Long, lost friends!

Last Saturday I had the greatest treat!

I was able to spend a 3-hour breakfast (literally 3 hours!) with a long, lost friend. My dear friend, Laura, and I went to high school together, were on the Cheerleading squad, waited tables together, and doubled dated, not to mention spent lots of nights up late talking over the ups and downs of our teen lives. Some how, though, 20 years ago we just lost touch and drifted apart. You can’t imagine how excited I was to get an email from her via It was even more amazing to realize that even though I have moved all over in the course of the last 20 years, she and I live on ½ hour apart. She has 3 children – I have 3 children…both of us with 2 boys and 1 girl. Our girls are the same age and they are both Cheerleaders (at different schools). Her husband works about a mile from where mine works. It feels like a parallel universe in so many ways.

I was blessed by the time that she and I spent and hope it is just the 1st of many wonderful times and I can’t wait for our families to meet. She knows my dear husband as he was the boyfriend I had back in high school but I am excited to meet her husband soon!

Oh, and she looks just like she did in high school --- THAT just isn’t fair! LOL


  1. You don't look too far outta high school, yourself!

    So glad ya'll reconnected. I have done that recently with some college buds.

  2. That's wonderful! I'm glad you had such a great time reconnecting again. Sounds like the 20 years just disappeared between the two of you.

  3. That is like a parallel universe thing!

  4. What an amazing coincidence! This is the beginning of a whole new chapter in your friendship. Those old friendships are truly solid gold! I am so happy for you both!!

  5. I love that! And I agree. You *don't* look very far outta high school yourself!

    It's so nice to "meet" you!

  6. How fun is that! You must have been able to talk for hours!
    Love the picture!!

  7. How amazing is that!! Fun for you!!

  8. That is really neat! I had a friend in college who called me last summer from England. She now lives there and has married an English military officer. She was coming to the states and she had supper with us and met my kids. It was great!

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm glad you enjoyed the holiday theme - I did it myself. I had the dinner party on Friday night and had a great time. I'm in Georgia, too!
