...just gotta brag

There's no way that my photos
can do her photos justice,
but I just have to brag on my bestie Anne.

She's gone and done it!

with help from some "fabulous"  and talented friends.

I'm one of the lucky ones that get Romantic Country Magazine thru subscription,
so I have mine even before Miss Fiona and Twig!

Six yummy pages of wonderful photos
taken at the home and Bed and Breakfast of Linda and Ludmil Markov

Anne is a woman of many talents;
her strengths lie in her determination, goal-making, and strong faith.
Miles may be between us,
but we have a connection that speaks not of the distance,
but of the heart.

I'm proud that one of her dreams has come true.
May it only be the beginning.

Look for Romantic Country to be on display next week.
te he,
lucky me...

Blog World's Longest Running Give Away

Do I have your attention?

OK, well it might not be the world's longest, but I can tell you it will be one of the best!!   My  BBBFF, (best bloggy bud friend forevah)

Anne from  Fiona and Twig 

is having an awesome giveaway. Am I the only person that loves the word "Awesome"?

OK, it's a FABULOUS Give Away
that's been in the works for awhile!

Anne is hobnobing with all the beautiful people at Warrenton this week and I'm stuck in the Midwest with the "I can't help it's". That's my term for whining and fussing because I'm not down there, too. She's been a fabulous friend because she gets me on the phone and then shoves it in someone's face and says "here's my poor friend, she's sad cause she's not here, so tell her Hi". So far it's worked great because I've gotten to talk to Sweet T, the Trash Diva, TOT, and Thee Mindy and her sidekick. I almost got to talk to RNC but I was in the bathroom and couldn't make it to the phone. waaah, waaah.

Now, If you've not signed up, all you have to do is go over to Anne's blog and join as a follower. That's it.

 And if you don't know Anne,

(OK, I couldn't resist, this was when she was 3)

then you're missing out on one of the funniest, sweetest, prettiest, and most talented people out here in the Blogosphere!

Anne is collecting an array of vintage surprises on her trip, so along with French ephemera, linens, and anything and everything that she may accumulate, I can tell you it will be one AWESOME Giveaway!

She'll be home in a couple of days so surprise her, and then the rest of the blog world can sign on.

Now, a shameless plug for me...
Come back tomorrow
because I'm starting a give away
that will jewel and bedazzle you.
 I've been excited to get it started, so...
see ya tomorrow!

Adieu, doux ami

I am not a big dessert eater.
I love a piece of cake, or pie like the next person,
but I don't keep it around the house.
I don't eat dessert on a daily basis.

But this Christmas my St. Louis kids
 gave me a little box of chocolates.
They're not big candy eaters either,
 but were just celebrating the joy of giving goodies.

Who would know what lurked inside
this plain brown box.

4 chocolate truffles,
(with sea salt)
that were as delicious as anything I'd ever tasted.

I have a lot of willpower in some things.
Candy is one of them.
Once I opened this little jewel I made the decision
that I couldn't overdo it.

Two bites a day.

That's all.


But now they are gone,
And like a friend who has moved.
I miss them.

Good thing there isn't one of these close by.

What kind of candy is YOUR favorite?
And do you indulge,
or ration it?

Goodbye, "sweet" friend.

Happy Birthday, Captain America

When we met, you had just turned 20.
I'll never forget how I got lost in your blue eyes.
We've been together for 37 years and you are still my hero.

Thankyou for always being my best friend.
