Missing My Best Friend Julie...

I called my best friend Julie last week just to talk. She lives near Detroit which is about two hours from me. She's been there for many years now, so we don't get to see each other as often as we would like. I actually haven't seen her since last fall. I told her that I felt like we were drifting apart and losing our closeness. She assured me that everything is fine. It's been on my mind. I always mean to go up there, but something always comes up.
I came home today and found this in the mail. She wrote me a wonderful note that I'm not posting. But I think you can tell from this just how much we mean to each other. I hope that each of you has a friend in your life who you can always count on and who has stood beside you through the best and the worst times of your life.

This is me on the left, Julie's little sister Lisa in the middle and Julie on the right.

So sweet! My BFF lives about 3.5 hours away and, although we have been BFFs for 20 years, it is still hard to be this far away. I love women who value other women so well. :)

Great friends are GREAT!

What a sweet gesture on her part.

and, in response to your question on my Sis' blog, there is a "Seattle Coffee" shop on Shamian Island, just down from Peter's store. You'll find it. There's another coffee shop beside the park. I think that one had Internet access.

And you HAVE to have Peter do your portrait(s) in a bottle. His artistry was far more realistic than all the other bottle painters. Check TB's blog back around Nov-Dec to see an example.

My best friend moved all over the world and then came back a couple of years ago. It's great having her so close to home now. I'm glad you have a best friend like that.
