What a weekend! Phew!!!! This has been a memorable weekend, indeed! We arrived in San Jose, California on Thursday night. The journey was uneventful. I couldn't believe that we didn't have one late flight or lose our luggage! LOL! (Knock on wood!) Friday, the family spent much of the morning just putzing around. I got my hair cut, Lucas got his hair cut; and around 4:00PM, we met with the rest of Sean's family at Dave and Buster's for a joint Sean-Lucas birthday party. Later in the evening, Sean and I left the birthday party to attend a pre-reunion party with classmates who we hadn't seen in 20-years. So, our high school reunion-weekend began!
Saturday, I took some "me" time for myself and went to the Original Rubber Stamp Convention, hosted by A Stamp in the Hand. It was so much fun!!!! Here is picture of me and Leavenworth Jackson, at her booth:
And, here is a picture of the stash I bought yesterday. Many of these stamps are going to several Shackies from the Stamp Shack. Not going to say which ones...... That's a surprise!!
Now, onto our 20 year reunion. OMG! It was such an emotional night. I laughed, I cried. Yes...I cried! I got so emotional from seeing friends who I haven't had contact with for 20-years, I started crying. I LOVED every minute of our reunion. Many folks didn't know Sean and I got married (Sean and I graduated from the same class, but didn't date in high school). It was just an incredible evening. I found out one of my friends had lived in Nicaragua right after graduating from UC Berkeley. She helped to open schools there. Now, she lives in Costa Rica, doing the same line of work. Just incredible stuff! Another friend traveled to Japan, and taught English in Tokyo for two years. Then, she traveled to West Africa, where she met her future husband. Some friends moved to the Seattle area. Another friend is a professor at NYU, teaching dance. He and I were on the same dance team in high school, and he ended up going to Julliard. I solidified old friendships, even though I was pretty bad about keeping in touch. I met people I didn't even know in high school. It was just an incredible, indescribable, wonderful evening that I'll treasure forever! Here is a picture of me and Sean:
And here is a picture of me with my dear friend, and maid-of-honor, Mary. She was a classmate of ours also:
