Reunited and It Feels So Good

Yesterday, the stars and the moon aligned perfectly and I was able to visit with several of my college friends in College Town, Indiana.


From Alaska to Chicago to Indiana we came for a few precious hours together after nearly 9 months apart. (aka 9 months since graduation and the start of "real life".... we had no clue real life would suck so much!)

Anyway, we ate and talked and talked and talked... it was a perfect day.

"Sometimes in life, you find a special friend. Someone who changes your life just by being a part of it. Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop. Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world. Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it. This is forever friendship. When you're down and the world seems dark and empty, your forever friend lifts you up in spirit and makes that dark and empty world suddenly seem bright and full. Your forever friend gets you through the hard times, the sad times and the confused times. If you turn and walk away, your forever friend follows. If you lose your way, your forever friend guides you and cheers you on. Your forever friend holds your hand and tells you that everything is going to be okay. And if you find such a friend, you feel happy and complete because you need not worry. You have a forever friend, and forever has no end." Author Unknown

How fun! You all look great. It's amazing how special it becomes to see friends after college ends--real life has a way of making it difficult to coordinate. I find myself appreciating those get-togethers much more now that I only see some of my good friends every three to six months.

Lucky you! Sounds like fun.

The only friends I have left after college are boys. Two of which are slightly awkward to be around because of "history". And they're all over the world nowadays, working, snowboarding, tree-planting, drinking. I miss those testosteroney little buggers.

I haven't kept in touch with any of the girls.

Belle said...
