My puzzle piece
Mikey and I have many shared interests (photography, family, traveling, wine). Even our careers are similar, which it isn't always easy for me to find someone I can talk "shop" with who doesn't work for the same company that I do.
On Wednesday, June 16th, Mikey was flying in with his momma (my aunt Joan) and two of his sisters (Sherry & Pam). The family was coming in for the huge German/Braun family reunion. I hadn't seen Mikey in 6 years, although we frequently keep in touch via e-mail and Facebook, it isn't the same as in person. I took the opportunity to come and surprise everyone at the Fargo airport. The joy and excitement was just as I imagined it would be - only BETTER! The icing on top was that I was able to bring my Mikey back to Fergus Falls with me for two days until we needed to be in Aberdeen for the family reunion. My family had him all to ourselves and we tried to make the most of it.
I shared some of the sights in and around Fergus Falls with Mikey. This is a pic Mikey took of Abby on the Fergus Falls Riverwalk. The best part of the time was the ability to really catch up on what has happened in our lives and share in a way that we haven't been able to do in a long time.
Mikey took this picture of me while we where at Phelps Mill. We shared a passion about photography and it was fun to trade tips since we both shoot with Nikon's.
