It’s difficult to pinpoint the best moments in life until after they’re gone. The fondest
memories aren’t always announced. They don’t come with balloons and feasts and circled dates
on the calendar. Instead, they’re a collection of everyday things we only miss when they’re gone
or have irrevocably changed. Unaware how special each minute can be, people rush through
their lives confident that the best is yet to come. Lauren was no exception. Not knowing it then,
as their car sped down the highway, she was leaving the last vestiges of her adolescence behind.
Years later, Lauren would look back to that trip with Nick and feel a bittersweet twinge of regret.
