Past, Present and Future

28 Feb

I attended a beautiful wedding in Charleston this weekend. Being “back there” always makes me nostalgic. It reminds me, of course, of a wonderful time in my life. A time of friendship, laughter, love, happiness, and anticipation of so many good things still yet to come.

Perhaps I’m the only one who does things like this, but in the midst of dancing and singing loudly with my best college girlfriends, I had a moment where time seemed to briefly stand still. I looked around at them, and thought about all that we had been through in the past 10 years. Sorority parties, broken hearts, failed classes, fun vacations, wild nights out, boring nights in, the countless times we moved to different apartments (then cities), the serious boyfriends, the graduations, the engagements, the marriages, the baby bumps, the career choices and career changes.
As dumb and as sappy as this sounds, in that moment where I looked around at our group of friends, I felt an enormous amount of pride. 10 years later, there we were: Laughing, loving, sharing in another happy occasion…and anticipating so many good things yet to come.

    I call those moments "movie moments". Glad to know someone else has them too.

    I feel the same way about you, Abs. You know I love you more than my luggage.
