It is unbelievable how quickly 29 years passed. It feels like it was just yesterday we were preparing for our graduation ceremony at Villanova Univesity. In lieu of waiting until for our officially 29 years since graduating in June, we planned a reunion with a girls night out at Painting with a Twist. Everyone had to bring a dish and their favorite bottle.
This was my first time at Painting with a Twist and I assume having wine definitely alters or improves your artistic ability. It was great to reconnect and it felt like high school on FAST FORWARD. The only difference is our conversation has evolved to real life marriage, children, and parenting. It was definitely a sanity check for me as I am challenged with raising a teen. No matter how many years were missing we connected like it was yesterday.
What I realized after 29 years is that we all share a common thread – being MOTHERS. It was so much fun to connect on the challenges of raising children. I realized as mothers we all have similar experiences in parenting. In 1987, our conversation was filled with plans for our futures now as we fast forward to 2016 our lives have evolved over so many chapters. I believe going to all girls high school created lasting friendships. When we meet after some many years it is easy to pick up where we are today. I’m looking forward to celebrating our 30th REUNION.
We are now committed to a meetup every quarter. See you in June!!
