Reunion

Reunion

I had my ten year high school reunion last weekend, which naturally led to some reflection. Thinking about who I was at eighteen, who I thought I’d become, what I imagined my future to be like. What this reunion would be like. The feeling I had coming back from the reunion was really peaceful. Both Matt and Victor went with me, so it felt like a nice step into being even more public with our polyamory. I didn’t expect any negativity, perhaps just some awkwardness. I received only positivity. Some of you even mentioned reading this blog! (Which I honestly needed as motivation.)

During the reunion, I had moments where I just looked at Victor and Matt and appreciated where I was, right then. I have a family. I love seeing the bond between Matt and Victor who love each other as brothers. I love that we go on walks in our neighborhood with our dog. I love that we grocery shop together, cook together, collaborate on projects, have so many stupid inside jokes (like. so many.) I love knowing that even if I fail at every daydream, that this one has already come true.

I have no idea what my high school self would think of me. Hell, maybe she’d be proud. I hope that in the next ten years who I am today will be proud of who I am by then. Fingers crossed.
