Friday morning started off with Michael telling me it is Margie Day! That starts it off on the right foot doesn’t it? Then he took me to breakfast. I LOVE going out to breakfast. Fast forward to the reception for the Michigan Fine Arts Competition. Several friends came along to share this evening with me, and a few more showed up unexpected. My “Lemon with your Tea?” sold within the first half hour which was beyond exciting. As it turned out, the couple that bought my photograph were friends of one of the couples that were with me, but didn’t know it until after they bought it. So that made it even more special when we realized what happened. They come every year looking for a new piece for their home and this year my lemons “spoke to them”. Yippee, glad they were chatty that night! LOL!

Then we jumped in our cars and went to the gallery together. That show was a surprise as it turned out to be quite dark and edgy which is fine, except that I’m not sure how my “Who Needs Roses?” got in! LOL! It didn’t matter, we had fun, two more friends showed up and the 9 of us ended up going out for a snack and drinks afterwards.

The photos around my tulips are quite mainstream. They must have put the four of us together on purpose! LOL!

You have been so supportive, cheering me on from near and far, I wanted to let you know how the evening unfolded. It was one I won’t soon forget. Thank you everyone.

Here’s a sweet capture to start off your week.

Grateful and bright rosy hugs, Margie
