Leslie and I go WAY BACK. She was one of the first friends I met when I moved to NY from Texas, just out of college. We were very close for a long time, then as often happens, life took us in different directions. Happily, we’ve reconnected and I’ve had the wonderful experience of meeting her two kids for the first time. So much like her – easy going, bubbly and a lot of fun to be around. One evening in October, in the midst of pizza, hockey and Halloween preparations, we were able to squeeze in a few quick photos. Looking forward seeing you all again soon!
