LHS class of 1993 20 Year Class Reunion

Looking back over the festivities of my 20 year class reunion brings a lot of thoughts and emotions to the surface. Seeing everyone was surreal! Many people I have kept in touch with and remained close friends with. Others, I had not seen in 20 years and connected with for the first time! How did we not hang out in school?......... I wondered. I am  thankful for relationships maintained and those that are just beginning.

Preparing for this reunion involved many meetings, emails, texts, phone calls, google searches, and SO much more. A lot of time and effort went into the process of planning the festivities. I truly enjoyed our meetings and getting to know those that I did not from high school better.  We had a ton of laughs and fun pulling this event together. We met for over a year searching for classmates, brainstorming, planning, organizing, and publicizing, and finalizing every last detail. 

There are many  things you can put a price tag on......2 tickets to the 20 year reunion $100,  Chicos black maxi dress $99, Earth sandals $0.04, pedicure $40, new earrings and that cute bracelet $9.99. 

However, the most important ones are the ones that money cannot buy..........having your best friends help you shop and look your best, the sales clerk at Chicos ringing up your entire purchase 50 percent off, your husband spending Father's Day weekend at your class reunion with not one complaint, creating new memories while reliving past ones, seeing old friends and creating new relationships, watching classmates smile, catch up with one another, and enjoy that is PRICELESS
