we were recently running through a list of life experiences, travels, and insanity we’ve shared…
same private school for 8 years and tiny graduating class of 58 students.
my hobo-costumed rollerskating birthday party in 5th grade.
an en vogue/r. kelly concert in highschool. (whaaa…?)
an impromptu baseball game on a beach in california.
a random frisbee game on the berkley campus.
a cross country drive to new mexico.
spending the night at julia roberts’ house (yes, the.)
countless bridemaid events at multiple friend’s weddings.
countless baby shower events for said friends.
a cross country drive to florida.
too many hurricanes and muffalettas in new orleans.
lots of chicken salad eaten, prop closet drooled over and bad movies watched in birmingham.
atlanta. i don’t even remember.
trips to florida and nashville to visit our third limb.
running through castle gardens in germany.
breaking into golf club showers, gorging on high tea and tiki bar fare in hawaii.
squeezing in leicester square and pret a manger in london.
sleeping in the serengeti, watching lions play, staring at kilimanjaro and roughing it through tanzania.
a vodka-fueled weekend in snow in a cabin-full of russians in new york.
another crazy russian-style weekend in boston.
babies and birthday parties in charlottesville and dc.
birthdays and spas at the homestead.
and just last week, entertaining our 5 kiddos in upstate new york and hauling them to niagara falls.
this list hardly begins to complete the list of our times together. these are merely the highlights that stick out the brightest. but in this life of moves, changes, new friends, and lots of transition i am always grateful for the people in my life that will always remain. carrie is one of those. like a tether to the center as everything else whirls around. it was fun running through this list with her, remembering all we had done and reminding each other of things we’d almost forgotten. amazing how much of the globe we’ve covered together…
now our kids get to be friends. another generation of fun. and i can’t wait to see where the next 30 years takes us!
