you've come a long way baby.
wow, talk about a trip down memory lane. i found this photo from over 10 years ago (back in my raver-ish days) and rather than banish it back to a pile in my desk i decided to scrap it. you can't see very well the photos but i did have a fire engine red streak of hair. this was after a late rave night of staying up til 4am then heading to class at 8 am. the boy in the photo is jeff. he was my best friend in college. jeff sat behind me in high school psychology class and that is how we met. we went to the prom together and suffered through 4 years of college together. we even did our last chemical engineering project together in school.
i can look back at this photo with such fond memories. jeff and i will reconnect once in a while and catch up. there was a point where we drifted apart. it bothered me so much. but now i realize we had to do that. i was moving on in my life and so was he but we were going in different directions.
things are different now. we don't talk and see each other daily like we used to but we are at points in our lives where the conversation, even after a long pause gets easy again. i hope to bring baby noah to meet jeff and his partner very soon. we talk about mortgages, bills, food and getting older (LOL).
but i wouldn't have traded the past me for anything b/c it made me who i am now. and i am so happy to see where jeff is now in his life!
so if you find some photos lying around in a drawer, don't leave them there! do a LO about it! it will look so much better sitting on a page rather than left back in the drawer to be forgotten.
