A birthday party is always a perfect reason to gather with friends. In this case, I spent time with ladies that had quite a history together. Some had known each other since they were four years old and they reminisced over meeting for the first time. Painting a canvas just happened to be on Mary's bucket list, so this close knit group decided to help her check off that goal. The ladies painted in the open air and it was a beautiful evening. Hostess Sharma Dittmer was eager to feed me...sometimes it is hard in my line of work to turn down eating delicious food on the job! Thanks to Sharma for opening her home and Happy Birthday to Mary!
