460: a decade or so ago


In the top photograph, I am second from the right; in the second, I am on the far left. My friend Nikki (in the top, she is second from the left; in the bottom, she is second from the right) sent these along a little bit ago, which made me smile whilst on campus, shuffling through final grading tidbits and debating when I'd finally be able to focus on my own essay. These images are from that sweet time before we fully understood what it meant to be on our own, that cusp between sheltered and sheltering. It's nice to look back, especially when so many of these people are still so very important to me now, despite all those tectonic shifts, and we've continued to become who we are going to become. Thank you, Nikki, for this little glimpse.

Why do I look like a giant in that first photo? I really look twice as tall as you ladies...what a blast from the past. So glad those days are over! :)

Ha, it's because you were sitting on the edge of the bed and closer to the camera! :)

They were exhausting days... nice to look back, nice to continue on! xo

Well, in the first one, at least, we were pretty tipsy! :) That adds to the "giddy." But yes, so fun; I'm so ooooooold.
