Kevin and I trekked to Indianapolis this past weekend to attend my Center Grove High School 10-year reunion. (Crazy that it’s been a decade already!) Since my parents don’t live in Indy anymore (we moved back to Atlanta — where I was born and lived until I was 11 — the summer after I graduated from high school), I rarely get to see my high school friends, so that was the main reason we made the trip.
- Getting to meet my wonderful friend Mal’s new fiance, James (they’ll get married this September!) and staying at Mal’s beautiful house.
- Spending Saturday morning in Zionsville, Indiana, where Kevin lived when he was in elementary school. (His parents live in the Atlanta area now, too. Small world, huh?)
- Hanging out with my awesome friend Staci, her equally awesome husband, Alex, and their incredibly adorable (and well-behaved!) 6-month-old daughter, Selah.
- Consuming lots of delicious sweet stuff, including a yummy almond cupcake from The Flying Cupcake’s food truck and a scoop of the BEST frozen custard of all time — Ritter’s!
- Saying hello to my old house on Fox Moor Place (it still looks the same!).
- Attending my reunion, and catching up with even more sweet friends (plus having Kevin there, too).
- Having breakfast on Sunday with my high school friend Megan Martin, who I haven’t seen in years and years. (That makes us sound really old. It’s been forever, though!)
- Listening to two books on tape (one on the trip to Indy and the other on our drive home to North Carolina) that we LOVED and that I highly recommend: The Perks of Being a Wallflower (by Stephen Chbosky) and The Fault in Our Stars (by John Green). Both are adolescent fiction books and both were completely wonderful (and well read, if you’re into audio books). Now we can’t wait to see the recently(ish) released movie version of The Perks of Being A Wallflower.
All in all, a pretty excellent weekend (and trip down memory lane). Anyone else have fun high school reunion experiences?
