This past weekend I went home for my 20th high school reunion! I'm from New Jersey, (no comments please) and was not only thrilled to see everyone, but was also in complete awe of where I grew up! Okay, I admit it. I completely took my childhood for granted! I lived in a beautiful little town called Mountain Lakes, surrounded by woods and 6 man-made lakes where we swam in the summer and ice skated in the winter. There was no crime, unless you want to call a bunch of kids partying at one of the large stucco's in town a crime. I DID get driven home by the Mountain Lakes police once for pool hopping at the Mtn. Lakes Country Club! Pretty badass I know! No one really locked their doors, and we didn't even lock our lockers at school. Apparently they still don't! I only had 88 students in my graduation class and our high school was ranked one of the top in the state. The biggest thing we had to worry about were grades and where the next party was, yet I STILL thought my life was hard! Thanks mom and dad for moving us to such a beautiful and safe town for our childhood, and thank you to the class of '91 for such a fun weekend full of good food, drinks and laughter! Go Lakers!
