Now who in their right mind visits Phoenix, AZ. in the middle of the summer when temps reach as high as 115 degrees?
Well you do if you have a brand new grand-daughter to meet!
Phoenix really has become my second home and I love going there no matter the temps!
Little Miss Calista is a real joy and I feel so very blessed!
She has my son Joshua's eyes and her Mommy Dawn's mouth.
Only 10 days old in this picture and look how alert she is !
I had a lot of kisses to squeeze into one short week.
I had heard it before but I guess I didn't really believe it until it happened to me.
I also had the pleasure of having lunch with my Arizona blogging buddies! They are the most wonderful group of gals and I so look forward to seeing them when I come to town!
My friend Linda grew up in my neck of the woods and we found each other again through blogging.
We were 4-H buddies way back in the day and she went to high school with my hubby!
Check out her lovely blog... Reminisce....and this and that.
We also celebrated the birthday of the oh so sweet and very talented Marty, ( A Stroll thru Life).
Marty has more energy than most women half her age!
Ceekay (Thinkin of Home) planned the luncheon and she did a great job!
Liz, (Rose Vignettes) Linda, Laura's daughter.. the fashionista, Laura, (Decor to Adore) Me, Marty and Ceekay.
Such an amazing group of women and bloggers!
And then sweet Jamie ( Mimi's Corner) who was unable to meet up with us because her little grandson was having surgery that morning.
I am happy to report he is doing fine!
Jamie drove over to my son Joshua's home on Monday and took pictures of littleCalista!
Jamie does photography and I am so excited to see the pics!
Now how is that for a great friend, met thru blogging!
The world of blogging is truly an amazing place!
I hope to get caught up with all of you in the next week!
