A Bird, A Best Friend and Beautiful Blooms

I must say that this has been the longest Winter that I have ever experienced.  Don't get me wrong I am all for enjoying what each season has to offer. I even enjoy a good snowstorm.  The kind of storm that keeps everyone inside with a cup of hot coffee and a good book (or in my case a good craft magazine).  But oh my goodness enough is enough already!! I have shared in past posts about my poor snow driving skills and everyone who knows me is aware of the fact that I don't go anywhere if there is a threat of snow. At the rate things are going,  I really didn't think I was going to get out in civilization until July.  Until today...we actually had a day where the dreaded white stuff was not falling from the sky.  My best friend Heidi and I had made plans at the beginning of February to have lunch which was of course cancelled due to snow.  We decided to take advantage of today's weather and spend the afternoon together.  Heidi and I are more like sisters --having known eachother all of our lives.  We lived right next door to eachother from birth and have stayed friends to this day.  We have been through so much together--happy times as well as sad.  I truly don't know what my life would be like without her in it. 
This is my favorite picture of us growing up.  I am the shabby chic dresser on the left and Heidi is the proper pulled together one on the right. 
We had the nicest afternoon.  First a relaxing lunch and then a little shopping at the cutest gift shop.  They have the most wonderful seasonal merchandise and with our need for Spring we couldn't wait to get inside.  We were definitely not disappointed.  Just look at this silly little bird I found.  I love the decoupaged book pages. 
We each needed a few things from the grocery store so we decided to go shopping together.  We just could not leave without taking one of these beautiful primroses home with us.
After this lovely afternoon I feel like a whole new girl.  Just what the doctor ordered to chase away these stir crazy Winter blues.
