Two weekends ago I went back to Salem College for my 5 year reunion. It was so great to be back on campus and to see so many friends from my class.
Tomlin, my senior year roommate, and I arrived on Thursday night and crashed at our friend Katie's house. On Friday we went straight to Cook Out for lunch. It was a wonderful as we remembered.
Next stop was Harris Teeter for a cooler, beer, and a bag of ice. They must have been out of Salem College coolers, so we settled for the Wake Forest one and made the necessary modifications.
We sat on the patio and waited for the party to arrive.
Saturday started with a class picture and then a champagne lunch. At the lunch the class of 1950 sang a song that made us all cry and laugh. And we all stood and applauded the member of the class of 1935, and maybe cried again.
Later we went to dinner and then most of the class met up at one of the favorite bars. It was an early night, most of us went home by 12:30am.
We capped of the weekend with brunch at another favorite spot, then all said our goodbyes and headed home.
It was a wonderful, relaxed weekend that left me with a huge smile on my face. I know that it could never be the same, but I swear I'd go back and do it all again in a heartbeat! Now I can't wait for 2015 and our 10 year reunion!
