What I was doing....

Sorry it's taken a few days for me to complete this. I was looking for an old picture from 20 years ago and it was hard to find. Anyway, here goes nothing!

20 years ago

1. I was 14 years old and had just got my first pair of glasses (The big bug eye kind popular in the 80's)
2. I was in the 8th grade and had the BIGGEST crush on a guy named Jason ( A boy who turned out to be not as cool as I thought he was)
3. I was rocking permed hair with poofy bangs, big glasses and tapered acid wash jeans.

10 years ago
1. I married my best friend
2. Was getting used to my life as a wife and new step-mom
3. Found out that the company that Scott and I worked for was closing and we would both have to find new jobs.

5 years ago
1. I was struggling with infertility and trying to decide to move forward or stop fertility treatments
2. Started a new job with Sorenson Genomics doing something I had never done before.
3. Discovered my passion with photography

It is hard to believe I remember you in the eighth grade and that I have known/been your friend for twenty years now. I loved talking to you on the phone the other day. I am so excited to see you in August. I can't wait to meeet Maggie. Chris and I are so excited and happy for you guys. It seems just like yesterday when we were at your reception. What a great party and what an awesome location.
