When I came home from work on Friday, after unloading countless boxes of Roasting Chestnut candles, Chocolate body butter lotion, The best Barefoot Contessa quick mixes, and gorgeous red Amaryllis pots-I was only hoping for one thing. 15 minutes to myself!
I have exactly 20 minutes, more or less, after work- between the time I take off the"worker bee, box unpack-er, interior decorator, retail gal, friend to all, hat," and put on the "fun mommy, attentive wife, household keeper together-er, and general cleaner upper, hat." I CHERISH a rest, I am not complaining, I love my terrific job. Its a blast but mommy needed to sit down for heavens sakes!!
You could have knocked me over with a feather when I opened my mail closet to find a good friend lying at my feet among the bills and the junk mail, it was VICTORIA! I knew that she was in the works, I got a pre subscribtion solitation in the mail a few months prior, but today she caught me totally off guard and boy, was she a refresher. Still taking fantastic photographs and wearing the most beautiful stylish clothes (my friend cottagenest jenn will love) I was so happy to see her, guess what, I didnt even sit down for my break, I whisked myself to the kitchen, poured myself a wonderful glass of merlot and stood at the counter and savored a few moments of my precious moments with a long lost good friend, its like she hasnt left!
Do youself a favor, if you havent already, go and have a visit with a long lost friend. Shes back and better than ever and waiting at your favorite news stand for you to come and pick her up! You'll be glad you did. Have a great day, girlfriends!
