Now, the Willott family bid on my donated session and we met on a very chilly December day to take photos. Krista and her husband and their three energetic, adorable BOYS welcomed me into their home. The boys showed me their Elf of the Shelf and their gingerbread houses and we took photos in front of the Christmas tree in between periodic tiny boys wandering off. I could feel Taylor there that day too.
I will never forget her, and I know that everyone who ever met Taylor feels the same way. It is a strange thing experiencing loss as my age, having a friend who grew up the neighborhood over leave before any of us were ready for her to. But she was ready to be a star and we will always look up to her.
