I would like to start this post with a little story: Just over 4 years ago, I was brand new to this town and didn’t know anyone. I had to take my van to the Honda dealership for some minor recall maintenance and what was supposed to take 30 to 45 minutes ended up taking almost 3 hours.* While I waited patiently in the small, orange-walled “kid zone” with my two little boys and a pregnant belly, there was another mom and her two little boys – about the same ages as my own – who were also stuck waiting much longer than expected. I don’t think we ever found out why the wait was so long but the experience resulted in a lasting friendship. I don’t get to see Karla as often as I would like because we live in different school districts and, to be totally honest, my social life pretty much consists of small talk with parents and teachers at school drop-off and pick-up. But she will always be my sweet, funny, serendipitous, Honda friend.
So, here they are, The Heyn Family! In September 2016 we finally worked in a family session. Their house is literally surrounded by vineyards, so we didn’t have to search far for some lovely spots for this photo session.
*Please note that this one occasion is not meant to reflect poorly on Honda’s Service department. They have been absolutely wonderful to us!
