  • Cherish past, learn from mistakes, move forward

    There’s an old saying, ‘there’s no friends like old friends’ and I believe this to be a true statement.

    Even though, I’m 29 (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) I still “hang” out with friends from my high school days. Actually, they’re friends from elementary school. We often take trips together including one to the Virgin Islands. We also get together regularly to eat and catch up on each other’s lives. We’re making plans to go to Gatlinburg and annually go to Cumberland Lake for a girl’s weekend.
