329 Lives On

When Breen, Mallie, Susi and I decided to room together senior year at ND (in the glorious suite 329), I knew we'd have a great year but didn't imagine reunions years and years later. Then again, as seniors we didn't like to imagine life beyond May. Pregnancies, new jobs, family crises have prevented the regularity we'd prefer for our reunions, but they have occasionally happened. So far, this year's has been my favorite.
It's no small feat to manage a weekend away, and I was nervous that a trip to CA was too ambitious. But then Susi sent a picture of her spectacular mountain retreat in Tahoe, and we were sold. And when we actually arrived, it was love at first sight.

We originally planned to ski, as these trips started out as somewhat annual ski trips. The lack of snow derailed those plans, which was fine by me. We managed to run, hike, hot tub, shop, cook, snooze, drink wine, and talk. A more perfect retreat for four moms is unfathomable.
We kept joking about how truly happy we all look in these photos of the four of us. But seriously, what's not to love about this weekend? (And a huge shout-out to those guys we love who made this all possible!)
