A Tribute to Friendship

I want to thank you, Dear Friends, for your lovely wishes on my Daughter's birthday and also for sharing your own sweet traditions. 

I do think that traditions are the glue that holds families together. 

It's a small part of what creates our own personal story. 

The foundation. 

The ties that keep us together. 

I have been distracted these last few days, as I am planning a little adventure. 

Nothing too adventurous, but a wonderful experience of connecting with family. 

So I haven't been able to spend as much time as I would like with you, my Dear Friends. 

But you are always in my thoughts.

So I will leave you with some wonderful quotes on Friendship.


'Friendship cheers like a sunbeam; charms like a good story; inspires like a brave leader; binds like a golden chain; guides like a heavenly vision.'

Newell D. Hillis

'One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood.'


'Life is nothing without friendship.'


'How can life be true life without friends?'


'There is no better looking-glass than an old friend.'

Thomas Fuller

'Be true to your word, your work, and your friends'


I will be back soon, Dear Friends.

Thank you for your sweet friendship.
