I really enjoy my gal pals. I don't have many, but the ones I have are very precious to me.
Today I got to celebrate with a close friend a milestone that she and her hubs have been working toward since I met her four years ago.
They bought a home. It is not their first, but I do believe this one will be their forever.
And being the great friend I am, I get to help her get the painting done. That might not sound like a a huge deal to anyone else, but I love when my friends trust my judgement enough to ask me for advice on what they should do with their rooms.
It can be a slippery slope to maneuver because I know what I like and am very vocal about it. One of the hardest things is when you don't have the same taste, which Vicky and I don't. It's okay, that's what makes our friendship great. We are different and choose to celebrate that instead of letting it hinder our friendship.
We also made sure to get them a kick-ass housewarming gift. I had posted yesterday about our new pool umbrella's and she happened to comment on how they were going to pick one up for their back yard too. Yes, she got a house with a pool. So the hubs and I decided we would surprise them this morning with that very thing.
So now I know that on those long days after we have gotten some work done on her new abode, I will have some lovely shade to enjoy as I float in her pool.
