A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down.
Arnold Glasow

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.
Flavia Weedn

A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.

    Nothing like the delight of unconditional, supportive and transparent friendships, a place where you don’t feel the pull to guard and censor your quirks or foibles and can just be who you are and be loved with mutuality. Yep. That’s nice when you can say you have that in your life. Lovely food photos, Annie.

    Such a lovely post, Annie. All that food has me so hungry. Nothing better than sharing good food with good friends. I’m thankful to “know” you. xoxo

    I love any reason you call :)

    I’m grateful to know you too, Debbie! Maybe one day in real life… I’ve been meaning to come out east again…. sigh… one day…

    Paxye, you know I was talking about you a lot here. Aren’t you so glad your thanksgiving this year wasn’t punctuated with calls from me. Especially annoying with the time difference, I’m sure. There’s always the winter holiday though… We’ll have to plan to celebrate turkey supper on different nights.

    So beautifully conveyed…your post , the warm photos full of friends and food, Krista’s and everyone’s comments…all summed up so wonderfully that I can only say my heart feels gratitude too, for all of the beauty you share so freely with the world. The ripples travel outwards and are received with delight.

    It goes both ways, Shannon. That’s the best part of friendship (and food and recipe sharing!)

    Thank you, Erin. You summed things up nicely as well!

    What a lovely post. Sad we couldn’t share a supper this week, but it’ll happen (I made a thai curry, and look forward to sharing one with you when you do come!)
