I will refrain from boring you with every detail of our visit together, but I will tell you that large amounts of coffee were consumed, and some long-overdue chat time ensued. Many lines from Jane Austen and Audrey Hepburn movies were quoted, and much laughter and perhaps a small amount of silliness happened. Delectable treats were created and eaten, music was played, and shopping was done. How could I forget facials, new hairdos and manicures? Of course, none of this was abnormal for us. It did my girly heart so much good to have these two here for a short and sweet visit and indulge in all the delights of being a feminine soul. Sometimes, it is just so much fun to be a lady.
Our pumpkin crepes we ate while watching Jane Austen's "Persuasion." Ah, such a fabulous movie. If you watch it, make sure you watch the 2007 BBC version.
We have been playing piano duets together for years now, and it's a tradition we both look forward to every time we are together.

Shopping on our day out on the town!
This dear, sweet cousin inspires me with her love for all things beautiful, and her elegant style and classy aura. She was always my little sister, but now she's all grown up and lovely and amazing. [please excuse the gaudy Giant Tiger bags. It's a Canadian thing. *grin*]
She was maid of honor at my wedding, she planned my bridal shower, she booked the adorable yurt for my bachelorette party, she did the engagement shoot for my husband and I (well, he was fiance then), she was at my graduation, and...you get the picture. We are nine months apart, and have been best friends since we were babies. What would I do without Chels? I love you, dear!
Now you can't say you've never seen someone sipping cheddar bunnies from a bowl!
I wish that French manicures were practical for housewives. This one didn't even last an hour. *sigh*bean game. We even played the last half by candlelight, due to the loss of electricity for an hour or so.
They left bright and early on Friday morning, and now I'm meditating on the sweet memories we made and feeling grateful for Godly sister friends. Wise are the words of Dr. Suess: " Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened."
Enjoy the remainder of your Monday!
