deep laughs and old friends.


rob

this is my friend rob.

we met on our very first day at juilliard. the very same day we had to wear body-skimming clothes for our alexander technique photos (acting school is strange) and when the time for his photo came rob stripped to nothing but tighty whities. 

we've been friends ever since.
(get your head out of the gutter, it wasn't like that).

rob and i haven't seen each other for a while. so last night we made a date for dinner followed by swing-dancing classes at lincoln center (there is so much to do and take advantage of during a new york city summer!).

and when, at that moment during dinner, i pulled out my camera for the cursory pictures he made some peter parker comment (classic) and then proceeded to fire off fifty at a time (usually i have to beg people to take three in a row). he had me laughing so hard that my sometimes-snort crept back in. it's not terribly attractive that snort, nor are the veins now protruding from my forehead. but at least i know i'm laughing, deeply. i'd take real laughs, deep snorts, and pulsing veins any day of the week if it means a life lived fully.

These are just so joyful. I love them!!

P.S. I was inspired by your eyebrows and that post you did, so I made an appointment at the Benefit Brow Bar to get them looking top notch before my trip to Vegas.

Erin said...

Meg, you are GORGEOUS when you laugh!! More pictures like this please!! :) So wonderful to have a friend like Rob -- who is a looker, if I do say so myself. ;)

Arianna said...

So beautiful! There's nothing I love more than candid photos of laughter :) I'd always much rather have those than posed ones.

Taylor said...

Belly laughs that make your stomach hurt are the best! Sadly there aren't too many friends who make me laugh this hard. When they do, I know they are keepers!

becky said...

This is wonderful. Oh, it truly, truly is.

iheartkiwi said...

I love the nose crinkle! That's the sign of a good laugh.

Cassie said...

what a handsome gent, and he makes you laugh ;)

you are truly lovely, my dear!

Kate said...

I think that it's most attractive when someone isn't worrying about what they look like. When people stop worrying and just live in the moment, that's the most beautiful thing.

True friends are ALWAYS able to make you laugh like that.

Vartikaz said...
