nope its wasn't that long a weekend

i'm just finally getting back on here to post some cards of the post variety.

yesterday's card was

this flying bird - also Character Constructions -

very cool stamps - check 'em out.

and Monday's postcard was this nest. Guess what stamp company it's from? Yup. Character Constructions again.
i feel a little bad saying i was gonna show some cool postcards this week. My intentions were good and so are the stamps. I started by stamping these images thinking i'd do some more with each one but the weekend away - well that kinda put me behind as well as just life in general.
Now as for the weekend - quite a wonderful girlfriend weekend. These friends are special. I've known them all for - wow - 32 years i guess. And because they are those kinds of friends - well when we get together we pick up just where we left off. It's like no time has passed - it's really remarkable. I cherish each and every one of them.
We rented a house in Annapolis - very close to the center of town - in Eastport (if you're familiar). They all arrived on Friday - I joined them on Saturday morning. It was almost Saturday afternoon because I hit town right before the Navy game started. Sheesh. The traffic. The people take their Navy football pretty serious in Annapolis. Once I got there we all took a walk into town and did a little shopping. Annapolis has some great shops. We stopped in a local sandwich shop for lunch and then headed out to walk some more. Some of the girls wanted to take a walk into the Naval Academy - a place we spent considerable time visiting back in our college days... ahem. Since the game was going on at the time, it was fairly quiet and perfect for just walking about. If you've never been to USNA it's worth a visit. The grounds are really gorgeous. Back in the day you could just walk on in and roam the grounds. Nowadays you have to go through security - and then roam about LOL! We finally headed back to the house. I should interject here that Saturday was pretty hot and it seemed to take it's toll on most of our feet as I'm still dealing with blisters. (they were worth it). Saturday night we went to a lovely but very crowded restaurant where we waited a half hour for a table despite the reservations we'd made 6 months ago (and confirmed earlier in the day). Now I'm used to waiting in restaurants in the Burg. It's part of life round here. But some of the others weren't quite pleased. Regardless, we had a lovely meal and we walked on back to the house. Much wine was drunk and music played. Many of the girls brought their scrapbooks - yes the good old fashioned kind that they'd made all those years ago. Oh and the yearbooks came out too. I was only sorry when we all had to pack up and leave on Sunday morning. But all good things must come to an end. We're gonna try our best to make it an annual event from here on out.
ok. gotta get moving for the day!

Love these postcards, I'm so inspired by these, (I know I'm repeating myself!)I just can't help it! I've felt so encourage to create a few nifty postcards, too. I also just adore how you tell a story and make me feel like I'm right there! Thanks for sharing, Tracy!
