Friendship ~ Priceless!

Where would we be without friends?  Where would they be without us?  The Creator planned this one beautifully and blessedly.

Our precious Phoenix friends, Nancy & Mike ~ Ashley & Sean ~ Lacey & Tim....all played critical roles in facilitating the success of my Phoenix Holiday Trunk Show on Sunday.

Nancy & Mike opened their beautiful home for the venue....


Decorated to the "nines".....





Holiday treats and goodies which wouldn't have been possible without the help of daughters, Ashley and Lacey....




And the dads and grands stepped in to help with "kid duty"....

To top off a perfect weekend, I got to make lots of new friends and clients!  AND a visit by Karen Valentine ~ the amazing, oh-so-talented lady who designed this beautiful blog for me.  We had only spoken by phone, so meeting Karen was SO exciting!  You can meet Karen right here

Time goes by much too quickly when we're with friends ~ near or far ~ there's never enough time....

Thank you, Roach/Turner/Craumer families for your love and support.  Your friendship is a jewel in my heart!


A very special "shout-out" to my baby brother, Erik, who celebrates his birthday today....

Yes....where DOES the time go?

Speaking of time...eight days and counting ~ I've got much on my plate before Christmas arrives....wrapping, baking, cooking, last minute decorating....as I'm sure many of you do as well.

BUT,  I will make time each day for quiet reflection ~ to energize my patience ~ to keep in mind the real importance of Advent ~ and the anticipation of the coming Blessed Hope for the world....

Have a beautiful week, dear ones!
