Has it really been 17 years?

I was so excited today because one of my very best friends from Junior high and High school flew into our airport today with his wife. He lives in Atlanta and I rarely get to see him and I've never met his wife (even though they have been married for 8 years.
Doug was the smartest guy in high school as well as a great athlete. I always thought he would be President one day (and I still think there is a good chance). He went to college in Atlanta and later went to Harvard. His sweet and beautiful wife is an emergency room doctor.
Thanks to facebook - we have recently connected again. If you are not on it - you should be! :-)

We got to sit and visit for a little while. They were on their way to our hometown to have Christmas with his family.
Here we are today and then in 1991 the year we graduated. We were Mr and Miss FHS. ha!

Do you think we have changed in 17 years? I feel like Doug doesn't look a day older. I believe my hair has changed a little. ha! (In size and color. )

That is awesome!! I love the big, dark, hair! I'm glad you were able to hang out with your friend. 17 years...that's a long time!!!
P.S. I also RSVPed to LO. She's pleased that I was "raised right." Ha!

Kelly,
Can you tell me how to embellish my header and how to get the photos to open bigger when you click on them? I'm still learning! Thanks for the help!
