One of the best things about graduating from a rural school with a class of only 57 people,
is getting together 20 years later with friends you've known since kindergarten...
Birthday Party, 1978
...telling stories, laughing til your belly hurts...
Me, Eric & my sister Amy
...reconnecting with the BFF you swore you'd never lose contact with,
but it happened anyway...

Me & Heather, 1992
...and the friend you've known since first grade
that you later lived with for three years in college...

Me, my sister Amy & Leslie
...marveling how you eventually ended up living in another state,
only 19 miles from the very first friend you ever had...

My sister Amy, Janelle & Me
...how you've gone back to wearing your hair the same length it was in your senior picture.

And realizing it's true what they say...

...even though you didn't always think so at the time,
those were, indeed, some of the best days of your life.


  1. I'm loving the acid washed jacket! You are so lucky to have grown up in the same place with many of the same people. My Dad was in the military and even though we have a super close family, we missed out on all those friends-since-Kindergarten friendships. I think they are priceless and so good for the soul. I am so thankful I have been able to keep my kiddos in the same place! Thanks for sharing your sweet photos.

  2. Lots of good memories seeing those pictures. Can't believe it's been 20 years since you graduated from high school.
