BLAST FROM THE PAST!

I love Facebook! I have connected with SO MANY people that go way back as far as Elementary school, and that's a long time ago..lol! It has been interesting to see what these people have been up to for the last 20 years! And the great thing is that you don't even have to see them in person to catch up! All their business is right on Facebook!

I reconnected with a friend of mine who I've known since 2nd grade. We went to elementary, middle, and high school together. I was so excited catch up with her! She lives about two hours north from me, so the chances of her and I getting together for dinner or coffee are pretty slim. Fortunately, she still has friends and family that she sees in my area. Today was one of those days, so I finally got to see her again after 20+ years, plus meet her beautiful family! I felt like I already knew them since I see pictures of them all the time on Facebook! They were only able to stay for a couple of hours since they were on a their way to another get together with their other friends. It's neat because she is still the same as I remember her back then!!

How fun that you were able to reconnect with an old friend. I just joined Facebook and it is kind of fun to see what people I went to high school with look like now and see their kids.

Sniff, sniff. How sweet. I miss my friends so much! I just moved to GA and I only have one friend here. People keep telling me to get on facebook, but I'm resisting because I already have too many other online obsessions.

HOW NEAT!!!!! Who would have ever imagined that a friend from second grade was just a mere two hours aways from you. What a trip! Maybe I need to get on Facebook more to look up some old friends! WOW! I loved this!
