The Gift of Love and Friendship

Last night we celebrated Christmas with D's family - we had a fabulous dinner at our favorite restaurant (complete with apple pie, of course!) and came back here to exchange presents. D really oudid herself. The first gift I opened wasn't exactly from her - it was from Coastie Bro, and it's a spoon from the place he was stationed so long! THANK YOU, Coastie Bro! You know I've been wanting one! Next I opened the cutest. mug. ever. D knows I drink hot tea every morning, and now I can drink it from my awesome Elvis Christmas mug - on the back it says "Merry Christmas, Baby!" I love it. But the last gift - well, it brought me to tears. D made a CD for me - the cover of it has our picture on it, and it is titled "Of Best Friends, Queen Sloths, & Apple Pie Splurges". And it has 20 songs of love and friendship on the CD - 20 songs she chose and downloaded just for me.



I am so blessed to have D in my life - to be my friend, my rock, my confidant. I love you, D. Merry Christmas.

And Merry Christmas to all you bloggers out there - and God bless us, every one.

I'm glad you loved it so! I was really starting to get concerned that it might be too cheesy. I had a lot of fun doing it for you tho!

I love you, too, Bubba's Sis! Merry Christmas. :*

BS, this is wow! Wow! I'm so glad for you, BS. So very glad you have such a beautiful friendship. And speaking of lovely, there are two very very lovely faces on the cover of that album. That's a little not-so-BS-like, isn't it? If I think I've caught my glimpses well enough, I believe you're the left side and she's right?

BS--thank you for your encouragement. I'll hold onto that, my friend. Tighter than you know. xoxoxoxo

Merry Christmas, God bless you, D, and all the people you love. (okay okay and the ones you don't love too)

And if you're on the left, don't cry and stuff, but I think you kind of look like me. At least our features are quite similar, right down to the shiny shiny dark hair! And D has GiGi's blue eyes. Thats it, final! We really need to get serious about a meetup, okay? xo

I'm really glad all of you liked your gifts and I know Bear and I loved ours that was really cool how you turned our pictures into magazine covers!

Bubba's Sis said...

Hee! Other way around, Stacey Girl - D is on the left, I'm on the right (with the blue eyes!).

D... said...

Yep, I'm the Brown-Eyed Girl! Now, not so much do I have the dark, shiny hair!

I told you, if you do Memphis this summer, a meetup is TOTALLY in the realm of possibility. Totally.

You two and your friendship bring tears to my eyes! You have such a beautiful and special friendship, and it is obvious that you both cherish. I think you both are absolutely fabulous!
