The list just goes on and on. When I was in middle & high school, I resented living in a small town. Now, I wouldn't trade that upbringing for anything.
Here are a couple pictures I took while I was there:
This is me and Jesse. We were best friends all throughout high school and college. She was our high school's valedictorian and I was the salutatorian. It was awesome sharing that moment with her. I am also responsible for introducing her and her husband, David. They are expecting their first baby, Jackson, in November.
It's true what they say, there is definitely no place like home!
