Just Like a Muse to Me

In preparation for the reunion festivities this weekend, I dug out my Camp Foley photo album, which I had painstakingly labeled and organized.

And thank God I did! My kids don't have baby books, but we'll all be able to enjoy hundreds of photos of me wearing overalls and looking completely ridiculous.

In fact, The overalls were the major theme of all of our Foley albums. There were six of us former counselors in attendance at this reunion, and it's hard to find a single photo that doesn't include at least one person wearing overalls.

Anne told a hilarious story about the time her husband Josh had to tell her to stop wearing hers, many years after we'd stopped working at camp.

"He said, 'Honey, I don't really see people wearing those anymore. I think those are maybe a little out of style,'" she recounted.

Then Emily (pictured above with the pom pom on her head) told the group she'd seen me wear mine during the ninth month of my pregnancy with Shef with all three of the side buttons undone. I did do that. And I also wore them to work.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who held on a little bit too long.

I still have them, and I'm never throwing them away. Just wait... they'll be back in style and our teenage kids will think we're super cool for owning a vintage pair. Great weekend. Great friends.
