Strangers are just friends waiting to happen.

Hello, sweet friends…
I begin a new week with excitement as I remember how special last week was! It began with a wonderful day celebrating our puppy Camille and her first birthday.
Camille is such a joy to have around, and it’s heartwarming to see her grow and learn new things.
I had also enjoyed lunch with a friend which was a great way to catch up and spend quality time together. I appreciate special friendships and know the importance of nurturing and maintaining those connections.
Being able to attend the opening day of the season at the farmers market was exciting!
There’s always a special energy and buzz at markets, and it was a great opportunity to support local vendors and find unique treasures.
A date day of lunch and a movie (and a little shopping) was a perfect way to unwind and enjoy some downtime…taking breaks from my daily routines and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.
And last but not least, preparing a coronation quiche for an afternoon brunch was an impressive feat! Cooking is a great way for me to express creativity and show love and appreciation to those around me.
Overall, it’s clear that I had a fabulous week filled with fun, friends, and delicious food.
Celebrating life’s special moments and enjoying the little things is what makes life truly beautiful.
Wishing you an amazing week!
