I met my dear friend Ansley (prego one…but not prego no mo’! Read the crazy-near-birth-in-car story!!) when I moved to Charlotte to work with CCC. She is best friends with Kelly (right of me, adorable dress) and has been since birth. I met Kelly when I moved to Columbia because she and her husband live here and we shared a mutual best friend. Now I count HER one of my favorite joys of living in Cola-town! I went to college with Morgan (cutie in the middle with great earrings) at Marshall and now having worked together have become bff with her! Ansley moved back to Charleston after she and her family came back from STINT in NYC and was placed on the same staff team as Morgan and now THEY are friends!! Follow all that?!? Throw Shannon (gray sweater and amazing hair) in who we all love and who married a college friend of mine and you are guaranteed a great time!
We decided we wanted to get together for a day to relax and be together. We started back in September looking for a date to make it happen and finally were able to land on a Saturday in February. It was soooo fun!
First, Kelly and I had some good drive time and prayer time on the way to Charleston. The Charleston girls had an outreach the night before and were slightly ridden with what I affectionately call a “ministry hang-over”. So we had brunch and laid around till mid-afternoon.
After that we had worked up an appetite and treated ourselves to Coast Bar & Grill, aka the yummiest meal ever.
We vowed to do it again soon and next time bring the boys!
