Changing the world is good for those who want their names in books. But being happy, that is for those who write their names in the lives of others, and hold the hearts of others as the treasure most dear.” —Orson Scott Card

 my cousin/best friend/partner in crime. LOVE her.

“Friendship doubles our joy and divides our grief.”—Swedish Proverb
(some of) my book club ladies. I am so thankful for this group of "ladies" (I use the term "ladies" lightly here). 
I am eternally grateful we've found each other and continue to grow our friendship. love to my ladies.

“Friendship is the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words.”—George Eliot
ah my raphie. we are destined to be best friends forever (if he likes it or not - hehe).

“Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.”
me and my best friend (way back in the way back). my life was complete the day Troy decided to be my best friend for life. Words cannot describe.

I am eternally grateful for my lovely friends. I know that I am richly blessed.

One of the things on my list (of 36 things to do before I'm 37) is to nourish my friendships. It's probably one of my favorite things on my list (obviously because I have great friends).

If you're my friend and you weren't pictured here you can either:

a) count yourself lucky this time because my photos are so unorganized now that I couldn't find you (Tami - I have a great photo of us at a gift shop sale...darned it where'd it go?)
b) know that your time is coming so watch out
c) know that you were NOT forgotten and that I treasure you.

Happy Day my friends!
