The only reunion where no one cares if you're fat.

When I was 7 days old Angela was born. We were the only two babies in the church nursery. They tell us that we slept in the same bed together.

When I was 5 years old Nicolle walked in to my Wednesday night "Prims" class. I couldn't understand a word she was saying through her New Orleans accent. That really hasn't changed.

When I was 13 Kristen visited mine, Nicolle and Angela's Sunday School class. Kristen said I made a rude comment to her in front of the class and she cried the whole way home. But she came back. Thankfully.

I can't even count the things we've been through together.

Blossom, Beverly Hills 90210, even Joannie loves Chachi.
Sea Breeze, Noxema, Acutane and Clearasil.
Red Door, Lady Stetson, Liz and Charlie.
Justin Horn, Shawn Penn, Josh Hughes and Joey McIntyre.
and as we got older...
High School, college, moving away, growing up.
Marriage, divorce, having children, losing children.

And through it all - I've had the Golden Girls. My very own little Sophia, Rose and Dorothy.

Every year we have a reunion weekend. There are no wild, loud nights. No partying or dancing or staying up till dawn (never been our style). Just cards and laughter, chocolate cheesecake and memories. And laughter. Lots and lots of laughter.

In just a few hours I head to the beach to spend 3 1/2 days with the Golden Girls. But I'll be here...posting every moment every memory every bite.

(Of course I wouldn't literally post with every bite because if you know us at all - that would be a whole heck of a lot of posting.)
