This year, I went on a quick Thanksgiving road trip to Nashville to visit one of my childhood besties–the lovely Ashley! 😉
The trip was kinda crazy…we took a pebble to our windshield…there was rain almost the whole way up…and traffic was so bad…it took us 15 hours to get there…instead of the normal 12.
My husband and I had frayed nerves by the time we arrived…but…after getting a chance to hug everyone and hang out…the rough start was forgotten.
Along the way, I got a chance to have coffee with the lovely Latoya Reed from Flying into First Grade!
I also discovered the joys of Cracker Barrell’s Green Tomato & Ham Soup which comes with a grill cheese sandwich on a multi grain bun!
And now to tell you about my awesome ‘extended’ family…
Ashley & I met when we were 17…but I grew up with her husband. His sister was in my very first class 17 years ago! Small world, eh?
I quickly claimed Ashley’s 8 year old little brother when they moved to our town! He was SO cute…and tiny…well…fast forward almost 20 years…
Andrew is all grown up…and married to his sweet Wendy and a father of two!
Couldn’t be prouder of him and am glad that I got to see him before he goes to Afghanistan for the year.
I hope you had a nice holiday with your family! 🙂
