Title: Friends IRL (in real life)
My other half always teases me that I spend too much time on the internet, and nothing will ever come out of it. He couldn't be more wrong, because the most wonderful person came out of it--a new friendship with Aiva. Our friendship started virtually, but after she accepted my invitation to visit me in the USA, we got to know each other IRL (in real life). Many private emails and conversations later, I feel like there's some telepathic connection between us. For example, I'll have something on my mind to ask her, and without asking, she'll write about it in the next email :) I thought that zodiac-like stamp is very mystic and cosmic-like, appropriately fit the idea that fate brought us together. I've told her that I feel like some higher power has sent her to me when I needed a friend like her. Coincidentally, I've also found an Inque Boutique stamp (Victorian Flourishes) with the perfect saying: Friends are God's way of taking care of us. I feel like Aiva is God sent :)
P.S. apologies for the horrid scanning; Due to a few extra bulky embellishments, the red background is marred with shadows.
