This past weekend, I went home for a quick trip home (I was in Boulder 27 hours total) for my 20 year high school reunion.
I have strong feelings about attending reunions. Honestly, I cannot stand when people disparage reunions and choose not to go. I have never, even when I felt that way internally, regretted attending a reunion of some sort. There are always people there I was glad to see and friendships reformed--often with people I would not have expected. (And I have attended high school, mission, and study abroad reunions.)
That said, I can say I loved my high school years and I was very excited to attend. It was a great reunion. The people who put it together did an excellent job. Having done a ton of the work for my husband's 20 year reunion, I completely understood how hard it is to put together a reunion and I so appreciate those willing to do it. (I did have a small part in working on this one but because I was out of state, most of the legwork was done by others.)
Sadly, this is the only picture that I had taken that night. (Taken by my sister just as we were leaving.) But it is good picture and I am glad I have one to document the occasion. Go FHS Class of 1991!
