So my pledge sister Jamie came up from Houston today to take photos of Avery. She is a professional photographer, and a very talented one (you can check out her company, Casa de Camera, at the website). I haven’t seen Jamie in about ten years, since we graduated from UT. We recently reconnected on Facebook, and after Avery was born she sent me a note asking when she could come take her picture. I told her I’d LOVE to have her come, and asked her what the sitting fee was, etc. She told me it was complementary, just requested that I love the photos (not hard to do.) And that was it. After TEN YEARS out of touch.
I have never considered myself to have been a very good sorority sister. I was always slightly removed in college, was a lousy big sis, and had a cynical attitude about most social events (at least of the mixer variety). However, I have a lot of love for my pledge sisters, a group of truly remarkable women. Despite being off the radar, I’d gladly do anything for any of them. My Facebook experiences have been incredibly humbling. There is still so much cameraderie and love there that’s being extended to me, even though I don’t really deserve it. I guess that’s what sisterhood is all about.
And they are still all badasses.
