9 p.m. madness

A few weeks ago my sisters, my Mom, my nieces and I went to a cottage decor shop owned by some relatives of ours. "midnight madness", but at 9 p.m.!! That's my kind of midnight!! It was such a delightful time. My sister picked me up and kindly handed me a freshly brewed cup of Starbucks white peppermint mocha....ah, yes, the PERFECT beginning to this night. Here is my niece Jess with her own cup! Thanks Shrish!!
Here are my sisters, from left to right, (Jan, Fan, my Mom, Naomi, Von, me). My best friends.

What an inspiring evening, such beauty, creativity, simple pleasures.

My oldest sister Fan, with her three beautiful daugthers. I hope I can look THAT good when I have children that are taller then me, (and it's highly likely that I will...have children that are taller then me that is)!!
And come on, the perfect ending to the night....smores with my Mom. They had a glowing fire just outside the door with all the ingredients! Yes, another wonderful memory to store for the road ahead.

"For there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one stands."
~Christina Rosetti
