Nelson. One of the great things about walking around and exploring with clients is you never know what you will learn. As we walked by the Lamar Restaurant, Colleen explained that it was the site of their first almost date and a rejection! I will let her tell the story:
We had met in Hattiesburg some time before this but never had a date, but I was walking by the Lamar and saw him through the window. I went in and I think we had a cup of coffee or something and through the conversation asked him out for the weekend to attend my high school reunion. He turned me down. He says it was either because it was short notice or thought it would be better for me to go alone or he was working a lot as a landman. He did get my phone number and called and asked me out shortly thereafter and we've been together ever since.
Chay, today. Her style is the very definition of the theme celebration. She always has joy to spare in the pictures she takes.
