Girls reunion 2017

My college roommates and I got together for a reunion weekend last week. We have been fairly lucky to have semi-regular get togethers for big events like the early W&M Homecoming years, a few mini- and full-reunions (here, here, and here), and, of course, weddings (in 2008 [ours], 2010, 2011, 2013, and 2013). While there are still a few weddings to come, we have started planning more intentional reunions. The last time we were all together was in 2015. This year we decided our time was too short to bring families like we did last time, so we all left everyone at home and just the girls got together. Our time was short but oh, so sweet. We rented a house with a pool, so people jumped in as we got arrived Friday afternoon and evening. Maggie's husband Dave had made us a delicious lasagna for dinner on Friday night, and it was amazing and so nice not to have to cook! We all sat around sharing our most recent life updates and spent our evenings on the back porch enjoying each others' company, wine, and ice cream. Saturday we spent the entire day in the pool before heading out to dinner. Sunday we had a leisurely breakfast while we packed up and had a brief lunch together before everyone hit the road (either driving or to the airport). We've already talked about trying to do this every year, so here's to this happening again in 2018!

Great to see everyone!!
