THEN...This picture was taken 10 years ago to the day. The New Years Even of the millenium. From top to bottom and left to right...May, Me, Kalli, Melanie, Bree, Jeni.
Looking back it has been 10 years of twists and turns. In this picture we were juniors in high school. Just starting to think about college...wow. Most of us had probably started to drive and some of us had jobs. I am still friends with 4 of the 5 other girls pctured which is awesome.
May is currently living in New Zealand with her fiance Matt. They both transfwered over there with their job at PwC. I am living in Washougal and working in Camas. Jason and I got married 5 months ago! Kalli is engaged and getting married on July 3rd, 2009. She lives in Seattle not far from Melanie. Melanie got married this past summer. Bree is living and working in Washington D.C. Jeni is the one person in this picture I am no longer friends with though we did meet up a few time this summer at events surrounding Melanie's wedding and from my point of view everything went very smoothly and I actually had a good time. She's also the only one with kids and from the pictures I've seen...they are mighty cute!
Tonight we are off to spend NYE '09 with our friends Robyn and Joe. They are a couple that we get along with so well and though Jason and Joe haven't met but a few times, we all click! Robyn emailed me today about making a time capsule tonight to meet up again and open it in 10 years. Looking back...wow...what a good idea that would have been for the above group to do 10 years ago. I wonder what would have been written...could we have forseen any of what we are currently living?
Life has certainly taken us in seperate paths and directons but we've all ended up today, where wer were meant to be.
Happy New Years 2009!
