My blogger friend Skipah’s Realm invited me to a 5 day challenge to join the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

I am doing the first part of the challenge, but I will not be nominating anyone. If you would like to participate and post your beautiful pictures go right on and do it 🙂

Friends come in all shapes, sizes and needs…  Being a transplant from another country had its handicaps for me.  Most of all was the “Not having life long friends” one.  I got on a plane one day, and just NEVER went back!!!  Did I plan that?  Nope!

The hubs had plenty of friends to share, and the one that has been and always will be a life long friend of mine is his college friend Chris B. 🙂  He is my second husband, we don’t see much of each other, but what is nice is when we do or when we chat on the phone it is as if we had just chatted yesterday.  Yes a girl can have a guy friend.  He rocks at being my friend, my stand in date, my go to person when the real hubs has pissed me off.  He talks me down and explains it from a guys perspective!

Then I have the girlfriends who have accepted me into their circle of friends, I have my track mum’s Chris P. and Debbie F. who oh my goodness just crack me up!!!  We root on our kids, we biaaaatch about our kids, and we have FUN together…..

I am a very lucky woman as in having some AMAZING neighbors that have become some of my most treasured friends…..  Carolyn, Janie, Pattie, Sue, Carol, Christine….  These women are just awesome, kind, funny, real, down to earth FANTASTIC women!!!!

Then there is my FRIEND Tamara K.  Here I am about to burst into tears, she will be leaving our fair state soon to start a new adventure with her family in NC!!!!  We will call, Skype, CALL….  CALL…..  I will be getting on a plane 🙂  Our friendship came late in life, but it is one that I will ALWAYS treasure, she is my saving Grace 🙂  She is my rock, she is an amazing woman, and I am PROUD to call her my friend 🙂

Going to miss our lunch dates girlfriend 🙂
