Very First Post!

I have to say this is all new to me! I have been very impressed by some blogs I've stumbled across in the past & recently one of my close childhood friends was telling me about hers, so I decided to give it a shot! I guess I can start by telling you a little about myself! I'm a college senior at a university in North Carolina. I'm absolutely in love with my major, event planning(even though recent changes in the curriculum will add an extra year to my graduation date). I am from a small southern town and love everything about being Southern. I can't imagine living anywhere else!

Today is the last day of Christmas break and I must say I am unbelievably sad to see it end! There is nothing better than spending a few weeks with no major tasks to fulfill except enjoying time with friends and family! And all the good food is just an additional plus! Over holiday breaks, I know I gain at least 7 pounds! My grandmother is an amazing cook, she still cooks by the old fashioned Southern rule of frying everything. As bad as it is for you, I don't mind indulging every now and then for the holiday's! My favorite thing she makes is fried cabbage. Now I know that probably sounds pretty gross but let me tell you, it is out of this world! I keep telling myself I need to ask her how to make it but I just don't think it could taste the same outside her kitchen!

This break I got to spend a lot of time with my group of high school friends that have remained close throughout the years. I am so lucky to have such a large group of friends that I have stayed close with for all this time. One of our friends has a garage/shop we used to have our parties at in high school and this break we went over there several nights and it felt like time had stood still and we were back in high school again! There is nothing better than reminiscing about old memories with the people who have seen you at your worst and still love you just the same. Old friends truly are a gift!

I have to end this procrastination and get back to packing up all my things to head back to school! I have to say, I bring home more and more every break! I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!
