It's Going to be a Full Life!


Middleton Place Plantation, Charleston, S.C.

I've stolen this from my nephew Jesse's Facebook site because it charmed me so. I wasn't as clear about my goals when I was 19. I think he presents as an interesting, well rounded, energetic and ambitious person. It's listed as a first edition and he is open for suggestions. Do you have anything he should add?
