This past weekend, my fellow classmates and I celebrated our ten year reunion. It was a weekend long affair that started with a delta style cocktail party. We enjoyed finger foods, sipped on cocktails and reminisced about all sorts of stuff. It was so great to see all of those faces. Some I see on a regular basis and others I literally haven't seen in years. Others I was meeting for the first time, Spouses and significant others.We followed this up with a little shindig at our local bar.
On Saturday morning, we all met up at our high school for a little tour to see just what all has changed over these last 10 years. We enjoyed a luncheon in our old cafeteria (not cafeteria food thankfully...) followed by a grand tour. I, having a little sister who just graduated, was familiar with many of the changes but I had most definitely not walked those halls since that last day of high school. My favorite part about this was watching everyone with their children, some with brand new babies and others with two or three little munchkins running wild. The sweetest was all of those boys showing off their little ones. Melt my heart.
Later that night, after everyone rested up for round two (keep in mind we are old), we had a "high school house party" at one of the houses we partied at most in high school. There was a country band (our wedding band), a pool, some local bar b q, beer and a massive amount of mosquitoes. All of the ingredients of a perfect night in the Mississippi delta. We all sat in lawn chairs around the pool and enjoyed the music while catching up with some folks that we didn't get to catch up with the night before. It was hilarious. It was perfect.
Here's to the next ten!!!
He fills my life with good things.
