It was a weak moment...


Not a big fan of birthday's. Well no...I take that back. I am a huge fan of OTHER people's birthday's. Just not mine. Why? I dunno. Just not. So the husband caught me in a very weak moment. I think I was feeling happy happy about the backyard getting put back together...and I was missing my girly friends. So when he mentioned a little birthday get together...yup yup let's do it....was my response. As the time approached I wasn't quite feeling all that excited but hey...I made the commitment.

I truly have the most ah-ma-zing friends. I don't know how I got so lucky. In our lifetime we hope to have a couple of really great gal friends. I have a number of them. The ones you can call at anytime...day or night...for any reason. And they won't mind.

Here is one of them. Laurie. Words can't explain the wonders of this woman.
I said...no food, no gifts, no nothing...just come and let's hang out. We will eat and gab and share a cocktail...but please come empty handed. If you knew Laurie you would know that that is just not possible. This is what she brought. A cake that emulates my banner. I mean COME ON. If you look closely you can see the lamp on my worktable. The silver coffee urn with my paintbrushes.

Tears...that is what I brought to the party.

Did I tell you my friends were Amazing?
