Oh my goodness! How much fun can two best friends possibly have?

What a time we had! I went to Portland last Wednesday to have my car serviced, but more importantly to see my best friend, Melanie. Of course I had to bring her some goodies, and she said I looked like a bag lady waiting there for her to pick me up...thanks Mel!
All of these items were either purchased or gifted to me by Melanie! I love it all, but more importantly we had such a great time, a leisurely (for us!) lunch, and laughed until our stomachs ached! It's a wonderous thing that happens when two best friends get together, we were even saying the same thing at the same time I tell ya! We just need to do it more often, for both our sakes.
Ladies, I know you treasure your friends, it's so's amazing the things I say to her that I don't tell anyone else! She just "gets" me....and I feel so grateful for her friendship.
My last stop, before picking up my car, was to her shop, "All My Favorite Things", and I just have to say that I've NEVER seen her shop look so inviting, so bright, simply fabulous. I was actually jealous of her shop! I want one too! Do yourself a favor and go check her shop out, you won't regret it...she has so many fabulous items, and everything was so reasonably priced, important in this economy. I know you'd find something to love.
I hope you all have a great week, and go out and support your local shops. We all want a thriving community.....
