It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was high school, and if you are anything like me, your wardrobe consisted of too much animal print, shrunken graphic tees, and heavy eyeliner. I was (and am!) a classy broad, so my suburban Midwest fashion sense was knocking it out of park in the early 2000’s. In all seriousness, most of those pieces (I’d struggle to say any of that was ever trend) have been long tossed away. But every now and then, it’s fun to remember and even bring back some of the less terrible items in small doses. For this week’s Throwback Thursday, I dedicated an entire Polyvore set to the years 2003-2007. Long live the memories, but may the fashion statements (for the most part) rest in peace.
As per Monday’s post, I’ve been in training for my new job in the city this week. I’m having a great time, learning a ton and the hours are absolute BLISS; but emotionally/mentally/physically, I’m a little drained. So I’m going to lazily revert to the Instagram’s most prevalent default series for the fourth day of the workweek: Throwback Thursday.
The seasonal chill to the air has got me missing Ohio (and porch weather…and my alma mater UD) more than usual. Here’s a throwback picture of a few of my favorite people, at one of the greatest places in the world, a few (maybe more than a few) years ago. How I long for a chance to relive one of these summer adventures with these amazing girls whom I’ve known since childhood. *Cue the intro to Kenny Chesney’s “I Go Back”*
Regardless if our paths will ever allow us to be as crazy and infallible as we were that summer, I’m so thankful that you both still have such an active presence in my life. If two decades and three states can’t break up our friendship, I’m thinking we’re in this thing for life. Miss you both to the moon (or ya know, to Cle and Indy) and back.
