Photo Phriday's triumphant return

Today's photos are a tribute to one of my very favorite people on the planet--Paul Parson. Paul was my former boss in the Marketing Department, and today is his last day at Children's.

When I first met Paul seven years ago, I had no idea how much a part of my heart he would become. He believed in me when I didn't believe in myself. He pushed me to be better. He loved me even when I weighed 300 pounds, and he has supported me every step of my journey. He is one of my very best friends. I adore him.

We also tend to take a lot of pictures together. Here's a sampling (through thick and thin, quite literally).
The very first picture we ever took together. It was my third day at Children's.

You are just too cute, Erika! And you inspired me to return to my WW meetings - it's been a good week!
