Friendship and Gifts

Yesterday I met friends for breakfast at Ayyame.  
Years ago, we were a group of 10-12 but many have left the country.
We hadn't seen each other since travelling for the summer. Susana went to Venezuela; Zainab went to Dubai and London; Elena went to Romania and Italy; I went to Sri Lanka and Germany; and Melissa went to Dubai.
   So there was lots of gift giving and catching up to do.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Oh this brings memories of a group of my friends that we call "The Lunch Bunch" Girls I grew up with, and now we are few. So sad.

Love your quote about friends being like stars... lovely.

Have a great day..just got back from my trip, so catching up.

There is nothing like good friends to make your day, in person or in blog land. So glad you were able to have a lovely time with people you care about.
Hugs,

I like the quote about friends being like stars. That looks like a fun group and lunch place; I meet friends for lunch every so often; it is good to chat and catch up.

I love that quote. I have lunch every Friday with my gal pals. Some have moved away but we always keep in touch. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Hi Tammy,

I couldn't survive without my friends, so I know how nice it is to visit with them.

Yes, those are my granddaughters on my blog. Alissa turned 10 last Friday - I can't believe it! I took her to Maryland for my neice's wedding. Ginny (the little one) was the flower girl and I just happened to get this great picture of them together. It was at a beautiful winery in the rolling hills near Pennsylvania. It's been an intense couple of weeks and I've thoroughly enjoyed being by myself all this weekend. Hope to get into a normal routine starting tomorrow.

Dearest Tammy,

Great post about warm friendship. As I write this comment, we just got back from an afternoon/evening with friends. Great food and catching up on several things. It is good for our souls. It rains outside, the more we cherish such hours together.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Hi Tammy, It looks like you had a wonderful meeting with your friends. You girls must have had a lot to talk about after each of you had travelled during the summer vacation to some exciting places.
Have a lovely week!
Hugs,
Julia

this is a nice post... i also have few Indo-Russian friends here, but we live way too far from each other to meet frequently. and that message about friends: my best friend gifted me a small magnet with the same. now she lives in another country, but yes, i know, that i have a friend there :)

Serena Lewis said...

A lovely post about friendships! So nice that you all caught up with each other, Tammy. xo

Dearest Tammy, the saying about friendship is so beautiful and so true! I also have made ​​friendships that are "scattered around the world", it is wonderful if you manage to meet each other sometimes!
And Nina and Maxwell like to thank Jingles for the Cats-award! (Funny idea :o)))! I myself do not take more awards, but my cats do that and feel very proud now! ;o))
Sweetest hugs to you, my dear, have a good new week (the first one in October ...),

It's lovely to have a group of friends that you are still close with and are able to meet with each other, they are truly very special relationships to have. It looks like you've been given some beautiful gifts Tammy, what thoughtful friends you have. I hope your weekend has been a wonderful one:)
