Thankful challenge for Lasting Memories-My friend Beth

Are you ready for another great challenge at Lasting Memories?  The challenge this week is - Who Are You Thankful For?

Our challenge this week can be easy for some, tough for others. Some it will even bring a tear to your eye and a smile in your heart, or it could have you in a full out belly laugh (all by yourself!) as you recall that awesome thing you did with that special someone.

For my person that I am thankful for I chose my best friend Beth.  
I first met Beth, about 5 years ago,  when I went to her store Scrapbook Blessings.  
 All the scrapbook stores near me had closed so I was on the hunt for new store.  
I not only found a store but the best friend you could ever have.    
Beth was so sweet to my husband and I that day and that was the beginning of our friendship.  
Not long after that she encouraged me to start teaching classes and I have been ever since.  
Her family has totally embraced me as one of their own.  
She is always there for me, listening, encouraging and making me laugh.   
Through the past few years there have been changes to the store but 
if anything our friendship is stronger and stronger.  
So for Beth I am thankful for
This is a picture of us on a trip to the Apple Farm in San Luis Obispo.  
We had great times visiting her daughter there while she was in college.  
Now her daughter is at Harvard.  Hmmm maybe a trip to Boston?!

For the paper I used Adorn It  from a few years ago
