A great reminder of the importance of friends!

jeanette from everton terrace said...

Completely agree. Got to spend the afternoon with my lifelong best friend yesterday (she lives out of state) and there is just nothing like it.
All three girls are gorgeous!

How sweet that you and Saskia did a magazine swap. I'm sure you enjoyed your day of "fishing". Best wishes for your weekend -- whether it is spent with family or friends. :) Tammy

Amanda said...

gotta love friends like that :)

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

What precious memories!
I have a photo of 'the tin foil girls' that I bring out on occasion~ just to remind these grown up girls what it's like to giggle.

Pamela said...

I couldn't agree more Koralee!
The hardest thing about moving for me was leaving my best girlfriends. It took half my life to find them and then after a few years of having them...we had to leave. Thank goodness for email and FB.
I love this photo of your daughter. So refreshing to see teenages acting silly nilly instead of tough and cool!
Hope your having a wonderful summer!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Ah...the awesome club to belong to, to remember and to revisit if time allows. Thank you dear one, for coming with words of such praise and encouragement. Doesn't moving things, tearing things down and rebuilding and painting just make your skin tingle with delight? I truly believe that our Creator did make us in His image.....CREATORS of wonder and beauty!!! YIPPEEEEE! Make it happen my sweet bluebird of happiness!

Have an awesome weekend! Anita

I agree! and what a cute photo!

Maria said...

Koralee! I love this photo of your daughter and her friends :D
We have some hysterical ones of my girls + best friends too!

I just spent almost 2 hours on the phone with my sister ... we were perusing old, old photos of our mother that were just recently discovered by our mom's very best friend.
She sent them on to my older brother {her Godson} and we are FEASTING our eyes on them all!
Although our mother passed away almost 32 yrs ago, this special woman is indeed still a very best friend to her ♥
What a treasure!

~Wishing you the very best always~

Martina said...

Such a sweet, sweet picture! Aw, who says, teenagers are just difficult? They are like raw eggs sometimes, but also they are so special. Isn't it fun to see how the kids develop - and be a teenager yourself again sometimes?
Thanks for your lovely visit - if you send me your adress, i'll send you a magazine! xx, M.

How lovely, your daughter is beautiful, just like you! I am off soon on a little holiday with all my best girlfriends, we have been friends since kindergarten and we are all now in our mid 40's , they are such treasured gifts in my life.

Carousel Dreams said...

Great shot Koralee! My daughter had girlfriends over last night for a sleepover and they got into the dress-ups and did a photo-shoot...can't wait to see the pics...he he. Aaaahhh, to be young again. Oh, and a quote I found the other day which I loved - "A good friend is one who knows you are a good egg, even though you're slightly cracked. Love it!

Sue said...

Hi Koralee,

Have a wonderful weekend

I Love Pretty Little Things said...

Hi Koralee!
That picture is too, too cute! And, your quote is so true! I just left my buddy who was very hard for me to leave.

Those true sister friends are so hard to find, and yes, so hard to leave and never to be forgotten. I have been so blessed with a sister friend like that!

As always, a very, very Pretty Friday Post. :)
Love, Joyce

GardenOfDaisies said...

I agree! My best girl friend is originally from B.C. :-) We have known each other since we were two years old.

Marilyn Miller said...

So very true. How delightful to see the picture of good friends.

Hello Koralee andf a happy weekend to you and your lovely family! Such a fun photograph - I love it in black and white, they remind me of the sleep over in Grease!
