We started out as little neighbourhood playmates:
We were the first invites to each other’s birthday parties:
Together, we experienced our 15 Minutes of Fame at a Teddy Bear Picnic:
…and the traditional New Year’s Eve sleepover parties:
…and 10,001 other days spent together that were never captured by camera (click here to read about Memories of Swimming Lessons, for instance!).
Now flashforward a whole bunch of years…
Place: The Huether
Time: after work
Who: yours truly and her Very First Best Friend (VFBF from here on out)…
Despite having over 1.5 hours at our disposal, and chatting/sharing/laughing non-stop, VFBF Joanne and I barely cracked the surface of possible discussion topics!
Happily, we both agreed that last eve’s visit is the first of many to come. Soul Sisters reunited!
You knew it.
I knew it.
They knew it.
Welcome home, Baby!!!
Baby Robin is in da house! [This time, I needed no assistance to come up with a name: “Robin” is fitting for spring and, also, YOU can decide – boy or girl?!!]
…but Meg and Leif are not pet owners.
And that’s OK by the landlord (aka me).
But, you say, what if FOUR plates are needed?? After all, three is an odd number…
Well, Meg, Leif and Baby Robin will simply jet off for a vacation:
Winter returned with a vengeance overnight:
It made my heart turn to Christmas, obviously, as I purchased my first xmas gift for December 2011! Can’t say for who, can’t say what. But Operation Christmas 2011 is underway!
Do you buy gifts ahead of time, or only right before the occasion? For my mom, Christmas stocking stuffer buying is a year-round activity!
