I received an out of the blue email message the other day from my old friend Sara. Sara and I were friends back in high school. We were in drama together and hung together outside of school as well. We haven’t seen each other in over 10 years, though we did communicate via email for a bit. That’s even fallen off, and I haven’t heard from her in over two years, since she told me she was getting married and I told her we were pregnant with twins!

 

So imagine my surprise when she send me an email the other day. Apparently, she was going through her old email archives and realized that she never replied to me two years ago, so she finally did. Not only that, but she’s been in touch with a least one other friend, Heather, regularly. She proposed that we get together a sort of mini-reunion this summer and we’re currently working out the details.

 

While the ‘old gang’ didn’t all talk to each other directly, each of us, in turn, has been close with a least one other member. So it wasn’t too difficult to get everyone’s email addresses, and start a little mailing. Kinda bizzaro to suddenly be exchanging email with folks you haven’t talked to in so many years, while at the same time, it’s kinda cool to suddenly be talking with them again. So let’s see if Sara, Heather, Kevin, Ray, Jason and I can actually pull this off. Meeting husbands, wives, kids… Old friends, new families… new friends…
