I often write about food and recipes here on Citizens, but this past weekend served up something new -the most happy, hardy helping of soul food as my best friend Suz visited us in Charlotte.
Suz and I have been friends for... gosh... like 16 years?! Can it really be that long?! Suz and her family moved to my hometown in Florida when I was in the sixth grade and we've been close friends ever since.
Here's us in high school (sadly the only pic of us I had access to since it was on Facebook!)
Our visit together in Fayetteville, NC while her husband Brian was deployed to Afghanistan (2007)

I am so infinitely grateful for Suz and her friendship throughout the years that the very thought of it brings tears to my eyes. It is such a blessing to have her in my life. I had forgotten how refreshing our time together is and how I always leave our reunions exhausted from laughter and with a plump, full heart. :)
Thank you Suz for walking through life with me. Your friendship is one of the greatest gifts I've ever received and I can't wait to see what the next 16 years hold for our friendship and families.
