Florence, Oregon - August 2012
SKS was reunited once again at the beach in Florence! This trip was long overdue as I think the last time we were all together was at our wedding in 2010. Two years later we were able to meet on the middle coastline of Oregon state, with me traveling from Portland and Sarah T from Ashland. Sarah D had come into town for her cousins wedding in Salem and then traveled to the beach to visit her grandparents. I was so happy to be able to spend some time with the girls and also our first plus one to the SKS group. Little Luke and I were meeting for the first time. We bonded over toys and games like I was his true Auntie. I was there for only two nights, very short lived but worth the laughs and pictures. Here are a few pics from Sarah T, I think Sarah DP took some too so may have more to post at some point.
The story of SKS
A side note if people don't know the story of SKS. Sarah, Sarah and I all met virtually when were babies. Sarah and Sarah met at Church when they were little and Sarah T's mom used to watch me when were two years old. Then we went to preschool together and then Felida Elementary School. From there is just stuck, the three of us all the time. We all lived very close together, within bike riding distance and also happened that our birthdays are all within a week of each other. Sarah D is June 5th, I am June 13th and Sarah T is June 20th. We have tried to celebrate most big birthdays together. I am the only one that didn't move out Vancouver or at least the area. I like to think of it as holding down our past times and childhood memories. Our reunions typically involve the beach for some reason or another. Sarah T's father owns a home in Lincoln City so we spent a few birthdays and graduation get-a-ways there. Our 21st birthday was spent in Hawaii and maybe we will figure out a 30th birthday in Florida at some point. These girls are very dear to me as sisters are. As the saying goes they are true BFFL no matter how far apart we are!
