R Is For Reunion

Suddenly, and I honestly don't know how this happened, our 20th reunion is looming.  Facebook is blowing up with plans and today I got the official invitation.

I'll be attending for sure, with my cute high school sweetheart who has only gotten cuter with the years, but what I can't figure out is, how is it 20 years already?

It feels like we just did our 10 year one.....

For our 10th, my husband and I showed off the most adorable picture of our two little kids, with their arms around each other, grinning with pure happiness.  I asked the kids if they'd be willing to recreate that picture.

I'm sure no one will be shocked that they politely, but firmly, declined!

No worries.  I haven't told them yet, but they will be coming to the family picnic portion of the weekend.  We'll still get to show them off!

    1. That's what I'm hoping! Ten was fun, but we were all so young still!

    Hey, I went to my 50th (!!!!!) reunion last year. And all I can say is I feel so lucky to have lived this long. Only 2/3 of us did.

    1. At our 10th, we had several remembrances for classmates who'd passed away. I'm hoping we haven't added to many more....

    1. Thanks! I'm pretty excited because we are having it in our hometown, and my husband and I can actually walk to it. I'm all about easy travel!

  5. One of the side effects of moving around so much was that I went to three different high schools. That puts me in a weird place reunion-wise. I'm only on the official alumni list for the school I graduated from--but I only went to that school for the last five months of senior year. It's sort of sad, I guess, but it lets me off the hook of having to decide whether or not to go to any of them. I've either stayed it touch or reconnected (Facebook!) with most of the people I would want to see anyway.

    Sounds like it will be a good time for you guys and I'm sure everyone finds it adorable that you are still together. (Cuz it is TOTALLY adorable!)

    1. I moved back to our hometown at the start of freshman year. I was lucky enough to stay all four years! And since I still live here, I see quite a few of our classmates....
