For CoJo

CoJo, Jake & Aaron

Tomorrow a dear, sweet friend of mine leaves Charleston to its own humid devices to venture north to the land of clams, patriots and red sox. Yes friends, BOSTON.

I’ve known Courtney Jo for nearly three years now, and in that short expanse of time (a blink, really), she has become an indispensable part of my life. Might I add we have both packed in the life experiences over the course of these three years, to include:

  • Job strife
  • Job hilarity
  • Creative inspiration
  • Creative disillusionment
  • Personal empowerment
  • Job loss
  • Job find(s)
  • Death
  • Birth
  • Break ups
  • Back togethers
  • New relationships
  • Laughter
  • Tears (of all varieties)
  • Food & drink (of all varieties)

Through it all, I have come to adore this woman’s face, her easy laughter and tears, her hugs, greeting cards, rides to the airport and support and encouragement beyond measure. CoJo is the little sister I never knew I wanted (I’m the youngest in my family). She’s the friend you can call at 3 a.m., and she will show up. CoJo, I am a better girl/friend/writer/person, because of you. Thank you. Safe travels, my bear!

P.S. Don’t worry, we’ve already planned our fall festival road trip/beer fest/apple picking bonanza trip to Boston.

P.P.S. If you start talking with a Boston accent, I will totally break up with you. LOVE!

    You put it well, Jenny. What a great talent and wonderful person. We’ll miss Courtney Jo, but I have a feeling we haven’t seen the last of her.
