All I can say is wow

I have the best friend.  I met Stacy online when we found out we were traveling together to adopt our daughters in China.  We emailed each other frequently about what we should pack, how we felt, getting our children at home ready, etc.  When we finally met in China, we gave each other the biggest hug and were darn near inseparable throughout the two week trip.  It's been a year and a half since then and hardly a day goes by with an email (or twelve) between us.  I also try to get out to Las Vegas a few times a year to visit.  Sometimes, you just meet people that you really connect with.  Though she doesn't like to gamble, which is a shame, lol.

Anyway, I opened the door today expected some pictures from Shutterfly and look what I got instead. She sent me this sweet card.  I just love what she stamped on it!  And for the record Stacy, I don't know what I'd do without you in my life!

And it accompanied all this!!!

I don't know what I did to deserve all these fantastic goodies, but I do know that I'm the lucky one for having her in my life.  Thank you so much.  It brought tears to my eyes.

Aww how sweet! My best friend in the world I met online 13 years ago and she's actually the one who got me started on scrapbooking!! I blame her all the time for my living at the poverty level but with plenty of paper and glue! Kidding of course! She lived 5 hours away from me when we met but has since moved to Florida. I do get to see her when we travel, because we generally either go to Disney (she meets me there!) or take a cruise, so she will meet me at the cruise port for a short visit. I wish we could spend some time scrapping together though!
