Homecoming weekend 2013

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a lovely and refreshing weekend!  We're fighting colds around here, so I continued to clean clean clean this weekend.  Last week though, I mentioned that it was homecoming weekend at our alma mater, and I'm super excited to be sharing that with you today.  

This year was the 4th homecoming since our graduation, and it was wonderful to have everyone back together again.  The weather was beautiful, we won the football game and about 15 of our college friends came over on Sunday afternoon for yard games, more football, games, snacks, and good times.  

Truly a great weekend that did my heart so much good.  

Oh I just love him to pieces.

We really had a wonderful time in college.  We were so blessed by all of our friends and continue to be blessed in opportunities to continue to grow together and share life.  I am so thankful for things like homecoming that bring us back together to our old stomping grounds. 

And of course, the next day was unseasonably warm, which was perfect to have friends over for games.  We soaked up every last bit of great weather and sunshine!  

One of my sweet sisters and my oldest friend.  So glad she could come to visit!
 It's hard to believe it's been 4 falls already.  (Not quite 4 years though since we graduated in May!)  Here's to the good times and all the times to come!

What a happy homecoming!  Do you go back to homecoming or class reunions?  How do you keep up with your friends from school?
