"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one." ~ C.S. Lewis

A few weeks ago I invited 5 friends to come over for a cookie exchange tonight

These 5 friends of mine our all mothers.
A cookie exchange is where everyone bakes a dozen cookies per attendee
so if all participated we would have had to make 6 dozen cookies each

Did I mention we are all mothers?
We quickly changed it from a dozen per attendee to just a dozen...period.


I got 3 yes's and 2 maybes


Today it snowed.  A lot.
Today it was also really, really windy.

Tonight 1 of the yes's and the maybe showed up for the cookie exchange.


We drank wine
and talked
with no interruptions

We also ate cookies



Sometimes the best laid plans often fail


and what happens instead is better then expected.
