Saturday night Rob and I went to a get-together with a few friends that I graduated with. (It's been 25 years since I graduated.) Just a very informal mini - high school class reunion. Oh yes, I had these 'great expectations' of making my 'grand entrance' into this event! I thought surely that a "hush" would come over the crowd and a light wind would blow through my hair as I walked into the room. And of course I would be the beautiful diva that everyone flocked too. Oh how I had such high hopes..............(You may want to check out my post: "Reunion, anyone?")
I of course spent hours curling, straightening, foofing, ratting my hair so that I had the fluffy soft perfect hairdo that all the other women would be envious of. (Well it took about 1/2 hour for my perfect hair to fall frumpy and straight while needless to say all of my fellow females hairdos stayed full and fluffy thru-out the entire night.)
All kidding aside, it ended up being a wonderful night. I got to spend some great time with some old friends. Each and every one of us looked fabulous and had a spectacular time.
For those of our fellow classmates who were unable to make it, it was unfortunate, and we all missed seeing you.
The night certainly wasn't about who looked better than anyone else, or who had made the most money over the last 25 years. It wasn't about who was driving the 'hummer' or the 'corvette' or who was still bagging groceries at the local market. Who was sporting diamonds and carrying 'Prada' bags, or who was still struggling to make ends meet.
We all simply had a wonderful time, just getting together with old friends, reminiscing about old times, re-telling old stories, catching up on every ones lives. There was lots of "HUGS" to be had by all! (Yes, the picture above is of me setting in the sun on the deck, during the reunion!)
