|Beth (right) and me|
We were friends and neighbors for 10 years, then we both moved to new locations, again, within three months of each other. Beth moved further west for better schools for her children and I moved back to Chicago to be closer to my family. The miles between us have not altered the friendship.
One thing we have in common is our love of warm weather, blue skies and beautiful beaches. My dream would be to live near Keawekapu beach in Maui, Hawaii. Beth's dream location is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Dreams are wonderful, but if they come true there will be even more miles between us, however, I suspect that travel arrangements could be made.
For Christmas this year, I am sending her a little beach of her own. I had so much fun making beach cookies last summer that I decided to fashion it into a tree for the Christmas season.
Merry Christmas friend. I wish you peace, joy, love and dreams of warm beaches. . .
