Pink Saturday

I am missing my dear friend Angie today.
We met almost 20 years ago at work.
At the time I was the receptionist at a Floral wholesaler and she was hired as a cashier, I "trained" her on the register and we became fast friends.

Angie and I at Niagara Park, Canada in October 2004 (PINK sweater and though in this photo you can't tell pink flowers too )
LONG story short, she moved to Missouri to take care of her grandad and later moved back to her original home in Illinois, we kept in touch, but had not seen each other in ages so in 2004 we decided to have  a trip, just the 2 of us. We decided to meet in western Pennsylvania, and we would figure it out from there...

Stayed there for a bit and decided we both wanted to see Niagara, so we took off and went north.
It was so beautiful! We walked all over the US and Canadian sides, took a tour, had a  lovely meals, watched glass be blown.... I could go on and on!
It is an amazing sight!
BEAUTIFUL day and night.
We did the Maid of the Mist trip around the falls, there are no words to describe the beauty of it.

We had a great time! It was lovely, she is a great friend and I enjoy her company. We need to get together again sometime. I do miss her so much.
I can't believe we have known each other near 20 years, her boys are all grown up and it seems just yesterday she was here and they were little :)
Love and miss you Angie. Kindred is what we are :)


  1. Sounds like that was a wonderful trip with some great memories. You've reminded me to get in touch with someone I haven't seen in a while and miss. Happy weekend.

  2. You have truly both been blessed knowing each other. A true friend will never let you down. They are there when no one else cares.

  3. Hello there! I love Niagra Falls, too--it is one of my favorite places. Did you notice the mist maidens dancing in the falls? Ah...makes me homesick to look at your lovely picture.

    Thank you for your encouraging comment on my art page. ((hugs)) You made my day--just the thought someone might want to purchase something I've drawn gives me goosebumps.

  4. Sounds like a wonderful friendship-something to really treasure!

  5. What a wonderful trip the two of you had together! I know exactly what you mean - I live in Ohio and my best friend of 20 years lives in California! Miss her a lot.

  6. I hope you and your dear friend are able to see each other again and soon! Family and friends ~ NOTHING more precious or important:)
