♫ ♪ ♫ Oh how the love brings tears to my eyes.. ♫ ♪ ♫ It’s true. My heart is overwhelmed with love for my friends. Inseparable in high school. So many memories that make me smile… and laugh… and cry when I think of them. How can we be so blessed to still be so close! We stay in touch virtually through the year, but we’re trying once a year to all get together and bask in the joy of being together again. It kind of makes whatever else is going on in the world — or our lives — okay because we have each other. I would say that if you had told us back then that we’d be having these weekend slumber parties decades after our life together in high school, we wouldn’t have believed it, but you know what? I think we knew even then that our friendships were eternal, and that time, distance, or separate ways wouldn’t really change the bonds we had. But aaauuuuugh… it is still unbelievable how much crazy FUN we have when the world goes away and we’re still there!
As you can see… nothing like having paradise to celebrate in, right? What a beautiful… BEAUTIFUL… place! Thank you so so SO MUCH, Mary & Tony… and Lynn and Johnny for putting us up. My heart is so full when I am there that sometimes I think it might burst. I remember several times just wanting to express myself about how much fun it was to just be so happy!
There were a few who couldn’t make it this year: Suzanne, Isabella, Kim, Mary & Missy… your faces aren’t in the pictures… but you were most definitely there with us deep within our hearts!
So here… we invite you to vicariously experience our weekend with us. After the slideshow, I included a few other pictures — probably meaningless to anyone but us… but when I look back, I will definitely be warmed by the memories of those photos too.
