best friends EVER!
for a meet-up in Colorado, and since I didn't personally know any of them, I dragged along my very good friend Wendy with me. The following year, we met up in Utah with a couple of the original group not going but we met others who fit right in our little group. Last year (aka 2013) we met in Kansas, just the 10 of us.
Flash forward to Christmas & we decided to buy each other 10 of our favorite things, mail those items to our group's Mrs. Santa and she sweetly waited until all packages had been received and sent everything our to each person. What amazing items we got! Today I received my box o goodies, Wendy & I (via Skype) opened our goodies together! What an amazing time we had, laughing and goofing around.... I even almost ate some soap that looked like chocolate. I must learn to READ packages before attempting to eat it!
