The weekend of May 31, 2014, John and I traveled to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to attend the wedding of one of my college friends (congratulations Hallie and Daniel!). I’m originally from the South, so the trip was bittersweet. Sometimes I miss it so much! But, like many others, I’ve moved West. This blanket, taken from my flight, is a reminder that I am always welcome at home in the South, and that great friendships can span even the greatest distances.
