Tomorrow I am leaving for my ten year college reunion. Ten years ago last May, I walked across the stage at Furman University and received my diploma, ready and eager to take on the world.
I left my closest friends, the only life I’d known for four years and came home to Raleigh – to my mom, to my then boyfriend (now husband) and to the unknown. I was excited and terrified all at the same time.
I’m looking forward to walking back onto that beautiful campus. I’m eager to show my son the lake, the mall, and to take him to his first football game ever (Go Paladins!). I’m anxious to see old friends, to hug those dearest to my memories and squeeze on their children.
Ten years. So much has changed; yet so much of me is still the same.
