Last week I posted about how important girlfriends can be and how lucky I am. I’m luckier than even I knew.
So on Saturday the girls picked me up. We went to get pedicures and facials. I think I may have fallen in love with facials. We had planned this weeks ago and after the last few weeks, I needed it. I realized that I hadn’t sat that still for months! I tried very hard to live in the moment and not let thoughts of work or theatre enter my brain. It was wonderful!
Truly I thought the pedicure and facial were birthday present enough! Yet they were far from finished and I had no idea. We went out to lunch at a fun local diner, and that was when they really through me for a loop. They pulled out a present! They weren’t supposed to bring presents! The day was MORE than enough. This is what happened:
First they took pictures and I have no makeup on so excuse me please. I open it up and am obviously shocked that they bought my picture. OK well it’s mine now. I’ve just been coveting it on Etsy for a very long time.
Then I cried. I truly didn’t expect this from them. I’m not a pretty crier. Sorry about that everyone! 🙂
I love this print of a painting by Natasha Wescoat. I never expected them to buy it for me. You can visit Natasha’s Etsy shop here.
I am very lucky to know these women and blessed to call them friends! Thanks for such a beautiful relaxing day!
(By the way, you know your true friends when you can get away with putting a picture of someone on your blog after you have been stripped of every ounce of make up and your hair has been massaged into weird angles 🙂 )
