Joz's Birthday Brunch

I spent this past weekend in Kansas City, MO celebrating my good friend's 26th birthday. I met Jasmine (A.K.A "Joz") my senior year in undergrad - a time when I thought I was done making life-long bonds with people. But our relationship is a testament to how wrong I was! If I've learned anything this far in life, it's the importance of continuing to forge and foster genuine relationships with genuine people. And Jasmine is one of the most genuine people I've ever met in my life. Needless to say, a weekend trip to celebrate her life - despite my busy schedule - was no question! The trip wasn't a vacation by any means, but it was a get-away. It was a reminder of the magic that happens when you forget about the worries of the world and let your hair-down. Happy birthday Joz!!!
