How to reconnect with an old crush?

Anonymous
So its been 9 years since I was in High School. Back then there was a girl that I was always interested in but never went after.

Anyways while surfing on FB about 3 months ago I saw her profile and sent a friend request. She friended me back and even sent a message asking how I'd been. We had a short conversation and at the end of it I mentioned we should meet up sometime to reminisce about HS. She replied that we definitely should and gave me her number saying to text her anytime.

Well this all took place at the beginning of Dec. and so between the craziness of the holidays, seeing on FB that she was out of the country in Jan., and because I had still been recovering from a break up with my ex in Sept.. I never contacted her. Now I'm ready to contact her but its been so long that I'm concerned that I missed my chance.

So I'd like to text her and I realize I screwed up by not contacting her sooner but I don't know what to text as I feel like I owe her an explanation on why it too so long. So any suggestions on what I should say or some decent text message ice breakers?
