On New Year’s Eve I had lunch with my childhood best friend, Tara Bench. I look at Sydney, who’s five, and think about how silly and goofy she is. Well, that is the same age that Tara and I were when we lived in Saudi Arabia and played dress-up, hide and go seek, house, and did all sorts of other cute and silly things! We met up again at BYU and were in the same dorm together. We met Cheryl who now lives in Houston. And Tara’s brother Landon also lives in Houston. I guess Houston is the place to be!
Tara was down visiting for Christmas, so we decided it would be fun to meet up for brunch. Cheryl was free too, so we all met at Le Peep for brunch. It was SO much fun seeing them both! I cannot believe how much has changed and how much has stayed the same. I’m still that silly and goofy, and somewhat insecure, person I was in college, but I’m 20 years older. I sure hope I do not look 20 years older. In college I remember thinking that 26 was so old. I once had a guy ask me on a date who was 30!!! No way!! I remember thinking 30 was practically old man material. How could I even relate to him?? And now I’m ten years older than that (okay, well 9.9 when the photo was taken). But, it was so much fun to reconnect. I felt like we could have been back Provo having lunch right around the corner from the dorms.
