My best friend in the whole world is Heidi. Heidi and I met about 13 years ago when I started teaching in Grand Blanc. We went through the same Masters degree program and instantly became friends. When we were suppose to be working on homework and projects for our program, you could find us laughing, snacking, and spending lots of hours talking – the homework always came last! We remained good friends after we graduated. As the years went by, I could count on Heidi to be there for me whenever I needed her. She was there through the hardships, struggles, good times, bad times and was my shoulder to cry on when I needed her. Heidi and I are very different, but our love for family and home are the traits that make us so compatible.
Several years later, we both went back to graduate school and received our Education Specialist degrees TOGETHER. We helped each other through the most excruciating program of our lives. We both know that we couldn’t have done it without each other.
As I get older, I understand how difficult it is to find a true friend. I find myself incredibly lucky to have my true friend, Heidi. I can’t imagine going through life without her!
I gave Heidi all of my tags from my Polka Dot and Daisy Collection. She came up with the cutest idea…lime green, red, black & white polka dots, and ladybugs! What an adorable combination! Here are some pics from Heidi’s 1st grade classroom…
Don’t you love the colors? I also loved the way Heidi used my “Welcome” sign in a different way – on her door! The lime green daisies from Polka Dot Market and the lime green poms are stunning with this color combination. I love how the black and white polka dots look great with so many colors! Great job, Heidi!
