Okay so let me be honest. I am so excited to start this blog. I so very much enjoy writing. I have done short stories and have even finished a novel, which (fingers crossed) may one day be published. But this blog is about Sam McCann and I and the adventures we’ve had. Some will be solo adventures, some group adventures and some that happened as far back as 1988.
First let me tell you about myself and Sam. Sam is the creative genius, the beautiful face behind the camera, a full time mom (guys that’s not easy!), a Girl Scout leader (who has won awards on literally how awesome she is) and last but most definitely not least my best friend. Sam and I met at a Girl Scout meeting when our girls were in Daisies. Let me be honest Sam is always put together so well while I am over in the corner praying to the gods that I remembered deodorant. So when I first met her I was a little intimidated. I mean here is a woman who literally can do it all. And I am not saying this cause she is my bestie. We first started hanging out when we realized that we were both nerds and LOVED musicals. I went with her to her first Comic-con. But I knew we were going to be besties the moment I looked at her when we were running late to see Mamma Mia and said, "If we don’t want to miss the beginning of the show we need to take off our heels and run barefoot". I knew this was a huge thing to ask. I mean who wants to run barefoot in St. Louis, in February when its 33 degrees outside? My best friend that’s who! So since then we have been very close.
Our daughters are also best friends. They met in Pre-K and it was friendship at first "hey I like your mustache you made". That is a story for another time. They are just as weird as their mothers and we LOVE it! And then there’s me.
HI! My name is Friday Ebersohl (yes you read that right), I am the assistant. Not only that but I am a banker by day and a baker/mother/personal assistant/chauffer every other time of the day. I am the caffeinated crazy woman behind Sam while she is snapping who will make sure your kids smile and even manage to get a smile out of you because I literally look like a nut job. In the end though you get your pictures and you smile cause you will always remember the nut job who helped your family laugh to capture this amazing moment.
Being Sam’s assistant is amazing. It’s awesome to work with my best friend. During the day I am a banker. I am a very organized person so I love being able to incorporate that into my job and personal life. I moved to Cobden about 4 years ago. I did not know anyone. Now through photography people know me and I have Sam to thank for that. My daughter has thrived here in Cobden and that’s what makes it perfect. I was raised a city girl. My father was in the Air Force so I have lived everywhere from California to Italy. I have a strong Italian family heritage that I adore. Now living in the country is definitely not what I thought it would be. More stories on that as well in the future.
Now I warn you this blog will contain nerdy things! Everything from the parties we have, the photos we take, the crafts we create to the goodies we bake. Buckle up kids it’s going to be a fun and wild ride.
