Meet Taryn. She and I went to high school together at West Charlotte. She was funky, artsy, quiet, and oh so cool. I wanted to be her friend so bad. Then, it happened. I think it happened while we were on the swim team together, then in Biology our senior year. My influence in her life was spring break '96 and a full set of acrylic nails for prom. I mean, go big or go home. We talked about going to the same college, but that didn't work out for me. We lost touch after our sophomore year of college and only recently stumbled back into each others' lives. (at the perfect time) And for that I am so thankful. She is now married and has a beautiful daughter. Meet Nora Fern. This lovely lady is funky and smart like her mama. Charis loved her as she sang to her on the blanket at the park. Nora is 2 going on 15. She was talking about how she was going to high school. Her mama uses big words like "carcasses" with her. I hope Charis and I get to keep spending more time with these 2 amazing ladies.
