Look Who Won!


Diane is the winner for the Pay-it-forward drawing and she will be receiving the book that I just finished for Bloggy Book Club! Congrats!
firefly lane by Kristin Hannah is a novel about two young girls and their friendship that spans 30 years.

I had planned to post pictures of the drawing but I am sick and just can't be bothered! Ha!

I love to think about books long after I have read them, sit and reflect about choices the author makes in the story telling...I have only one relationship that has lasted nearly this long besides sisters and parents, and that would be my relationship with my Hubby! So...the intimacy between these two women was not something I could completely relate to!
I wish I could have...I wish I knew what happened to my very best friend from eighth grade...I wonder if she still lives in England.
Do you still see your best friend from eighth grade?
Congrats, to Diane...email me your address and I will send you this book and a Starbucks Gift card.I mean...What is a good book without a good cup of coffee?
I am going back to sleep...everyone have a great day!

I'm still friends with kids from grade school.
It's funny how they keep looking older and I stay just the same...

Anyway, what about Flat Stanley??

Feel better soon! I saw my bff from 7th grade a few years back. I knocked on her door and out comes bff with a .44 mag straped to her leg...my hubby wouldn't go in with me...I think she was mad or (crazy)somethin?

I finished most of the books you sent. I was going to give them away on my site but I had a healer friend come yesterday and she gave me a very cheap price for her session so I offered her a bunch of books. So they have been gifted ahead :)

I am so sorry you are not well. Five of the six of us caught something-and one at a time no less!
Last year someone I went to 8th grade with tracked me down from Canada. After years of not "finding" me she started looking for my brother figuring my name changed due to marriage. She somehow found my married name with something of my brother, googled me and got my email from a PTA database from my child's elementary school! Crazy!

Hope you feel better soon!
And yes, I still see some friends that I knew from school. It´s great, because they know you from "the beginning" and it just clicks!

I saw my best friend from the eighth grade at a high school reunion about 5 years ago, but the spark was gone....

Debbie said...

I swap Christmas cards with my best friend from 8th grade. Does that count?

Elizabeth said...

I couldn't relate to the relationship in this book either, Ronda. I haven't seen or spoken to my best friend from HS since our 2nd weekend of college. No reason why, just a drift.
With FB I am re-connecting with people, but no one is local, so it's all electronic.

Congrats to Diane!

My best friend from 8th grade is my BFF!
