My best friend, Casey lives in Durham and works as a top oncologist radiologist for Duke, running a rural clinic for women with Cancer. She is brilliant, beautiful and witty and it is difficult to keep up with this woman! We have been best friends for 15 YEARS (we met as freshman undergrads at Carson-Newman College) and celebrated last week.
Casey took me to the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill on Friday evening for Friday On The Porch. The atmosphere was fun and patrons certainly get a feel for the colonial and antebellum South. We sipped cocktails outdoors and listened to a hip blue grass band.
The kids really loved the music and twirled and twirled. Casey finally had to ask me to stop but I was busting a move too. (Kidding.)
Ryan (Casey's beau) met us later for a drink and then we went to Lantern in Chapel Hill for dinner. It is an asian fusion restaurant and amazing. We had so much fun. I wish I lived closer to Casey but we've all decided we'll have to meet in Asheville once in a while (another beautiful Southern city) to catch up which is about half way between Knoxville and Durham.
