It's been different with everyone being at school this semester. I mean, I spent every day with my friends in high school and then all of a sudden, everyone leaves. It's an adjustment but thankfully it's getting closer to Christmas break and my friends are slowly making their way back to Waynesboro. On Tuesday of last week, I went up with my friend Kari to go steal Becca away from her exam studying for a little lunch break. After struggling through the town of Charlottesville, Kari and I finally found Becca's precious little dorm. We picked her up and took a bus to the Corner, the famous strip at UVA with lots of fun shops and restaurants. Sandwiches were eaten at a cute little deli and after, we got the grand tour of the well-known UVA that I live so close to and have only visited once. Crazy, right? Well, it's a beautiful place and I had fun walking around the grounds and taking a few pictures. I'm thankful for visits with friends during this wonderful season. Thank you, college, for giving my friends a month off from school.
