Milestones are happening in the Fleur-De-Licious world! Milestones like the last day of law school class. And the last finals ever. And impending real world lawyer jobs. MOST IMPORTANTLY however, Kate will be moving to Dallas soon, which is where I live, which means that for the first time since graduating high school in 2006…I get to live in the same city as my best friend.

Yep. We’re getting savory and (somewhat) healthy(?) up in here. And I’m not even the doctor in this blog partnership!
