Bookends


Tower of London, 1999

I've been going round and round in my head lately, thinking about my upcoming marriage, the way relationships evolve, the parts of the past you take into your future, how you can pick some friendships right back up where you left off, but other relationships seem to fall apart while you're trying to maintain that connection.

This past weekend I had 36 fantastic hours with College Roomate Jo. Our visit not only reminded me how much she means to me but also that I'm same person I've always been.



And that's okay.

Roosevelt Monument, 2008

EDITED TO ADD: More of the photos from our weekend in DC are here.

Is that you in the top picture on the right??!!??!! You're so much more of a gorgeous woman now, it's unreal!

Wow. Way to make a girl feel pretty. ;)

I'm definitely making a weird face in the first one, and I had a Meg Ryan-ish fin de millenium haircut that wasn't at its best unless it had been tamed by a hairdryer, which it wasn't that day. It's funny, I was looking at the photos from that time thinking about the weight I've gained.

We women are so cruel to ourselves. You look amazing now. You were cute then, but like little sister cute :) Now you're a twenty-something beautiful woman.

Oh, this makes me heartsick for London and college days. I miss the two of you. Such great photos. :)

Aw, Jilly. I was just thinking the exact same thing after reading Nikki's livejournal entry about walking the dog in the snow and coming back home to find you had cookies in the oven. :)
