“Thank goodness for best friends. For true friends, the ones who love you no matter what.”
Lauren Clark, Stay Tuned

“Spending time, here in Eufaula, has helped me realize that barreling through life at a breakneck pace -- while exciting, sometimes glamorous, and always loads of fun -- has been, at best, a distraction. A useful tool in avoiding personal introspection or thoughts of the future.”
Lauren Clark

“That's what parents do let their children go and have lives. Pursue their dreams. Letting go of the best thing that ever happened to me is the biggest act of love I can think of.”
Lauren Clark, Pie Girls
