Best Friends Re-Unite

Seven Months. It’s been seven months since E has seen one of his best friends, Greyson, and since I’ve seen one of my best friends, Linda. And it’s always a good idea to get Dee and Tyler to hang out since they never got much of a chance to spend time together while I lived in Clemson. And Molly, well she is a benefit for anyone who meets her with her red hair and sassy attitude. I lived across the street from the Tindals my second year in Clemson. It was pretty much a God-send that year for both families,

Baby Sh-owl-er for Katey and James – Owl Cake

Two weeks ago, some Florence people convened at The Meade House for a night to celebrate Katey and James McCoy and their baby Liam, due to join us all here on earth in just a few weeks. I was honored to be helping these lovely ladies give the shower. We’re all long-time friends from a seemingly different era of Florence history, and it was great to get back and visit with everyone. Hostesses(L to R): Taiter, Sage, Whitney, Me We went with an owl theme for the shower, because Katey and James are decorating the nursery in earthy tones and

Old Friends

It’s hard to imagine that E already has “old friends.” But he definitely has a few who have known him for ages or ages, or whatever you call most of your 8-year-old life. Wyatt has been E’s friend since 2008, when both families lived in Florence. We actually all moved away from Florence in the same month of 2009. Sept. 2012 (E – 8, Wyatt – 6) Oct. 2007 (E – 3, Wyatt – Almost 2) Wyatt came over this past Sunday for an afternoon play date. We haven’t let them do this for a while, what with our schedules

Good Morning DNC

Up until last night when we drove to the airport to pick up my friend, Jenny, for the second time, I hadn’t really considered the DNC a great thing. I was concerned with the crowds, the traffic, and the craziness it would cause our everyday lives as Charlotte residents. Duke Energy Goes Patriotic However, the organized chaos at the airport (it really was handled well from the aspect of picking someone up) and then the Duke Energy building lit up got me in the mood for political parties (and I mean literal parties). Then I found out all kinds of

Charlotte Bcycle Ride Out

A Charlotte Bcycle Charlotte Bcycles for life! Check it out. Tyler, Ethan, and I participated in the Charlotte Bcycle Go Live Ride Out last night. Our friend, the Jeremy Goodwyne, through a series of random events became the station captain for the Kings Drive/CPCC bike station, and he needed some folks to help ride the bikes out. Because I was last minute to the situation, as in three hours previous to the ride out, I really had no clue what I was getting in to. It was amazing. Our Group Charlotte Bcycles is a privately sponsored program to share bikes
