Being Present for the People You Care for

I’ve been living in Louisville for most of my life with frequent visits to Lexington, Kentucky to see my friends that have made the move. After this last visit I think I will end up joining them. It’s not something that I had really thought of before since Lexington is only about an hour or so away from Louisville and I never did mine the trip down here. But when I saw some of the most rad apartments for rent in Lexington KY the last time that I was visiting, I realized that I could be living here close to my friends!

I have learned a valuable and difficult lesson during my years as an adult: friendships are what keep us going.
