-friends-

aren't they great?

this was taken at my birthday festivities last weekend. both dear friends of mine i met through scrapbooking.

i met renee last year when i found her store (www.love2scrap.ca) and placed an order. after hanging around on the forum, my girlfriend rhonda and i decided we needed a getaway and signed up for her pigeon lake fall retreat.

HAD A BLAST!!

i decided that this must be an annual thing:) while i was there, i also got to know elizabeth. we exchanged numbers and started spending time together. around the same time i started hanging out with renee (okay... hanging out/spending time=scrapbooking).

i really suck at letting the people i care about know how much they mean to me. i'm not good with words and don't always know how to show it. so to my dear friends who love me for the big nerd i am, for all the things i may do and say, for all the corny jokes i tell, for everytime i've showed up late, for all the good and bad, and everything in between, thanks. big thanks, big hug, you mean so much to me.

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad. ~Arnold H. Glasgow
