Girl Time Tuesday-#7

Our seventh Tuesday together.  Wow!


I love this time with y’all just sharing and chatting a little.


My post today is going to be a wee bit different because I will only be sharing one blog with you.


The thing is,  most of you already know this wonderfully talented lady.  But just in case you don’t know her, then you are in for a real treat.  Like a REAL BIG treat…


The sweet friend I want to share with you today is Becky from Buckets of Burlap.

Yep, I agree with you….gorgeous kitchen.

Living room, too…gorgeous.


Actually, Becky’s entire home is fabulous! 


This lady has talent that oozes from her.  It comes naturally.


Her husband, Mr. Buckets of Burlap, has just as much talent. 


Together, they make a magnificent pair.


Now, I want to let you know a little about my relationship with Becky and her family.


You see, this family has become our family.


Becky is not just a blogging friend.  She has become like a sister. 


She understands me and I understand her.  We “get” each other. 


Our families love each other.  Our kids love each other.  We are a good match.


Blogging for me has been a wonderful experience in so many ways, but I have to say that meeting Becky and her family has been, by far, the greatest reward.


Okay…want to know something really cool…


If you are reading this on the day that it was posted, then I am right now headed to Louisiana for a week long vacation with Becky and her family in her beautiful farmhouse.

Want to know what I am excited about?


…sitting on her deck and drinking coffee


…eating her delicious homemade chocolate chip cookies


…playing crazy games sitting around her coffee table


…going shopping


…talking, laughing, probably crying, staying up late, browsing other people’s blogs, watching our kids laugh and play together


…oh, I could go on and on, but I won’t.


Pray for safe travels for us, please.


Blessings to you all!!!

I love Becky's blog and her home is beautiful as is yours.
I think it is wonderful that you've found a friend/sister in each other. I remember reading in the past how y'all have connected and have visited each other's homes. Blogging is wonderful in that it does bring people together.
Praying for safe travels and Good times!

I hope you all have such a wonderful time! I remember when you met each other for the first time. Guess that makes me a real old timer around here, huh?

And I agree about her gift. Incredible.
