Where Have the Past 10 Years Gone?
It feels like just a few weeks ago this group and I were standing in the SunDome, dressed in our red, black and white graduation caps and gowns. Waiting to hear the processional song to carry us into the flashing lights of cameras and adoring parents, sitting anxiously through all the speeches we would never remember. Waiting to hear our names and walk across the stage to shake the hand of the man handing out diplomas, waiting to toss our caps into the air and celebrate that we'd done it. We finally graduated high school.
But, it wasn't just a few weeks ago. It was 10 years ago, and we all got to see each other again this weekend at the 10-year reunion of our East Valley High School class at Bale Breaker. Honestly, It was an overwhelming amount of emotions leading up to pulling into Bale Breaker -- did I 100% want to go? Nope, I even thought about turning around and leaving. Am I glad I went? 110%.
Once I was there and chatting with everyone, the memories came flooding back as quickly as the IPAs were flowing.
I would have to say one of my favorite parts was being able to take a picture with the folks I graduated with -- who I also went to first grade with!
