I'm going to be honest...
I haven't kept in touch with a lot of the people I went to high school with in Arkansas.
In case you don't know, I moved my 10th grade year from Louisiana up to Arkansas.
So, I was the newbie in town and while I had friends and a crowd I ran around with, all I could ever think about was moving back to Louisiana and being with all my best friends there.
I did just that after high school graduation.
I left 2-months later to go to Louisiana State University and never looked back.
Granted, I visited because Hot Springs is literally where all my extended family lives as did my parents for quite some time, but I didn't make an effort to keep in touch with friends from Lake Hamilton High School.
(high school homecoming my junior year)
.........Then Facebook was invented........
And, 19-years later I find myself having lunch with one of those old friends.
I literally haven't seen Nancy since graduation day but when I saw her FB post about being in Charlotte I knew it was destiny!
Nancy and I are one of the few people in our high school class that left Hot Springs and never moved back.
Not to mention, one of the few people who don't currently have children graduating from high school either!!
Nancy lives in Orange County, CA and has been working in television just like me for the last 10-years!
So fun to catch up and hear about each others lives as adults!
I told her next time I'm in Cali for work I'm looking her up!
(BTW - in the picture at the top Nancy is the 4th one from the left on the back row and I'm sure you find me in the second row)
