Picking up where we left off

I just got home from my sister's, and I had a fantastic massage. Just what I needed to start a very special weekend.

Over fourteen years ago, ( has it really been THAT long?) I met a group of very special women, at this very special place. It is a very special place to me for many reasons, and to them as well, and tomorrow we will all be back together again.

College was such a fantastic experience for me. I really found myself in those four years. And most of my memories were with these ladies, drinking boxes of wine, smoking long cigarettes, and dancing on bar tables....I mean studying, and talking. Ahem.

I will be bringing some pictures that will be good for a good laugh.
Really, these are not "what was I thinking?" pictures, these are "was I even thinking at all?" pictures.
Crazy hair styles, and jeans so high, they could have doubled as a top, don't even get me started on the sunglasses because I can't even talk about it.

But really, I am truely so excited to see them, because I know that we will pick up right where we left off, ( minus the hair and the jeans, I hope). Without these people in my life, for those four years, the experience would not have been the same. Late talks in the dining hall, crying with eachother, accepting of eachothers faults, the hard decisions that we had to make, and the hard ones that were made for us. We really watched eachother grow up. You don't live with the same people, for four years and not really know them.

So, have a lovely weekend, and I hope that you have a special girlfriend that you can call, or visit, and pick up right where you left off.

I so can not wait to see you too. It will be yet another time in our lives to make memories together. And although a few faces can not make the trip - they as always will be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Missing you Meal & Jul.
