My Sweet Friend Tina
I had dinner last night with Tina from Fat Girl Dives In. Can I tell you how much I love this girl? She's so much fun to be with...so easy to talk to...so down-to-earth, funny...no pretenses...just one of those genuine, caring people. Well last night I discovered another adjective to use when describing her...thoughtful. She brought me a gift to dinner, and I brought her one as well. I gave her 3 little loaves of Christmas bread in a basket with a holiday cup and hot chocolate to enjoy. She gave me 2 big bags of FRESH PRODUCE from the Farmer's Market. She had read a blog post I wrote a couple of weeks ago saying I wouldn't be buying any groceries this month because I needed every last penny to buy Christmas gifts for my family and Dwayne and Scarlette. I wrote that I had plenty of food in the freezer and pantry to make it through the month....it just wouldn't be very balanced with no fresh produce. So that was her Christmas gift to me....just so thoughtful...makes me want to cry!!! I love my gift...and brought some fruit with me to work today....fresh fruit...oh how I've missed you!! I also have some fresh veggies at home now that I get to cook up later tonight after my dinner with my other awesome friend, Kim. I'm very blessed and thankful to have such good friends in my life...and I want everyone else to know just how awesome they are, too. :)
