Remembering lunch at Treehouse Whiskey & Fork, on of my favorite Charlotte restaurants. I was lucky to be able to spend some extra time with dad and Angie while I was in PA school near Charlotte for two years. Dad often wanted to grab a photo at the end of our little hangouts, which I am thankful for... Thinking of you, dad. Love you.
