Just got back from a fun filled five days in Texas with friends from college. We all gathered to celebrate a friend’s birthday and spend several days “turning up.” When I went to school I was the youngest in this particular group and they all welcomed me in as freshman and as their friend. 15 years later we are still going strong. This trip was a reminder that sometimes you need to take a trip not to be a tourist, or roam a city but simply to spend time with people you love. The weekend was filled with jokes, stories, laughter and memories. I’m not going to share any pics from the weekend because I’m protective of my crew and well we had fun. BUT I will share this one of me. My smile shows just how good it feels to be surrounded in love and with people who make you better.
