It was late one night not so long ago and I was catching up on the findings from the grapevine, AKA Facebook, and discovered that my high school friend Vanna was going to be in town for a brief visit. I think the last time I saw Vanna’s friendly and pretty face in real life, and not just on the computer screen of the Facebook feed, was about 8 years ago walking through my old stomping ground of Darwin.
I had such great cluster of friends from my teenage years and goodness me we got up to some mischief! Sometimes I think some of us still do, or at least I certainly still do 🙂
I have memories of Vanna being a friendly, smiley and super caring soul and it was no surprise that when we saw each other again that not only had she get more and more gorgeous with time but she had also become much more wiser, caring and compassionate! How is that possible?!?
Now my intention was to use Vanna as a model for some street photography and re-familiarise myself with my surrounds but I must confess I may have been distracted by the scent of bubbly beer. Although as you will see I did manage to sneak in a couple of quick snaps between beverages.
While laughing about some of the antics that happened, and not to my surprise are still happening with our familiar friends, I felt so at home in her company. It’s hard to explain it was just perfect timing!
We both giggled about funny situations we have found ourselves in over the past few years and also shared our achievements and triumphs. I was so impressed to hear about Vanna’s current career movements and I am even more excited to find out how her future develops. She also spoke so fondly of her family and the closeness they all have. It is so fantastic to hear about family bonds such as Vanna’s.
There is something really precious about catching up with people from your past and I just feel so blessed to have had such an opportunity to spend an afternoon with this pretty lady.
Vanna, I can’t wait to catch up with you again and laugh uncontrollably about anything and everything! Thank you for sharing some of your time while you were here in Brisbane.
