I had a most delicious weekend with two of my oldest & dearest friends.

I’ve known Tam since we were in grade 3 and Gracie since grade 5.

Anytime we get together it’s simply soul cleansing fun.

It was Tam’s birthday last week and Gracie’s birthday in a couple of weeks, so we  had some fun celebrating 35!

Here’s what we got up to…
