On Friday night, I got to hang out with my Penrose 81 loves.  I LOVE them.  We just talked and talked and laughed and talked and talked some more.  It was just like the good old days of freshman year.  It made me think of all the thousands of laughs and memories we have from that year.  Things have changed since then...two of us are married, one is engaged, two are basically engaged in serious relationships, and then of course, there's me.  But it doesn't matter because we're still the same.  Kel is still the inspirational poster of what I want my life to be like, Rick still tells the stupidest jokes, Keech is still fun-sized and so filled with common sense and practicality and is basically a saint, Mace is still in love with Curtis/Cosmo, Rach still has that stupid/dumb face perfected and is still my very best friend in the whole wide world, and all of them can't wait to see what my children will be like...

It's so weird that the Penrose 81 stage of our lives is long gone, but I just hope that we forever remain the Penrose 81 girls.  I never, ever could have asked for a better freshman year--seriously, nothing could have topped it.  I'll never forget the pet burials, the special Ricky snacks, the pranks, the late late late night chats, and everything else.

I love you girls more than you know :)

Looking at that old picture brings back so many memories! Though, I find it funny that most of us look really different . . . except for you, who even has the exact same stance in both pictures. :)

But really, looking at that old picture, I had no idea how close we were all going to get. I love it. If I had only known what I was getting myself into. Psych. :) I love it, and I miss it.
