Saying Good-Bye

Friday, July 11, 2008 |
It's never easy saying good-bye to good friends. Our friends are moving next week to their new duty station in the mid-west. We will miss them. Our girls are the same age and we have lots in common so a bond was quickly built. Somehow our husbands were gone around the same times so we had some great adventures together! I will miss Jennifer's no-nonsense and matter of fact personality. Not to mention the free medical advice ; )

I am hosting her farewell this evening. It's a beautiful day here in southern Connecticut so we will be able to enjoy our new patio. We are starting off with brie {a staple around here} with a fresh fruit salsa. For the main course we are having Agapi Salad and my new find - roasted garlic ciabatta bread. It's even better when you serve it with additional roasted garlic and whipped butter. This is NOT the evening to count calories! This salad is amazing - I copied it for the local Greek restaurant. Due to the abundance of blueberries, I made a blueberry and peach cobbler for dessert. Not to mention that the wine cooler is stocked and ready to go!

I hope Jennifer enjoys a relaxing evening with her friends before the packers arrive to pack her and her family out.

Fair Wind and Following Seas!

Hello Jo, and greetings from the Midwest!

The look of the blog is really outstanding, very clean and elegant. Good luck with it; you're a good writer, so I know it will be fun to read!

Hope tonight's festivities go well... I know how hard it is to say good-bye to friends.
