AUSTRALIA the final week

It has taken me some time to get to the point where I could write about my final week in OZ without shedding a tear. I spent my last week with my mountain dwelling friend Chris Bennett and her family. To say that they made me feel right at home from the moment I stepped through their door would be a gross understatement. They are a lovely family together and one by one. Chris drove me around to see the sights each and every day. We visited friends homes,drove through the mountains to see the sights, shopped and stamped. I don't know if I kept her busy or if it was the other way around.What fun we had.
The day arrived that I had to pack my bags and leave all my friends and return home to Arizona. As only they can do, my Aussie buddies made my departure a very special one. I was seen off in a mass of laughter, tears and love. Thank you Anne,Jessie, Rob,Chris, Darryl and Simon for such a memorable send off!
I have been home for two months now and I have vowed to return in 2010.What a happy day that will be. In the meantime, perhaps some of my dear friends will visit me here in Arizona!
Please revisit the Sydney slide show as I am adding photos of sightseeing, play dates with friends and airport photos.

Hi Jackie,

It was so great to spend time and get to know you while you were here in Australia. Hope that we meet up again one day.

Love and hugs,
