It blew my mind when I thought about it, but I’ve known Julia for probably 2/3s of my life. She is an amazing soprano — even in middle school I was in awe of her voice, which was light-years ahead of every other singer I’d ever known, or known since — and we met up a few months ago in Houston after a long period apart. “You look the same!” she said. “You look the same!” I said. So yeah, put us next to each other and we probably look the same as we did when we were twelve. (haha)
Julia and Alex have been together forever (maybe not as long as she and I have known each other, but pretty close) and are engaged. On another recent trip back to Houston, we met up again for engagement photos — and to see the new Bean at the new Glassell building by the MFAH. I was so excited about all of it. And so excited to meet Julia and Alex’s rescue pup, Dolly. Pups in photos always make me happy!
