My ten-year MHC Reunion was this past weekend. We lucked out for a second time with just perfect weather for the laurel parade. It was a beautiful day. The 'virginal' dress (much more trendy now-a-days), the old ladies in their carts waving with all their heart (one from the class of 1933 - WOW), the laurel chain on the shoulders of the fresh faces, the worst rendition of "Bread and Roses", lots of smiles and some tears. Another nice Mount Holyoke tradition.
Look what can happen in ten years! Gosh, I knew nothing. Nothing. At least now I know that I know nothing, or that at least there is so much more to know. I looked like a baby, and now I'm going to have a baby. Thank god it took me 10 years. I can't imagine raising a baby and knowing nothing. I'm a different person.
Next year it's your turn ladies. Go and do it. It really was fun to relive. And if you get knocked up you can borrow my shirt - white maternity is not so easy to come by!
