Saturday morning we went for breakfast and then down to State Street where all the quaint little shops were waiting for us to browse through their fascinating and wonderous offerings. I don't have to tell you that Sharon and I picked up some pretty fantastic pieces. Which brings me to these . . .
The weather was so fine on Saturday and with it being Halloween, all kinds of people were out enjoying the day. A lot of people were dressed in their costumes which made people watching that much more, ah, interesting.
After State Street we came home for a much needed rest and then it was time to get ready for our evening of Halloween fun! I dressed as a witch, Brian as Robin Hood and Sharon as a washed up beauty queen. I have to tell you though that she's much too pretty to be 'washed up' and try as she might, she was still pretty! We had a wonderful evening of dancing and frivolity and there were some fantastic costumes. Needless to say, I stayed up way past my bedtime, but fell into bed happy, albeit with sore feet.
Most of the pictures taken during the weekend were on Sharon's camera, and she promised me she'd send them along . . . after she recovers! LOL!
It took Bijou until Sunday to warm up to Sharon and they were both nervous and thrilled to make a new friend . . .
Monday morning came much too quickly and time for Sharon to return home. It was so hard to say goodbye as we had such a wonderful time and have so much in common . . . not to mention that we could talk and talk for hours and hours. We departed each other's company, but are left with happy memories and the knowledge that we've become the best of friends. We're eagerly anticipating our next meeting ~ which for my part can't come soon enough!
I also want to acknowledge my darling husband in all this ~ he's the one who arranged the whole weekend ~ from emailing Sharon secretly, to patiently escorting us around State Street, and being our body guard and designated driver on Saturday night. And did I mention those heavenly fresh baked chocolate chip cookies? Oh yeah, baby! There is no one else in the world like him and I love him dearly . . . Brian life is so much sweeter with you in it . . . I love you!
