Cherished Friendships

It is said......

A friend is one who knows you and
loves you just the same.

We've all had people that come into our lives, stay awhile,
and then they are gone

......and then there are those special friends that come into your
lives and simply good times,
and in the not so good times,

They are forever friends

We had two of our "forever" friends
visit this week

Tom, Carol and their sweet babies Isabella & Jessepe

me, carol and our sweet furry babies
at the beach

Aren't they adorable

Our friendship has always included
many fabulous meals throughout the years
(Dan & Tom are wonderful Chefs)
and Carol and I are very good at sipping wine and watching them cook!!

Here is a peak at some of
the delicious dishes Dan & Tom
cooked up!!

Shrimp Scampi to die for!!!!!

Tom is Italian and makes the
best pasta & sauce
I've ever eaten

The pasta was served with veal chops that were out of this world
Sorry I didn't get a picture of those.......I was in too much of a hurry to EAT them!!!!

Carol, hubby, and Tom
toasting to our friendship

Carol is a very talented seamstress
so while she was here
I got out the sewing cabinet
I inherited from hubby's grandmother

It's very old and I don't know much
about sewing so I'd never really
done anything with it.

Turns out it was beautiful
AND it worked like a charm

Carol and I went shopping
and I bought some pretty fabric

She helped me make my first "sewing" project

A Pretty Pillow

I also took Carol to all my favorite
flea markets and we found
some good loot!!!!
Carol bought me this darling metal sign

It looks great on my front porch

We had so much fun with our
"forever" friends

We love you Tom & Carol!!!!!

Come back and stay again soon!!!!
