Good morning Wilna!
Another FABULOUS page in your journal!!!

My best friend is Susan - there are times we think the same extra thing at the same time - we live 7 hours apart. An email will come just seconds after I've sent the same email - scary sometimes!!!
She seems to know when I need more emails and the same for me about her. She is a mother of 5, plus a foster Mom to 3 and owns/operates her own quilting store!!! We met online 6.5 years ago and have met in persons tons of times since - whenever I can get to Edmonton.
She is the BESTEST ever!!!

Lisa G said...

YEA!! I can't believe it, tell mama' thanks :) and thank you for being so generous to give these raks.
Don't enter my name again but I wanted to comment anyway because you, my dear Mrs. Darcy, are my bff. You have brought so much to my life in the past year that you dont even know. This is proof that you dont have to actually know your bff in person to love them so dearly. I treasure you and appreciate you more then any jewel that I own, and that comes from the very bottom of my he{art} ;)

So glad you enjoyed my blog entry for today, lol. You know me better. I almost gave my mil a heart attack. She said she was in tears when she was reading it. I didn't mean to scare her that bad, (shrug)

I will email you my new addy.

My best friend is Stacy. We met through a mutual friend 18 years ago when I was in need of a roommate in college. We were both graphic design majors and ended up having a lot in common.
I don't get to see her as often as I'd like, but we talk often on the phone, usually for over an hour at a time!
Stacy's always doing for others... she's very involved with her kids' schools and she is a co-owner of a scrapbook store, so that keeps her very busy!
I'm so glad we met back in college, I couldn't imagine life without my BFF!!!! :-)

Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous page!!!

My best friend's name is Tami. You can see her in my two most recent blog postings if you click on my name (before I update again)!

Tami and I have known each other for ten years. Our husbands became bext friends first. About five years into our friendship both of us couples had the similar life-altering experiences, and we began hanging out together 1-3 times a week, swapping stories and sharing experiences (in regard to the life-alteration).

We go to Mexico once to twice a year together, but hope to broaden our horizons by picking a different place come springtime!

Hi Wilna

My best friend is my wonderful sister Susana. She is so special and precious, she is honest and trustworthy & has always been my strengh trough the tough times. I love her dearly and always will.

Lots of Love

Lisa Stead said...

Well truthfully my best friend in the entire world is my hubby, Michael. I was told when I was quite young to make sure that I married my best friend when I grew I always determined to do just that. There is no one that I talk to and rely on like him. While I do have many other friends, I have none that I would declare to be my best friend outside of him. He's the best!

As for slowing down...haha, I wish! Wilna, I've been crazy busy lately! I don't think I ever told you that I bake and sell trays of baking at Christmas my house is currently stacked full of trays and baking everywhere. This has been a record breaking year for me so I've been incredibly busy. Unfortunately I won't slow down till the 23rd...but then Mike has a week off and I'm refusing to do any work then - Woohoo! I can't wait to relax with my family this Christmas :D

Ok, 'nuff chatter...hope you're having a great day!!!

I would have to say my husband is my best friend, but of my "girl" friends I would have to say Jeniece, we have known each other for about 2 years, but alot closer this past year. She is the only other scrapper who understands completely my scrapbook obsession, and she only understands it because she is just as crazy about it, and when we crop together we do our best work!! She is just fun to be around!! and a crazy sense of Staci Cal

Anna-Marie Still said...

My BFF is my dear Sharie who live across the country from me also - that girl is good for my soul!

Barbara Zea said...

My bff is Jon (DH). We've known each other since high school....graduated 10 yrs ago. Got married 2 yrs ago. He is the best. He is kind, loving, just a great person...
Looking forward to the rest of the days! I might have to scrapbook my responses! LOL!

Hi Wilna
My best friend has most definitely got to be my husband. I love him to bits and he understands me like no one else can. I couldn't imagine a life without him. I enjoy spending time with him.

Joyous said...

My BFF is my husband, I can't go a day without him, and I look forward ALL day to him getting home from work so that we can eat together or watch a movie or snuggle, he is the best person I've ever known!

elizabeth said...

Such fun questions, Wilna!

I'd have to say that I honestly have a few BFF that came into my life at different times and stages. Really. I have a childhood friend that I grew up with, a met-in-middle school and talk on the phone three times a week still friend, a first year teacher best friend, a best scrapbooking friend, and of course, Matt : ) I'm lucky that they all play such an important and active part of my lives to this day : )

elizabeth said...

er, that should say my LIFE. i do not have multiple lives. eeek. ; )

Marla said...

Wilna I just love this!!!! Feeling bet! My best friend is my mom. Honestly, we talk everyday about anything - even though we only live miles apart. I can tell her anything and she is there to support me all of the time! It's one of the most special friendships in my life right now.

From the Heart said...
