I was really lucky to have a great group of friends while growing up. These photos chronicle 7th (or 8th maybe) through the summer after 12th grade. While we haven’t all kept in the best of touch since we went off to college, there has been a keeping up of sorts, off and on, with most of them. Some of you may recognize Melissa, who’s appeared in a number of blog posts. She and I continue to be great friends.
Even though none of us live close to each other anymore and some of us only stay in touch through Facebook, it’s nice to still have those connections to your childhood. These girls played such an integral part in helping shape who I am today. Great friends have the ability to do that.
