#BloggersTalkingAbout Friendship

Good friendships are one of life’s treasures. Never take them for granted and treat them with love and respect. I’ve been fortunate to have some amazing friends in my life, online and offline. My longest friend is someone I met when I was 12. At the time, I was friends with her brother. We started hanging out when I was 14 (she was 17 at the time). We’re still friends all these years later and even though I moved from Brooklyn we are still close and keep in constant contact.

For my family and I, we had a change of plans this year and if you read my Facebook status you know why. lol We watched the Thanksgiving Day parade like we do ever year. I loved how they spotlighted the woman who had volunteered in the parade for the last 60 years! What awesome stories she must have! Setting my Thanksgiving table is my favorite part of the day because I get to use my mother’s tablecloth, which I love. Like I said in my Facebook post, we had one of our favorite meals which is spaghetti with white clam sauce and clams. I also made mozzarella bread which was […] Continue reading »

We’re having a summer blog hop in my blogging group and this month’s topic is to write about famous people we’ve met.

I wasn’t born when they were popular but when I […] Continue reading »
