So, in late September, my great friend Katherine Forehand Smith and her fabulous husband Fred came to Charlotte to surprise their sister (and sister in law) on her birthday. Amanda Niles, Alison Henry, E.A. Ritter and I went to celebrate with the family and spend some good time with our friends. It was great to see them state-side as the last time we saw each other was in London. I hope to see them again soon back in London.
