A Decade Apart

Rachel and I were two peas in a pod as teenage girls. We hung out constantly, donning our hideous 90's wardrobe, and enjoyed being friends in the sticks of Alaska. This picture brings a blast from the past - two skinny girls at junior prom.

After a decade of not seeing each other, I traveled to Utah to visit my old friend. Seeing each other for the first time after ten years was like picking up where we left off. Although so much has changed in our lives, Rachel is the same friend I remember from years past. Here we are in Salt Lake City with her darling daughter, Lucy.

Even comparing these pictures shows that not everything in our lives has changed. Rachel looks the same, and she professes I do as well. The trip was wonderful with lots of laughs about old times, perusing high school year books, viewing home videos at her parents' house, and meeting her husband and daughter. The old saying, "True friendship never dies," is certainly true for us.


  1. Oh my gosh!!! It is so fun to see those pics of you, and hear of your great visit. I would have loved to have been there with you, but for sure we'll have to do it in the future. What a great childhood we had together!

    Can't wait to hear all about your visit!

    Talk to you later....
    Love, Melissa

  2. How fun! I'm SOO glad you're finally's looking great! We miss you lots!
