#2,252 Farewell Cookout.
by Erin Napier
Jimmy Don has been friends with everyone in Laurel via Instagram for over a year now. It’s crazy. Like he’s lived here all along or something! Since they’re leaving on a jet plane at 7 am, tonight we had a farewell cookout at Jim and Mal’s for our good Texas buddy who always comes bearing incredibly gracious gifts and remembers every face and name.
I feel so lucky to have a group of friends who feel like a family that visitors from 2 states away feel like they’re part of it too the minute they arrive. I hope you have a great framily too, dear reader.
