wbw again!

obvs I've been looking at photos from high school. this is from when I got my Gold Award! and that there lady, Kathy, our leader? kind of one of my heroes. Her daughter, Stacey, was in my grade and my troop, and in third grade they were in a car accident coming home from skiing over spring break and Stacey died. It took her a little while to grieve, but it was SO important to Kathy that she come back and be a part of our lives--the girls who were her scouts and her daughter's friends.

so sad, but so heartwarming too.

anyhoodle, so, that's me, whitney, amanda, kathy and ellen. amanda and I lived next door together when we were like 5-8, and ellen and I lived down the street from one another after. oh, memories of super contra (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, b, a, select, start, anyone?), tie dye, older sisters, secret clubs, sleepovers and bike rides. :)
