my farewell to tara brooke

My beautiful friend Tara is moving away tomorrow. She is getting married at the end of next month and moving to Charlotte, NC. We are having our final Boathouse happy hour tonight. I am super happy for her because she has finally found that guy who treats her the way she deserves to be treated... but at the same time... I'm selfish and want her to stay.

Tara was one of the first girls I met after I moved to the beach. I actually met her on MySpace... see, good things can come from social networking sites. I felt like a complete dork doing so... but I messaged her saying something along the lines of... "I hope you don't think I'm crazy or anything, but I don't know very many girls here and it's sooo hard to meet girls without them thinking you have ulterior motives (thanks crazies!) and you seem like a chill girl and I was just wondering if you wanted to hang out sometime." Thank the Lord up above... and I no doubt think He had a hand in it... because Tara is just the type of girl to welcome you into her little group of friends no matter who you are!

We've been great friends ever since and she has introduced me to some wonderful people along the way and I wish her nothing but happiness and sunshine as she embarks on this new chapter in her life.
I love you, Tara!

& the night it all began...
