The highlight of a fabulous (and busy) weekend...? A moment of time to sit and talk with a friend...

It was one of those rare weekends. Everything on my list got done or started. I had time with family, including the delightful (and heavy) Ben. I got to cook vast quantities of food. I had time to flirt with my husband and time to relax in the recliner with the Brute Squad!

But the best part...? Sitting at the pub chatting with "The Baroness". It's sweetness all the more special in that I don't see Shelley as often as I would like and that time with friends just hasn't been a part of my life in recent years. K3's needs, TOG's and my work schedules and other factors have played into that scenario... and I admit... I've become a bit of a hermit.

In many ways, this blog has played a pivitol role in enhancing my pathetic social life. Without it, I would not know many of women I know today. Many I've met in real life (thanks to Blog Fest) and some remain virtual... but all have enriched me and been the source of much unexpected joy.

I have to say though... Shelley is a special person. While she's the same awkward social geek that I am, she's also  the kind of person that embraces humor, writes beautifully, seeks wisdom, values honesty and makes time fly when you're with her.

As we hugged goodbye, I could not help but be thankful to this silly little blog for bringing me friends and opportunities and all the sweetness one could imagine. It's tough to put into words, but I managed to find one. Cherished!

Yes, if you're reading this... it applies to you!

Y'all have a beautiful Monday!

AG out!
