Let Me Introduce You

This is my friend, Staci. We have been running buddies and best friends for a very long time. In the early 80's, we began a road trip tradition by going to church camps and choir tours together. In our 20's the two of us backpacked in Greece and Turkey for 5 weeks. Talk about a road trip! Now days, we usually hit the road at least once a year to shop at every garage sale we see and just have some girl time. We both like us some antiques.

Wanna see pictures?

Here, we are in London in the early 90's. Antiques in London. Sweet!

  13. How lucky you two are that you've had the chance to travel like you had, so great you've had the same friend all these years to share these special moments with. My best friend that I've had since 7th or 8th grade is a Stacy also ... through thick and thin our friendship has stayed strong, even though we don't get to see each other often now, I know no matter what If I call her she'd be there no matter what.
