F is for FRIENDS and I have some of the best!

F is for fantastic friends!

On February 6, several friends met at an Italian restaurant to celebrate their friendship and to enjoy the frivolity of the afternoon. My dear friend, Robin Fritz, organized the entire event, did all the decorating, supplied the favors and even paid for the luncheon! She has the most creative ideas, and she holds our group together with her love, humor, and the biggest heart on the planet! You all need a "Robin" to be friends with!

Flowers were used as centerpieces along with the cutest garland and display of cupcakes.
Each place setting had a cute, frilly doily, a bottle of red nail polish, notes and chocolate heart candy.

Our friendship table where 12 friends came together to dine, laugh, cry and share.
We have quite a diverse group with some ladies as new moms and some of us have grandchildren! Most of us are involved in education ranging from early childhood daycare to an assistant principal! Actually 10 out of 12 of us are/were teachers and 2 work at our local library.
I hope today's letter "F" inspires you to love your friends and celebrate your friendships quite often.

Mrs. Matlock, our teacher, has her class do a different letter of the alphabet every Thursday-Friday, so join in on the fun or just visit other students who participate in the letter jamboree.

There is a quote that says, "Friends are the flowers in the garden of life." Looks like you and your friends enjoyed a wonderful party together. I adore spending time with my friends too.

I so agree with you! Friends are the icing on the cupcakes of life! We have a bunko group that has been meeting for over 18 years and I just love how we take the extra time to make them special! I also have a friend that I was in college with and we are doing a girl's wine tasting party. Friends are so important!
