Thankfully, not every friendship has been lost. No matter how many miles away or how long it has been...when we are given the opportunity to get together, it is like no time has passed! Of course, when we talk about times where we first met and where our kids are now, it is amazing to realize just how time has flown!
This past Friday and Saturday, Mr. B and I were very, very blessed to have our dear friends T and K fly down to spend some time with us! T and Mr. B flew helicopters in Hawaii together and we lived across the street from each other on Schoffield Barracks, Hawaii. They took care of our girls when I went to the hospital to have our son. And we took care of their two girls when K had their 3rd daughter.
Oh, how wonderful the fellowship was! Laughter over memories, current moments, and future plans :o) (Our heartbreaker and their beauty that were born in Hawaii, can't get away from the parents' dreams and schemes of an arranged marriage haha... the workings of getting the stallions and dowery, etc are brought up during phone convos or whenever we get the chance to be together :o) Of course, we don't talk exclusively about the combining of our families, but the two young 'uns know that at some point this is enthusiastically discussed amongst the parents :o)
The time was short, but so sweet and greatly appreciated! Here is a video clip of some photos with these dear friends...
And this one is of some more special times shared over the years with the L family...
**********And here are some photos of some completed orders that I have meaning to post.
This Personalized Sketches artwork was ordered for a wedding gift. It was a monogram that was from the wedding announcement of Erin & Keith Nacis. A happy celebration to a new life together as one.
The next one was given in memorial of a little one that went on to be with the Lord. A sweet little one, dearly loved and in her short time on earth became such a big part of her family's heart.
The couple was done for Nancy from BacardiMama as a Christmas gift for her in-laws. Sh-h-h...it's a surprise ;o)
These cute dachshunds belong to Suzanne from Coloradolady. You can see some photos of her precious pups on her blog.
Thank you all for your orders! I have enjoyed drawing them and appreciate your interest! I do have quite a number of others that are completed and I will be posting them the next time.
I do appreciate each and everyone of you that come by and also thank you for your comments.
Blessings & Aloha!
