The neatest surprise was meeting up with Ashley. We went to Middle School together. She always seemed like a very sweet girl, but we moved in different circles.....She was a cheerleader and I was (and still am) a nerd. She never came across as anything but nice in school, we just didn't really know each other. I must say she is one of the sweetest, most down to earth people I've had the joy of getting to know. Again, those nerves of mine were close to the surface. I wasn't sure if she'd even remember me or if she'd just remember how awkward and dorky I was - I still see myself as that skinny, nervous, awkward child even though I'm a grown woman. I spent quite a bit of time with her and have to say that she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside....and she's an absolute knock out.
I've been spending the time in the orthodontist waiting room working of Christmas gifts. The ripple blanket only gets worked on at home now because it's gotten too large to take anywhere. I'm about done with the granny square bag and hope to reveal it later this week. Until then, have a wonderful week and thanks for stopping by!
