I just came out of the loveliest weekend!
Next to spending time with family is spending time with dear friends – and these two that flew all the way from Ohio to visit me are some of the very dearest!
Janelle and Dora and I met at a Bible School back in 2002. The three of us have kept up through the years since then. Sometimes long spaces go inbetween the times we see each other, but we have always been able to pick up where we left off as if it were yesterday. I just love friends like that!
They flew in Thursday, we ate lunch at the Cheesecake Factory (be still, my beating heart, how I love that restaurant), and headed home…
Friday we spent the day in Savannah. Lovely old city. I hadn’t been there for a little while, and it was just so fun to be there together!
In front of one of the many little parks along Abercorn – Dora, Janelle, Zoe, and Jackson.
There are SO MANY amazing places in Savannah. Imagine my deep agony when my camera battery died only a short time into the day! I was heartbroken!
Beautiful Janelle and her handsome little son.
Zoe, one of the few times she was in the stroller.
This was a more typical scene of her that day.
Well, I guess, what do you expect when you give them these photo-shoot lollipops?? Dora bought one for Zoe and Janelle one for Jackson.
I thought Zoe’s little skirt/shoes/outfit matched perfectly with the lollipop picture, even though it was not planned!
Wow, was she one *happy* little girl with this in her hands. :)
They got so messy, but oh, were they happy!
Saturday: we spent a little bit – not nearly long enough – of time at an antique shop in town, then quickly ran home for a Mary Kay party! Janelle is a consultant, and did a great job of making some of my friends from the area and myself feel so pampered! And it was so fun for me to have my friends meet each other – something that’s rare with how far south we live!And I have been a fan of Mary Kay ever since my Aunt June introduced me to it when I turned 16 – she gave me some products for my birthday and I’ve been on them ever since! Love it!
Early morning airport run on Sunday, and I was left with the happiest of memories! I totally felt like a teenager again over the weekend – in a good sense of the word! Talking into the late hours of the night (something rare for me these days!) about life, about God, laughing until we could hardly breathe, being real and honest with each other, learning from each other, feeling carefree and young! Friendships are just good for the soul!
This is us! What a beautiful friendship we share. I love these beautiful ladies so much!

And keep the old;
One is silver
And the other gold.”
