Class of '98

Well, that was me 10 years ago.  What a change... in everything... since then.

My reunion was a couple weeks ago.  I had fun preparing.  I went shopping for what felt like the first time in my adult life.  I have decided that I really like Ann Taylor and Anne Taylor Loft.  Their clothes are simple but stylish and fit me well.  I digress.

The reunion was fun.  Somehow it was more like high school than I even expected.  But with beer.  And this leads me to my biggest complaint about the night: the ticket price assumed you would be getting a little tipsy.  That aside, the meal was great and I enjoyed reconnecting with friends.  I am very impressed with and inspired by many of their lives.  One of my best HS friends is a pediatric dentist with some strong conservative ideas.  Another just had her first baby.  Her enthusiasm over this blessing has been enough to convince another good friend that it's time for her to take the placenta plunge.  Everyone seems to have goals and motivations and exciting places that they are purposefully going with their lives.

See y'all in ten.  Hopefully sooner.

Elke you were such a beautiful graduate! It doesn't look like you've changed one bit! That must have been so much fun to see all your old friends. I can't wait to see you either! Love you,
