I’ve been thinking a lot about friendship and mentioned it in my last blog. It seems that the hallmark of an authentic person is their ability to maintain friendships over the course of their lifetime.  Well, when it was time to toast Valerie, there was almost a contest as to who has known her the longest and I think the winner was someone from the age of twelve on!  Remarkable.  Everyone admires Valerie as she hung the moon and it was a joy to hear about her acts of loving kindness and generosity through the years. Get the Kleenex ‘cause you’d puddle up!

Valerie presented Lynn with an exquisite gift wrapped with two of the most beautiful Magnolia Blossoms.  Real, yes, real ones!

I have to give a special thanks to Diane Jenkins for sharing her photos with me .  Diane has used my painting ‘Moonlit Roses’ as the focal point in her master suite’.

Vanya, Valerie’s sister, was so delightful and it was great fun to be able to see her daughter, Boyden, in from Washington for the special occasion!

Let’s open the presents.  I thought the hand painted bench with the chickens was adorable & most appropriate as Valerie has chickens and bees!  I’ve been a recipient of both!!!
