When our friends said they were stopping in on their way to a convention, we were excited. Bill and Emily are dear – and when I say dear, I mean DEAR – friends. They are the kind of people who open their home to a high school senior when her family has to move four hours away just so she won’t have to leave familiar ground and just so she can graduate in the only school system she ever attended.
Yes, that is our precious Bill and Emily and that high school senior was our baby girl. We love them for even so many more reasons and are blessed God allowed our paths to cross.
So we were giddy when they said they would be passing through! We would visit, go to dinner and introduce them to Baby Beluga.
Just before we went outside, Bill and Emily gave us a beautiful array of camellias – a deep red, just stunning! I wish I’d photographed them that day because I have been enjoying them tremendously and they are just a wee droopy by now.
And then they gave us these:
Sizemore pottery!!! Our friends and favorite potters, the Sizemore family, make amazing pieces and we cherish every one. These will be even more special having come from our friends.
The Sizemore’s are from Newnan, Ga and have an impressive studio adjacent to their home. Dale and Nancy’s sons James and Daniel followed in their parent’s artistic steps, and together, this family creates amazing works.
We are so honored that Baby’s first gifts are Sizemore creations and that they came from Bill and Emily.
Precious. Precious. Precious.
And we are blessed once again.
