Hometown friends


There is nothing like home town friends, people that you grew up with, that know you better than anyone else and still love you.


As I sit at this airport yet again waiting to board a plane to go home, I cant help but think of this.

This weekend will be having a home town reunion, including a concert, rafting, hiking, dancing and old school reunion party at our favorite park.


See I come from a small town and it was

different than any other small town, we were tight, we were raised opened minded, we took care of each other and still do. So l am always excited to see friends that knew all my secrets and still like me.


When we see each other it’s as if no time has went by at all, we are back in the home town groove in no time.


There is nothing like friends you grew up with, you can talk about things you never have to explain, like

“The well” others would ask “Did you drink from it? Is it on your property? What is it?”


We all know, it was an old well we use to hang out and party at. Or “I’ll meet you at the launch” Anyone else would say “What launch? Kennedy space center” or when we say Swinging bridge “Is that a bridge? Does it swing??”


No, it’s the boat launch at the lake, swinging bridge was the lake, but we have no need to explain, we get it.


We remember you with hair, braces and acne. We remember your first love, we knew how strict your parents were and who’s house we could hang out, these are the things that keep us bonded to each other.


There are a close group of friends who are now like family to me and yes, I know I go home a lot…it’s part of my soul, the mountains, the air, the rivers and lakes, the people…

So it will be five days of “the big chill” style, where we will be in sync with each other again and realize how very blessed we were to grow up in this small town with such wonderful small town people and even if we are scattered across the country we will always be connected by growing up here.


So yes, I am going home again…to laugh about past memories and to make new memories with the people who know me best.


Today my friends remember what is truly important in your life, it’s family, friends and living in the moment, knowing how blessed you are and being grateful for all of that and all of the wonderful people who make your life, this amazing journey that it is.
