I have a friend by the name of Antoinette. When we first met, her smile lit up the room and I was immediately drawn to her friendly face. I believed we would have a friendship and that is exactly what happened. Our conversations are always good, like a warm cup of tea. Listening...well, listening is very important to any relationship and we hold that key.
Below are some photos that were taken at her youngest daughters' wedding, this past July 3rd. For reference: the bride is Donna and the groom is Doug. Antoinette's husband is Bob, her eldest daughter and Maid of Honor is Gina, Gina's husband is Brian, and let us not forget Marty, the dog. :)
A handsome family they do make.
An exciting time between Mother and daughters!
A beautiful day for a lovely bride and her family!

Celebrating July 4th with the Newlyweds!
It is an absolute pleasure to share these joyous moments with Antoinette. We are always happy for each other when all is bright. We are also there for each other when dark clouds roll in. She has good judgment and insight of knowing what to say and when to say it.
Her generosity of heart can fill a house, and she gives of herself everyday with her bright smile and twinkling blue eyes. I love her, as do many people.
Antoinette carries the legacy of her Father with her, as I do with my Dad, and we share this wonderful commonality. The photos I have seen of her Dad makes me think I missed out knowing him. However, through Antoinette, I do know him, and that makes me glad. She tells wonderful stories about a great man, and it's always with a smile and a slight tear.
Am I confident we will continue to grow together as we embrace the years to come? You can count on it. Friendship is inmeasureable!
