Once upon a time I lived in Alberta. (yes. the bald prairie. although I beg to differ that they were bald. but that is a whole different story.)and on the prairie land there are pretty much only bumpy, gravel roads (mind you not at all fit for a California babied GMC.) and where the house is that I have lived in most of my life, a gravel road is but a stones throw from the front porch. and on down that gravel road if you walk up a little hill and down one and than back up you'd get to portion of the road that is shaded with some big trees... and if you'd look up through those trees you would see a charming, welcoming cream house with green trim, and country porch looking down at you. and in that house would be living the worlds best neighbors... and those neighbors they raised 2 girls. and the oldest of those girls is -yes. my dear friend. She is admired by me, plus many, many others for- well A LOT of things. She is one of the greatest, strongest, most beautiful woman I know. ( besides my own mother of course!!) She married a wonderful man and now they have a charming little girl. and after having that lil babes my friend started this blog.
