It's been real.
18-years of real.
I'll never forget the day in 1993 when you and I first met.
I was starting college at LSU and could not have been more excited.
You and I have been through a lot together.
Walks along the LSU campus, hikes in California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona,Virginia, Tennessee and the mountains here in beautiful North and South Carolina.
But, after all these years it's finally time for us to part ways.
I'm an adult now and it was made official when my husband, Brad, purchased this awesome North Face backpack for my birthday(which happens to be today).
I would say the two of you could be friends but it's time for you to retire.
Thanks again for the memories.
You'll always be cherished.
Yes, it's my 36th birthday!
I've come a long way since the days of Holly Hobby lunchboxes!
The countdown is on until we are on Lake Erie!
