Today during lunch I did a quick check of my personal email and there appeared to be an explosion in my inbox. Many were Facebook notifications… I noticed a comment that said, “You look like you were 12” and then I see I was tagged in a photo by a friend from college.
Whenever I see a #TBT or #Flashback I get a little worried and think Oh no! My worlds are colliding! Since I have limited Facebook access and I don’t have a lot of time I did a quick check and found a picture that brought a smile to my face.
My friend Nick and I dressed and ready to go the Boat Club Dance during our semester at St. John’s College in York, England. Yikes! This was a long time ago!
I moved on with my day… had an after school event and work to do. A social media check later in the day revealed another gem from the archives.
Another photo from my semester in England with fellow students from Keene State College. This time I had a chance to pause and think about these pictures. This is a time in my life I will always treasure. It was the adventure of a life time… traveling around England and Europe. Developing friendships with both British and American students.
Now that my children are reaching college age… How did that even happen? I am encouraging them to jump at these opportunities… I know how much they will grow from the experience. Plus, selfishly, I will go and pay them a visit.
