Throwback High School Edition + A GIVEAWAY

Well, it has been 5 years since I graduated High School at St. David's School in Raleigh, NC. It was a fantastic school and I wish I had stayed closer with some of my high school friends after we graduated. You always say at graduation "Oh we will always be friends!" but the truth is that is never the case - some of my best friends 5 years ago are just people that I see on Facebook or see out in Raleigh but don't really keep up with on a constant basis. There are 4 girls that I talk to on about a daily/weekly basis that I have remained best friends with since high school..but only 2 of them went to my high school. These 4 girls will be standing beside me on my big day on November 21, 2015 - Leslie, Paige, Chelsea and Rachel (Leslie and Chelsea went to my high school).

I have changed a lot since I graduated high school. I am more independent, more confident and less physically active(I'm working on that!) but I have maintained to stay true to who I am and haven't changed my personality or the person I strive to be since high school. This weekend we will all come together for our 5 year High School reunion - should be a fun little get together and bring back some good memories!

Let's go back in time and look at some of the old school days.

This was in 2008 when the NYG won the Superbowl, Chelsea and Paige are NYG fanatics so they had a big superbowl party at their house. Now unfortunately most of the people in this picture are from the graduating class of 2008 but there are a few in there from my class of 2009.

Aw yeah it's always hard to keep up with high school people! I don't have a facebook (I know) and so it's even harder! We just had our 10 year high school reunion and it was so fun to reconnect with all of those people!
