BIG DAY in Laurie-land!!! Or should I say Laura-land (Not many people know that is my real first name but it's on my Senior picture so it must be true!) Tonight is my 40th high school reunion and I get to hang with peeps who knew me when I was a young pup. Before I even knew me!!! LOL!!!
I always get excited to see old friends and hear about their lives. And after 40 years, there's been a lot of life going on! My class has been great about doing reunions every 5 years but I missed our last one so I haven't seen many of them for 10 years or longer.
I was lying in bed this morning thinking about how my life has changed more in the past 10 years than it did in the previous 30 years...
- I got separated then divorced 😞 - I lost my father 👼 - I remarried 👰 - I moved twice 🚚🏠 - I gained a wonderful new family 👏 - I relocated to a new town 🏘 - I gained 2 sons-in-laws 👬 - I became a grandma 👶👶 - I got in the best shape of my life 💪 - I changed careers 🏋 - I got my eyebrows tattooed 🖌
Gosh!!! There's probably even more if I thought longer about it!
But regardless of how many changes I can enumerate on a list, it's the changes on the inside that have been the biggest and most profound.
Looking forward to seeing my fellow Saxons and to the next 10 years which officially begin tomorrow!!!
