Fun Monday...

Our host this week is Willowtree. His assignment:"Tell us about your best friend. Particularly things like: where you first met, how long you've been friends and why you think you are best friends."

My best friend is Terri... she and I met 6 years ago when I went to her clinic for physical therapy. We became instant friends. Over the years, we have enjoyed so many things... most of all travel. We've taken trips to Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Scotland, Ireland, Australia... and all over the US. We do most everything together... people say we are two peas in a pod.

Why are we best friends? I think that Terri is the only one who knows the "complete" me and is willing to put up with me and my faults... just as I put up with hers. We have similiar values and feelings about life and how it should be lived.

We have so much fun together... we laugh a lot!! We have an great understanding of one another... and are there for each other no matter what. So... here is a photo snippet of our friendship...


Here we are in the early days getting ready for a

night on the the town.


Here we are outside the coliseum in Rome.




In front of a castle in Scotland.




Overlooking the "grand canyon" of Yellowstone.



On the coast of Australia.





Tailgating at a Michigan State University Football game.




Visiting Mount Rushmore.



Being silly at my birthday party!

She is truly a gift that I have been given...
and I cherish our friendship.

I cannot imagine a true friendship without this quality, "is willing to put up with me and my faults... just as I put up with hers."

I love your pictures. You must have some good stories about your travels as well.

Wow, you have been to so many fun places together. I have to say that when you travel with someone, you found out what they are really made of...especially when things don't go right.

Reading all of these makes me miss my best friend. I didn't talk to her the entire vacation. She is getting a phone call first thing in the morning!!!

That is great you can travel together!

Wow! So many wonderful backdrops. How wonderful to have such a good friend, and also have someone to travel with. I'm hoping one day when the kids are older that my friends and I do sme travelling like that together.
