Perfect way to spend a Friday evening: two long-time friends, one pitcher of margaritas, two filled-and-refilled-then-empty glasses, great Mexican food and — best of all — two-plus hours catching up.

Carly graduated from the University of Missouri a few weeks ago, earning her nursing degree in 3 1/2 years. On Monday she starts her real-world career as an oncology nurse at a hospital in Columbia, Mo.

The years certainly do go by quickly. And, as they do, little kids go from playing to maturing into confident, caring adults. We just don’t always want to acknowledge it.

All the best, Carly!
