Valerie was in my graduating class at Waverly-Shell Rock High School nearly a decade ago. (eesh!) She and I were in different friend groups but would often talk in the classes that we shared together. My most vivid memories of her include her making up ridiculous stories of other classmates (in fun - myself included) and telling them loud enough for the person to hear. I remember laughing so hard my gut hurt afterwards. And then her and another one of her friends using my planner as a common place to make fun of each other.
In short, she always made me smile so, with her being a new mom, I am excited to be able to give back.
