Roxie is, without a doubt all that you've imagined her to be and more! Her eyes twinkle as she speaks, she is full of energy and she has a genuine concern for your happiness and welfare.

This photo of Roxie is at our meet and greet at a neighborhood convenient mart near my hometown.... Followed by a jaunt to my "fav" Coffee Shop for a cup of java to help make the last 25 minute trip to my little village a bit more bearable ... I suggested taking a few minutes to sip coffee and get to know each other before heading home. lol!! Those few minutes became hours at the coffee shop. If my hubby hadn't called to check on us, we just might still be there! After arriving home, Roxie presented me with this sweet gift! Beautiful file folders to help me stay organized with my "New Biz" And another surprise, but that is for another day.....
The rest of the day was a blur... we laughed so much my cheeks hurt! Then we laughed some more! We inspired each other that afternoon and couldn't help but spend a few hours perfecting our "inspiration"... There was no stopping us! It felt so comfortable to work with Roxie, as if we've done this for years. I can't imagine what a dynamic duo we could be together if we lived closer~ Working at my desk with Roxie almost seemed surreal at times...I asked hubby to chronicle this moment by taking a photo! Can you see how inspired we look? Or could it be all the caffeine we consumed?
I had the pleasure of learning so much about Roxie that day. For instance, we both are "the middle child," in our families, each with 3 sisters and 1 brother... How great is that! I discovered Roxie loves sweets, but medically, she can't have sugar. Unfortunately, that bit of information didn't become evident until after I offered her the gooiest "Snicker Cake" for dessert. To add insult to injury, the cake was displayed so pretty on the kitchen table. She is so easy going, she simply made a joke about the cake, which sat inches from her, tempting her all day.. I feel so comfortable with Rox that I know I can tease with her and she really gets it!... Rox, I've been doing my best to take care of that problem for you!! I should have it whipped by the end of the day... hee-hee~

The hours went by so quickly, by late evening I suggested she sleep over, but she needed to get home to her sweet family.

I realized I had been a terrible host and forgot to feed her dinner!! lol.. So before sending my friend home, my husband grilled hamburgers for us. Since it was so late, I kept our menu as comfortable as our guest had made us feel.. Come to think of it, that is a great way to describe Sweet Roxie!!

~ She is like a picnic on a Sunday afternoon~
I made a great friend that day and look forward to many sweet moments like these again soon! I can't wait to meet at the Gift Mart in DC, we will have a ball. shopping together! Until we meet again my friend....



Thank you Rox, you definitely Rock!

OXOXOXO

Me again. :)) Sounds like you are North of Roxie and I am south of her. Just outside Richmond, Va. Joyce lives real close by too. Wouldn't it be great for all of us to meet ....say somewhere like Carytown in Richmond. Very fun place to shop, antique, eat, eat, eat, antique. LOL...maybe someday soon.

That is so great you two got together. I wish we could all meet one day. We would need more than just a day or two. There are way too many fun personalities in this group! How would any of us get a word in edgewise? I know it would be fun trying!

I'm so happy for you and Roxie, Michelle. xoxo, Cath
