Girlfriend Valentines

Saturday February 6th, my Dear Friends and I got together
Our day was spent sharing Valentines, a potluck lunch to which we each bring a different element. I brought many veggie soup a favorite in my home, Robin brought an amazing salad with hand roasted pecans, Florence made mini quiche and lavender lemonade & Katy an incredible apple dessert. It is always fun to see what each one of us brings for the day in food, fun and fellowship. We started getting together monthly just one year ago. It is hard to believe a year has gone by and how close we have all become. I could not have imagined all the adventures and misadventures this past year brought into our lives. Having friends to share with has made the unbearable things survivable, the adventures funnier, and life in general richer. Each one of my girlfriends is extremely talented as you can see from this beautiful quilt Florence just whipped up, and the wool pillows Robin taught us to create. Katy is our master chef and poet, we are hoping to publish some of her great works soon. Florence provided the setting which as she always does, gave us a magical, wonderfully comfortable place to come together and create. I left feeling very loved, cared for and warmed by my fellow Smokin' Hot Mary Jane's( a name we penned and laughed about at one of our very first meetings) Wishing you the love of warm friends & family this Valentine's Day.
