Visits from friends are so fun! Last week, my friend Grace and her children came for a visit!

Friends delight in gifting something you know the other will like - Grace made this for me including the adorable box!

Friends make cookies together!

Friends go berry picking together!

Friends plop down in the field and let sweet juice drip from their chins and enjoy childhood together!

Friends love to play with you, but are happy to rest too!

Friends make you smile!

Friends love picnics together!

And, enjoying those cookies made together earlier!

Friends help with big projects!

Friends stand and slice strawberries together!

We are thankful for the fun new memories from this time with friends!

You girls look like you're the sweetest of friends. It shows in your kids too.

You could almost pass for sisters. :)

Curious what you did with those Strawberries. Did you can them?

It's so funny, but when I think of you and Grace, I always hear you saying, "My friend Grace"...that's like her name in my head now. LOL!!
The cabinets look so great!!! So do the strawberries!!

Grace said...

Can you and Grace take your show on the road!? My already painted white cabinets need a touch-up coat. I am in awe that you tackled this project together. It is amazing how much can get accomplished amongst the catching up that happens with dear friends.
