That's exactly what happened with Morgan Henzlik. We both went to Westminster, and I knew her by name. I was a little shy/unsure of myself in high school, and I never would have had the guts to just go up to someone and ask to be their friend. As luck would have it, we both beame friends with Nikole Morrow-Pettus, the most talented make up artist in the city (cross my heart. She works at Van Michael Buckheadand will change you life). Nikole reminded me about Morgan and that in the 10+ years since high school, she'd grown into an Atlanta style icon. Seriously. She now owns Morgan Kylee, a boutique where the who's who of Atlanta shops.
A few weeks ago I did write that email to Morgan and we met for a drink. Morgan came in wearing a leather hat and military shirt and looked effortlessly cool.
