a saturday in mannheim

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

this is taylor.


we were great friends in elementary school,
good friends in middle school,
friends in high school
and then we never spoke again.
literally, not even emails or facebook.
(she moved to florida to go to college on a soccer scholarship.)
((and i'm also really bad at keeping in touch.))
(((whoops!)))
fast forward 5 years to the year 2011.
i found out via facebook that she's recently married,
living in germany....
hey, i live in germany.
i message her and ask her where exactly in germany?
she replies.
turns out,
she lives just a hop, skip and a jump away from me.
so i hopped/skipped/jumped on a train (a couple of weeks ago)
and spent the weekend with her and her husband.
it was one of my favorite weekends
in a long, long time.
{more photos to come.}

Cute picture. I'm so glad you found her. I drive by her house in Norman all the time and think about her family. Loved it when you two were at Monroe!! And when you played soccer together.

Finding old friends is always exciting- how much better it must be to find them in a foreign country! I can't wait to hear more about the weekend.

That is so great your friend is close by - having someone from 'home' makes things feel much more manageable when you're having a bout of homesick-ness. Glad you were able to catch up with her! :)

Oh my gosh how cool! That is incredibly random. But oh so cool. Love it!
