Now, don't get me wrong, high school was fun enough (my senior year class load consisting of late arrival, 4 art classes, phycology/sociology, and early dismissal) but I was SO ready to move on. I knew there were people I was gonna miss but I also felt very strongly about walking through those large double doors and not looking back.
I graduated high school, got married, moved half way across the country, graduated college, had my first child, and moved back across the country all before turning 22. It was a roller coaster to say the least (good thing I LOVE amusement parks) but with each year that passed and each milestone I reached in my own life, I became increasingly curious about the people I knew and had been so close with back in high school, wondering where they were, what they were doing, and how many of them were reaching the same milestones as me.
Well, almost 9 years of marriage, 2 houses, 2 more babies, a german shepherd, and what felt like the blink of an eye later, here I sit, one night away from my 10 year class reunion. I am excited and more curious than ever and all I have to do now is decide what to wear...

I don't think he let me pay though].
PS Can we just take a moment to enjoy the vastness of my eyebrows in this photo!??... wow.
