Friends on Adventures

As I shared a couple weeks ago, one of my very best friends was moving this summer and I recently had to say a bittersweet goodbye to my girl, Jenna. She and her husband, Andrew, just embarked on the most wild adventure to Haiti and will be living there for the next year.


Jenna and I have been friends since high school, but we became especially close through our college years. I could bore you to tears with endless stories so I will spare you the inside jokes. Needless to say, I have never lived in Athens without Jenna and she is the last of my closest peers to move out of state (well, country). It's crazy to think I took for granted something as simple as texting, since we can only message through a free Vonage app.

Jenna is one of those soul-mate-best-friends who you can pick up with right where you left off and luckily I will have a way to keep up with her new life and adventures. She just started a blog to chronicle life in Haiti and so far they have been persevering through the language barrier and some unexpected challenges. I hope you join me in reading her blog- Beyond Mountains!
