To bid summer farewell and celebrate the great moments that it did brings us, the girls and I like to get away together for a few days. Over the years it has become somewhat of a ritual especially as we got older and life took its course. While in our teenage years where each one of us lived just streets away, seeing each other was a daily routine. As life happened, it is trips such as these that hold those childhood bonds together.
