What Kind of Friend Are You?

Friendships are challenging to maintain with all the struggles we go through in life, but they are so worth it!  Today I’m realizing just how important friendship is and I’m thanking God for it.  I write about it at Lisa Shaw Cares, on her website blog, WomenWalking With Jesus.  Please join me there.

This Flapper Turned 40

Our daughter hit her 40th year last week and we celebrated in Chicago Mob Gangster style.  I don’t know if it’s because she was born at this time of year or she’s just a party girl, but ever since she was little costumes have been a major part of the celebrations! 

Here is a taste of some of the party fun!

With her gangster husband!

With my flapper daughters.

So good to spend time with our daughter from San Diego and her family!

My husband and I clowning around!

My brother-in-law, “The Don” stole the show!  He cooked up authentic Italian recipes going way back to his family in Bari, Italy!  He served us fried artichokes, both plain and meat sauces over Orechiete pasta and meat braciole.

It’s been wonderful to have family visiting from CA, NM and Chicago.  Life around our house is back to normal again and now we have colorful memories tucked in our hearts!
