Poor Ren.

Elaina's friend Connie has a little (male) Chihuahua named Ren. They somehow wrangled him into Elaina's doll clothes and his eyes just seem to plead for an end to the abuse.

Make a run for the border, little Ren! Escape and be free!

A Tribute to Friendship

Melissa and I have known each other since we were five. We know so much about each other and have been through so much--so when she came to visit me last weekend from Phoenix, it was like we were back in high school again! We stayed up talking every night, went shopping, and ate way too much ice cream and Tucanos!

In many ways we're so much alike...

In other ways, we're very different. Melissa is so glam and fabulous and I'm so...not.

It's all the similarities and differences that make friendship so wonderful, isn't it? I'm thinking of Melissa and all of you who might read my blog with all of your individual personalities, and all the things that make your friendships valuable to me, and I'm just grateful. So grateful!

Thanks for coming to visit, Melissa! Here's to good times and good friends!
