Catching up with HS {and college} friends

Taking silly photos with my college friend, Nick
 Catching up with friends can be difficult, but Winter Break and other holidays are the perfect time for doing so. One of the best things about coming home (besides seeing family and sleeping in your own bed) has to be meeting up with high school friends and/or college friends (if you live near your college like I do.) 

Nick and I exchanged Christmas gifts and he got me
the silver infinity bracelet on the right -- love it.
My first best friend, Jasmine - we've
 been friends since we were babies :)

My high school friend, Hannah and I eating GOOD :)
It's nice catching up with people without the stressors of school work. Each time you come home, it gets more difficult to communicate with friends from high school, make plans and actually follow through with those plans. After years of being in college, the number of friends I see over break has trickled down, but I kind of like it that way.
You'll see the people you really want to see.

My high school friend Kate and I got
dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant - yum!

Christmas gift from my high school friend, Alex

Eating more Mexican food with Alex - and sweet tea!
It takes effort, but staying in touch with friends from all areas and time periods of your life is really important. My college friends have seen my growth since freshman year, and my high school friends know the high school version of me, yet have kept up with my growth over the years. I don't know who I'd be without my high school best friends and college best friends and I'm really grateful that I still have great relationships with people who have known me for so many years.

Alex and I!
Taking pictures when you meet up is also so much fun!



  1. You hit the nail on the head. You definitely see the people that you want to see.

    Nevertheless, it looks like you had a great time visiting old friends.

    Happy New Year to you!

  2. It was always a tough balance between HS and college friends for me, because my college friends all lived pretty close to where I was originally from. Since graduating, I've started hanging out with my HS friends a little bit more, but so much has changed! It looks like you're having a great time though. Thank you for the comments on my blog, checkout my recent posts on NYE-worthy fashion.
