scottylover
is the next person who will be receiving a thank you package from us

we are thankful for all of you

today I had the great opportunity to be with a friend
that moved across the ocean
well
don't feel too bad for her
she moved to
Hawaii
but I really love our 'new tradition' of a day of
gift shopping
lunch
stories
during her visit to the mainland
for the holidays
sure I miss the days when she lived just a few streets away
and would pop over unexpectedly for coffee
but
seeing her during the holidays for this gift shopping + lunch + talk day
once a year
is a perfect way to say
hello, I miss you, so great to be with you during the holidays

this is why I wanted to have a
Countdown to Christmas

because I don't always get to see all of you
we may only touch base
a few times a year

I wanted to say
great to be with you during the holidays

please leave us a comment, tell us a spirit of the season
story
about someone you may only see once or twice a year
someone you treasure

leave a note for us on facebook
or post a cookie recipe on the fb page
or tell a friend!

remember, we still have sale items on the shop site

Love what you did with the succulents! It's no so much the people I only see once or twice a year that warm my heart at Christmas, it's the cards I get and send ... reaching out across the years is what keeps me writing all those cards!

I have recently re established contact with a friend I haven't heard from for several years - I'm looking forward to meeting up with her in the New Year!

I have a "second mom" that I love dearly and only see her once or twice a year. She has always taken me under her wing since I was a girl and when my own mother passed away a few years ago, my second mom was there by my side.

When I moved to another state 13 years ago, I left behind a good friend, but we call each other and occasionally we get together. No matter how long in between calls and visits, we just pick up our friendship as if we had just seen each other recently. After I learned to quilt, I introduced her to quilting and she has really embraced it too.

I am from NY and now live in CA, so ther are a few people I connect with by phone and email in NY. When I go to visit it is like I never left. God friends pick up as if they saw one another yesterday even though it may be many months between contact.
