This week, the Today show did a segment about the importance of women friendships. That has become a THEME for me this summer. And I was not surprised when they said having women friends in your life is like medicine. If you have the right kind of friends -- they can be better than therapy or Prozac!!
You know I am a big fan of avoiding Prozac.... So it's always a joy to spend some time with one of my best friends -- Mary Mulari.
|Last week, here's Mary's little head -- at the opening gala for the Babylock convention!|
|Mary, spending some time with me in the Schmetz booth. Yes, that is a cupcake wrapper...|
|As a rule, Mary has some pretty annoying healthy eating habits...|
|Here we are, meeting new people, making new friends...|
On the last day of the convention -- Wednesday -- we had some free time We decided to explore St. Louis. It was a very hot day...but as we left the Hyatt -- there were some spectacular views...
|I love the reflection of the capitol in the building across the street...|
|This was my attempt to get a picture of the iconic St. Louis ARCH...|
My picture-taking skills are marginal (which is an exaggeration). But even when a picture sucks, I look at it and it takes me right back to the moment. However, I would like a picture of the TWO of us....so I looked around, hoping for a bystander.... Two guys were walking towards us...I asked and one guy took my little camera while the other guy was discussing the problem of having a "backlit shot". WHA?? The guy with the camera kneeled down to take THIS wonderful picture....
Yep. More Ritaluck...and WAIT TILL YOU SEE WHERE WE SPENT OUR MORNING...
Thanks, Mary, for another wonderful time.
