I love birthdays that keep

going on and on, just like this friendship with Patty that has survived seventy years now and keeps on giving... Patty arrived at my house carrying this beautiful bouquet of flowers...
and after she spent a generous amount of time pouring over my latest art journal; we set out for one of our favorite eateries for a birthday lunch...yeah sure...we split a half a chicken salad sandwich and ate it as quickly as possible so we could get to the goodies, the REAL REASON we had come here...
If these photos are a little reminiscent of my last years birthday celebration with Patty it's because it's the same place, same dessert a year later...
We both love gelato and this year we each had a cup with espresso and terimasu
and we each had a raspberry almond torte cookie
and both were so good!
Can you see my sugar high?
Thank you Patty for being you!
You can also see the very artsy funky necklace she gave me as a gift!
Having a best friend for seventy years is just the BEST!!!
Hugs and Kisses to you Patty!!!! THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIEND FOREVER
