I had a wonderful time this past weekend with friends from graduate school.  Lauren's family generously invited us to their beach house, and we have been coordinating our schedules and planning the trip for months.  We all went there right after graduation last year, so we are hoping it will be an annual trip.

It was great to hear everyone's work stories and relate to each other's experiences.  I am so thankful that we are all employed and for the most part very happy with our jobs.  I sometimes feel like I'm way behind everyone my age (jobs, finances, home ownership, marriage, children, etc.), so I appreciate getting to spend time with several friends in the same season of life.  

We spent most of our time relaxing, at Lauren's house and on the beach, and eating.  A little girl whose family was near us on the beach fed the seagulls some of her snacks, which aggravated my friends, as the seagulls flocked to the area and ended up targeting one of us.  Hence, #dontfeedthegulls[child's name].

The only photo I told myself I wouldn't leave without: a group shot of us cleaned up.  We took this before going out to eat.  Dinner was delicious, and I was pleasantly surprised to see one of my good friends from high school at the restaurant!

Do you take an annual beach trip with friends?  How often do you see friends from high school/college/graduate school?  How do you make an effort to stay in touch?
