Girlfriends Make Me Laugh

I met three of my girlfriends that I went to high school with today for lunch.  We all had a great time eating, catching up, and laughing at old times.

My best friend is visiting from out of state, and all of us girls really miss her.  I hope she moves back to California some day.  I met her last weekend with the husbands included, and in this picture we were laughing over something funny that was said.

me on the right.

She bought me a gift for my birthday, which is in May, but she won't be here at the time, so she gave it to me now.  I loved it, and know the perfect place for it in my home.

I hope to get together with my friends again soon.   We have been through a lot together, and have known each other for many years.  We will continue to remain friends through the years, and hopefully grow old together.

I am SOOO jealous. I have not had any girlfriend time in a long time and I miss it. Family is wonderful but there is just something about girlfriends, isn't there?
Yuu girls are all beautiful...are you Lucy?;>) xo Diana

Ah, Sheri, which pretty lady are you? I cannot guess..
Your gift is so lovely, and I know you will treasure it. Girlfriends are essential to a happy life, imo. Yesterday one of mine accompanied me to the doctor - that's real friendship! Happy Easter, Sheri xxx

I am glad you were able to get together with them. Not sure which one you are, but all of you are so pretty!

Oh Sheri,
I so enjoy seeing this pretty picture of you with your friends!
Girlfriends tried and true are just the best!
I adore the hummingbird Limoge she gave you for your Birthday, the colors and intricate details are lovely.
Happy Easter, dear Sheri!

What a beautiful blessing to be so close to your girlfriends from High School - looks and sounds like you all had a lovely time :)

May you have a blessed Easter, sweet Sheri!

Mona said...

This is a wonderful post...seeing you and your girlfriends makes me a little jealous. I have been without any true girlfriends for so many years that it just feels normal now..I am sure my husband wishes that he was not my only friend..Life just gets too busy for most and I live in an area where most women work outside the home..and I don't..great are fortunate to have these women..
Love, Mona

LIFELONG friends are wonderful, indeed. You all look like you were having fun. The little hummingbird is precious. ENJOY!

What a delightful post, Sheri. There is nothing like the joy of getting together with friends, especially for us women. I treasure it. You look as lovely as ever.

Thank you for your kind comments on our Easter table. I have a few details to go but I wanted to post before Sunday to share good wishes with everyone. The napkins are from Pier 1, and I could not resist when I saw them.

Happy Easter and much love to you, Jess, Nel, and all your loved ones.

So happy for you!

Hi Sherri,

What a wonderful photo of you and your friends! I bet all of you had a "hoot" together. My girlfriend from high school will be here with her husband next Friday for a few days to visit. Husband and I introduced them 40 years ago. I am so anxious to see her. We always had such a fun and happy time when we were together.

I'll be sure to take some photos and show them in a blog post.

I love the sweet little gift your girlfriend brought you. So pretty. I'm glad all of you enjoyed yourselves.

Wishing you and your family a very happy Easter!
