was hard to lose them.
Over the years we have kept in contact with visits to them up north and many visits from them back here in San Diego. Ever since they started making babies we try to make time for photos. I didn’t get to see enough of them on their last visit due to a busted hot water heater at our house and a total meltdown from me about life in general. Luckily Roxanne is very understanding so I felt very blessed to have spent our Friday night together and to have a friend that gets it.
These photos only show you how the first part of our evening went down. We spent the rest of our time hanging out, sharing some food and drinks, tellings stories and watching their two girls entertain my dad. I wished so badly to have them in my life here in San Diego permanently. Here’s to hoping that one day that wish comes true.
