It’s Been 10 Years…

…since I finished middle school!

Last week my friend Nicole organized a Griffin Middle School girls get together. She sent out some invites via Facebook and before we knew it those who could make it were laughing, catching up, and sipping margaritas (or beer or coke or water in my case!).

We figured out that we started high school in 2001, meaning it’s been TEN YEARS since middle school.


Anywho, we went to El Jalisco’s for dinner and had such a good time! We were at our table for about 3 hours, and then some friends departed while others (myself included) stayed behind in the parking lot for another hour or so continuing to chat. I regularly talk to/keep up with a few of the girls, but the others I haven’t seen or talked to in a long time. The plan is to keep this up and try to do it once a month. It is so neat to see these girls, well I guess we are women now, most of which I’ve known even since elementary school that are now married, not-married, have kids, don’t have kids, new jobs, old jobs…so much life going on. I loved catching up with everyone and can’t wait to keep up this new tradition! Thanks Nicole for taking charge!!


{Joelle and I. I’ve known this her since elementary school. Been way too long but so good to see her!}


This looks like the trouble-making side of the table;)

PS- Thank you girls again for all your love and support about the conversations we had Thursday, it was SO very appreciated!

PPS- There was some tattoo talk going on. At one point I playfully suggested we go after dinner to get inked! I am really having tattoo fever again here lately. I guess the idea of “one chapter ending” has really made me want to get one. It’s the closest I’ve been so far to really thinking about going through with it. To mark the time in my life where I became “a little bit stronger” as cheesy as that sounds.

Lots of goodies to post coming up :)
