Friendship

What would we do without our girlfriends?  My dear dear friend Debbie arrived at my doorstep at the early hour of 7 something on a Sunday bearing gifts. Birthday gifts......I tell you this not because I am soliticing birthday wishes but to illustrate true friendshp.  My family is not one to be overly gushing and flowery for birthdays; this is a concept that others don't exactly get but it is us.   When Debbie asked what I was doing special on my birthday and I said probably laundry and cleaning I do believe I set her mind to hatching her little plan.   So we indulged in Mimosa's, an incredible edible fruit bouquet and presents.  See, my best girlfriend couldn't understand how one could not be surrounded with family on their birthday and over she pops at 7 a.m.   That, my dears, is a true friend!

Happy Birthday! Debbie certainly is a wonderful friend, what lovely gifts. The necklace and ear-rings are beautiful.

What great way to start a birthday.

We also do not do much for birthdays but what little we do have is enough.
So yes the little extras that come from great friends is always welcome.

Hope you had a wonderful birthday.
