reunited and it feels so good

Twelve years ago, I made one of the best decisions of my life.  Out of the three high schools I had applied to and gotten into (Holy Child, Good Counsel and Stone Ridge), I made the decision to go to Holy Child.  Honestly, I can't believe it has been that long since I made that decision.  It was at Holy Child that I met some of the most incredible, smart and talented women ever.  I am very lucky to say that many of those ladies are still in my life.

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to have dinner with one of them, Beth.  As dinner was coming to an end, Beth and I talked about how we didn't want to wait until our 10 year reunion to get everyone together again.  Beth decided it should be my job to get everyone together.  I happily agreed and took on the task of coordinating such an event.  The idea was very well received by our fellow holy children and sure enough, plans were made to have an 8 year reunion at McGinty's in Silver Spring.  This past weekend, the reunion occurred and I was reunited with some of the most interesting people in the world - alumni from Holy Child's class of 2004.

Here are some pictures of the event:

In closing I will say this: "you may journey far and yonder til the end of nowhere starts, but however far you wander it will echo in your heart. Til the last gray shades are falling and life's long journey's through, you'll hear the Holy Child spirit calling 'cross the world to you." To the beautiful, talented, wonderful women of the class of 2004 - it still echos.
