Just Beachy

oh a vacation would be spectacular...
but alas, my Girl's Getaway Vacay had to be cancelled
You see my Best Friend almost died July 3
so I made a mad dash up to Freeman Hospital in Joplin, MO
and thankfully she will be fine
but she was in there for a week
I stayed with her most of the time
I couldn't work knowing/not knowing

Here is what we should have been doing:

Here is the pic of our "Hospitalcation"

now go join the challenge (with a Prize!)
