It’s been less than 24 hours since last night’s reunion, and my mind’s still spinning over the whole experience. To see the people we grew up with, in some cases since elementary school, together in a room after a ten year absence . . . all I can say is wow, unbelievable. I literally felt like I traveled back in time.
A huge THANK YOU to everybody who came; whether you showed up early for dinner or in the wee hours of the night, it was really you guys who made this reunion special.
More post-reunion wrap-ups to come. In the meantime, post your experience at the reunion, whether it was awesome or awkward, let’s hear about it. Also I’d love to hear a reportback on the after-party at Gallagher’s. Thanks again!
