The Years – Best Friends


me oldie

Where did twenty-five go? We’d ask one another as we reminisced about our younger selves.


Me and San
Me and Zan aged 21


Good times, fearless and carefree,

When every day was filled with a new possibility.

(Me and Bri in our mid 20s)

Where should we go tonight? Who might we meet?

The days of blue eyeshadow, midnight pool parties, and five inch heels on our feet.


Me and Bri at a work party


Vivid memories become slightly foggier.


Coffee houses harbored our secrets and wants,

A time to go dancing, frequenting our favorite haunts.


Me and Zan getting our party on (yep, she went blonde as I was subtly on my way to red)


Nightclubs in dark smoke-filled rooms, our shadows glared on the dance floor from strobing lights,

Highlighting our wild passions as we danced through the night.


Music blaring, too loud to speak,

But kept our feet in perfect rhythm to the disco beat.


Crushes, excitement, and heartbreak were all part of the times,

The days I miss; end of an era, marking maturation of the minds.

best friends


30  some years later


me and san

We carry those smiles deep in our hearts,

No distance or time can keep us apart.

  1. What wonderful nostalgia as you look back with friends.. Such lovely photo memories Debbie.. And oh that blue eye-shadow, I remember it well 🙂 haha.. So lovely you have all kept in touch.. Not many can say that these days..
    Love and Hugs Sue xxx


    1. Thanks for visiting Sue in your catch up madness, lol. Yes, I am blessed to have not one, but two best friends whose friendships have endured through the decades. xoxo ❤


      1. I’m sorry for the loss of your friend Sue. And we are blessed to have a few good friends. It’s beautiful that you can say your husband is your best friend. 🙂 xoxo ❤


  2. What a beautiful post, Debby. I’m loving the hair flicks. Those photos are like gold dust. They bring so many lovely memories back. If only I could take you back on my time machine. Enjoy this year’s reunion. I hope you’ll all planning one?


    1. Lol thanks so much Hugh. I’d love to go for a ride on your time machine! 🙂 I’m not sure if there will be a reunion this year again, but hoping to get to the UK next year to visit Zan (she moved there 18 years ago, and even that hasn’t hindered our friendship), and get to the Bash at the same time! Here’s to hoping! xo


      1. Well thank you so kindly Hugh! Indeed I’d love to. Lol, I have so many wonderful friends now from the blogging world, I may have to stay a few months to visit and spend time and party! 🙂 xoox


    1. Aw shucks Carol, you make me blush. Thanks for the compliments. But it is funny to see the different hairstyles. I’m happy to say that I never changed my sense of style, and don’t plan to. 🙂


    1. Lol thanks Aq! Yes, so many people asked me how I could go from blonde to red, doesn’t everyone want to be a blonde? My answer: Redheads have more fun! 🙂 Happy week to you my friend! xo ❤


  3. A lovely tribute to friendship that last and last and last. No matter how far away we are. No matter how long it’s been since we’ve seen each other. That sharing of the past. My brother was my first dance partner and we danced together again at my son’s wedding in 2013 and at his son’s wedding a few years before that. We still knew how. The body remembers…


    1. Lol, Hi Janice. I am still learning more about Festisite, but I like that one particular one I used because you can add in whatever words you like. And now for the lol, to be honest, I don’t remember where I got the ‘scoopit’ share button. I’ve been frantically searching for a reblog, or repost button for self hosted wordpress, and I googled ‘ reblog to share button on’ and I began clicking on suggestions and thought this was the same as reblog, but it turns out it’s not, and I really have no clue what it does now that I managed to get it up there, lol. So maybe you can enlighten me? Hilarious huh? 🙂
