10 years......what?


The Grant family will be going to Atlanta for my 10 year high school reunion from Lovett. I can't believe 10 years have gone by so quickly. There are times when I still feel like I am in college, but goodness that was 5 years ago. This reminds me of a song, "Time keeps slipping, slipping away". I have no idea who sings it, but it is a song you would hear in the dentist office. Lets see what have I done in the past 10 years (sort of like "What did I do on my summer vacation"), what can I go back and tell everyone what I have been up too..... well I graduated college in 4 years (a fete most people did not think that I would do, and I took a semester off), learned how to snowboard, taught snowboarding, been knocked out from snowboarding, lived in a horrible dorm, lived in 3 wonderful houses with wonderful roommates and 1 apartment, got Atticus, waited way too many tables for not enough tips, cried my heart out, laughed so hard my cheeks hurt, saw many many weddings, met amazing people all along the way, been to Costa Rica 4 times, Italy once, driven "out west" 2 times, owned 3 cars, lived in 3 towns, settled in the place I love with the man I love, got wonderful in-laws, became the aunt to 7 neices and nephews, a friend to many, read 1000's of books, learned how to text message, became and insurance saleswoman, saw the pink panty march, and the biggest thing that I have ever done in my whole life was get pregnant and have a baby, sweet BellaRose. I am sure that my fellow classmates have done bigger and better things, seen more places, have exciting jobs, but I gotta tell you this life of mine "ain't" so bad. My adventures have been outstanding. I am proud of my life, proud of my family, proud of my friends-past and present. I am excited to see everyone and see where these past 10 years have taken them.

A little fall color for you. This is what I look at everyday when I leave my house and come home. Again, don't you just love fall!
Here Worth is getting ready for the skateparks in ATL on his home turf in Asheville. He defies gravity doesn't he? Our friend Nigel did not have as successful of day as his broken wrist and concussion can atest to, oops!
