Ann Herr and Nora
Ann's husband and my college boyfriend were boyhood friends and another one of their friends got married in Iowa. Got it?
The trip was fun and I really remember the feeling that washed over me that weekend -- that Ann and I were lifelong friends and always would be. It felt like a new grown-up phase -- a new level of best-friendness.
I loved that pink dress, but I remember people teasing me about it. It was appropriate for the late 80s, but not so much in our buttoned up preppy crowd. I've allowed myself one plastic tub of nostalgic clothes, and that dress is in there.
