Flashback Friday

My bloggy/twitter friend Tia does this thing called Flashback Friday and I just love it. She chooses a picture from back in the day, and just talks about it. It is so fun to see older pics of her and her hubby... so I've decided to join in.  If you want to see hers, just click on the Christopher and Tia widget on the left side.  :)

This is me and my best friends at my graduation party. Joie is on the left, I'm in the middle, and her boyfriend (now husband) is on the right.  Number one, can I just say that I was so cute back then, and had no idea?  Does anyone else look back and think about how you thought of yourself, and realize now that you were so cute and just didn't know it? lol

Anyway, on to why I really chose this picture. ;)  Joie is that kind of friend that changes your life forever. I met her when I was in middle school... desperate for attention and having no clue who I was. Her family became my second family.  I camped for the first time with them.  I swam in their pool.  We convinced a girl in 8th grade that we were really twins, but that our parents were divorced, and we lived with separate parents. lol  I introduced her to Kurt, (on the left) and they are married now, with an absolutely adorable perfect little girl. I could count on Kurt and Joie to do pretty much anything for me back then... they were my glue. I'd date some weirdo guy and they still loved me. I broke up with Kurt's best friend, and he still loved me.  (Though I have to admit, Kurt and I loved to butt heads, lol).

When I married Ross I lost contact with alot of my friends.  I was in a different place... married, having kids, and they were all still in school.  Then Kurt and Joie got married, they moved off to California, as Kurt was going to an amazing school out here for acting. (He is amazing).  I lost contact with them for a few years, and it broke my heart.  But every time I would talk to Joie, it seemed like no time had passed. She knows me better than anyone else.  So... thank God for Facebook. :)  And blogs. Because now I can talk to her any time I want... and I get to read her blog. ;)  Some friends really are forever. :)

Isn't it great to have friends like that? I have a friend I've known since the 6th grade and we can go for huge stretches of years...without talking and still, when we talk it's like we've been in touch all along. One of the reasons I adore Facebook is that it has put me back in touch with some awesome people from my past that I'd long ago lost touch with. And the really cool thing is that most of those friendships feel just like they did long ago.

Its so amazing to find a best friend like that. And better yet, to KEEP a best friend like that.

And you were TOTALLY cute :) *still are*

I know how you seems like we graduated high school then spread out to the four corners of the earth! It's good when you can keep contact.
