As you may have guessed, I’ve already packed as many holiday memories as one could fit into one week and flown on home.
It was bitter-sweet to say good-bye, luckily there’s plenty of love to greet me at home too.
Mea Copa! I’m a tad behind with my promised post. Please enjoy this slide show of some of the hi-lites from my visit with Alys.
As you all know (if you’re new here, WELCOME) Alys and I met through our Blogs. After many months of Skype, Facebook and WordPress and a generous invite from Alys, we first met up in May. This holiday was all about celebrating Alys’s Birthday and so much more.
Do you know anyone you can talk with for hours and then say, “oh, it’s late….I’ll tell you about it tomorrow” ? It’s really just amazing to me, and I think Alys too, that we can be so in sync and alike. We often say things at the same time, hold up the same outfit across a room when shopping, have the same feelings about politics and other life asserting topics that are usually taboo in less comfortable friendships. We share the same middle name, we’re both older than our hubby’s, we were both born in Canada, we both love animals to the end of the earth and back. Well, you get the picture. We ARE two peas in a pod 😀 It’s a lovely thing. Speaking of lovely things, here’s sweet Alys with the vintage luggage case I gifted to her.
It’s similar to the ones I refurbished for myself but personalized especially for Alys. I’ll be posting a few of the crafting tricks I used to finish the project this week. If that’s up your alley, come on by.
I think about how many friends I’ve gotten to know at WordPress and marvel everyday. I really feel so darn lucky that you visit here to share the joy of art, life and other bits.
