Sunday Citar - Reunion

"A friend is one who knows you and loves you just the same. "  ~ Elbert Hubbard

3 weeks ago I went to my 20th high school reunion.  
I had debated about going.  
You see, I didn't know that many people.
I had only gone to school there for 1 year....my senior year.  (long story for another post)
The whole idea seemed silly because of that.....
Then my friend Julie called and she said she was going....

Girls night out sounded like a wonderful plan! And it was...
I met Julie my senior year and we still are good friends.  She has popped up here and there on my blog and we go to scrap and spa together every year.

Funny story on how we met.  Julie sat behind me in homeroom.  I knew NO-ONE.  One day a few weeks into school, I turned around and said, "Hi, my name is Melanie and I am in a good mood today!"  Yep, I was am weird.  All Julie could say was "that's nice, I have another friend named Melanie".

Then I met Melanie & I became really great friends.  We shared a locker through most of our senior year.  (she is the one in the middle below)....
Then we all graduated and went off to college.  When we were at college Julie & I wrote letters back and forth all the time.  Yep, back in the day, you didn't text or skype you wrote letters or called.  Calling was long distance and expensive.

I ended up moving back this way to go to another college and stayed.  While I see Julie more often than Melanie & Kelly, it was nice for all of us to go out together!
There were so many funny things that happened...

One of the best was when people looked at me and then my name tag...it was funny to see the look of confusion come over people.  It was so much fun reassuring people that they didn't know me and that was ok. ;)  They were not hurting my feelings one bit.  A new girl in a class of about 250ppl...it was very understandable.

I do have to say though there were quite a few people I knew & remembered me.  More than I thought I would.
 I am so glad I went!  :)
