Trying to smile

There’s an old adage that says:

“Don’t cry because it’s over….smile because it happened.”


Easier said than done.  Even if you know somebody is in a better place– and you know you’ll see them again one day– it’s hard because they’re not here.  Call us worldly and selfish, but we miss our friends.  Someone like Lauren makes me want to live by that old adage, however.  Not too many people come along that make you a better person for having known them.  I am a better Sloane because I knew Lauren Witty, and I am thankful to have considered her a friend.

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,



About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
