A Lovely Day in The Life of Friends

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Grants Pass, OR 199909023

A Lovely Day in The Life of Friends.  After a very rough week of working on some difficult deals, attending one too many meetings, politicking and presentations, and receiving some sad news that a dear friend suffered a heart attack, this gal is one tuckered girl. 

Fortunately, today offered a little reprieve.  I had the luxury of relaxing in a limo with friends while touring some beautiful vineyards in Southern Oregon.  The sun was shining, the landscape was gorgeous and the company was engaging.  Thank you guys for bringing me out of my funk... love you!

Oh, KS, I'm so very, very glad that you had the opportunity to do this.  I looks like it was amazing.  I pray that your friend is going to be fine, and I'm so thankful that someone pampered you.  YOU DESERVE IT!

PS ~ Might I suggest that you crop the first picture in your post and use it as your profile pic?  It is absolutely ADORABLE :)

Melinda, the pictures are great and glad you had a break with friends that care.  Touring the vineyards in California was my favorite day off activity.  Here is to another lovely day tomorrow and to your friend getting better.

SHE's so lovely, Brian, that it doesn't really matter.  For some reason, I thought her KS was more apparent in the new one, but we fell in love with the old one, and lovely is lovely :)

Melinda - the vineyards in Southern Oregon are beautiful and I'm so glad you got out and enjoyed them in style - the way you deserve! Not surprised you have so many friends that love you in your every day life and on AR - you're a special person, down-to-earth, sweet and real! So glad we met in the Rain!

I like the top post pic too!

Melinda - looks like you got just what you needed - time to recoup with dear friends. I just told my daughter in law - who really has a great network of women friends - "we're only as strong as our estrogen connection."

Wine tastings and wintery/vineyard tours are always fun. Vineyard look so pretty when the vines are full of leaves andgrapes.

I love that garden. I could sit out there for hours on end and think of absolutely nothing to do except sit there for hours on end!
