On October 11, I turned 29 years old. I am not in full-fledged "last-year-of-my-twenties" mode. It's hard to believe and I still feel 15...some days.
To top that off, my 10-year high school reunion was the same weekend, so I packed my bags and left Charleston, headed straight for Sweet Home Alabama. It was great being home. I wanted to STAY there! I graduated with a small class of about 120 people- IF that. My memory is going in my OLD age!
We had a pretty good turnout. There was about 25 of us throughout the entire weekend. More people would have came but a lot of them are deployed or too far away. We all grew up near an Army Aviation base so a lot of them are "military brats" and joined the service themselves. I think growing up near a military base really helps you branch out and meet new, different people growing up.
I know you don't know ANY of these people in the photos, but enjoy looking at the people I grew up with and know me better than anyone:
We started out at the high school Homecoming game- we saw a few teachers we missed and a couple other 2002 graduates that couldn't make it to the other functions. Afterwards we all hightailed it to a local bar where drinks were drunk and karaoke was sang. Yikes.
Such a fab weekend. I was quite sad to come back to Charleston....."said no one ever." lol- I know, I know...but I miss home and my friends. We were a VERY close class. VERY. We all had our own little groups, but got along with everyone and I am SO thankful for that.
Has anyone had their 10, 20, 30 year class reunions yet??
How were they?
