Growing up in a tiny town meant that I graduated high school with a very small class of 21. I cared deeply for these folks and even now I am grateful for their part in making me who I am today. I'm very thankful for social media allowing me to keep up with what my old classmates are up to, and I was ecstatic when it allowed one to reach out to me to take her family portraits on a recent trip back home.
Nikki was and is cheerful and fun. I had a great time catching up with her and spending time with her family. Although I do begrudge her for not looking a day older than when we graduated 16 years ago. ;)
Nikki, thanks so much for reaching out to me and tromping through the mud on a chilly overcast day! I hope to catch up again soon.
