I have always enjoyed journaling and documenting major events/milestones in my life. I found writing down how I was feeling or what I was up to was therapeutic. I could express all of my dark and twisty emotions inside the pages of my journal instead of lashing out at family and/or friends. Reading through the entries I wrote between the years of 2008-2013 is truly horrifying and I will surely die of embarrassment if anyone reads what I wrote about my high school crushes or the diagrams I drew to show how I was going to pass my driving test.
This past weekend I was able to travel to NYC to visit one of my oldest friends, Melissa Kereji. We have been friends for over 20 years and have always remained close despite living in separate states for the past 8 years.
Last spring, Melissa moved to New York from Nashville and since she arrived we have been talking about planning a girls weekend. Last weekend we were finally able to make it happen! Two other girlfriends, Andrea Shirey and Melissa Rentfrow, also made the trip to the big apple.
We had so much fun in beautiful Montego Bay, Jamaica! Most of our days were spent at the beach reading. Meredith read 3 books and Jeff read 1.5, we are pretty proud of that! We really enjoyed the quality time and break from every day life.
Our trip began with an early flight out of Detroit, we left for Charlotte at 8:30 and then Charlotte to Montego Bay at 11:30
