Today I will attend the Bridal Shower for the 2nd friend I made when i moved to Ohio in 1989. She used to live across the street from me and I remember finding her outside playing with her sister and neighbor. They had these stuffed monkeys and the monkeys were swinging through the tree. We spent a lot of time together during elementary school. When I entered middle school her step father moved their family to the country so I didn’t get to see her as much. We stayed in touch and then when I was in college her mother moved back to the same town we grew up in and I got her cell phone number (the key to all successful relationships! 😉 ) She now resides in VA and I see her at Christmas time – which is also her bday time – each year and we talk periodically on the phone.
When I first moved to DC she helped me through a number of things because for me she has always been a pillar of faith that I could talk and she is never judgemental. I love her dearly for this. In July she will marry the man she loves and I cuoldn’t be happier for her. I really wanted to make something special for her wedding day (and I still plan to… must cast on!). Alas, I was at a complete loss as to what to make her for her bridal shower. I finally settled on a washcloth set. I made the Thick and Thirsty Backscrubber, the Tribble by 1870pearl and a simple washcloth. I really hope she enjoys them. The pictures below aren’t the best but sometimes utility is hard to photograph. (That’s my story and I am sticking to it!)
Congratulations Courtney. I wish you all the happiness in this world and the next. You deserve it.
