I have a very good friend named Anne. Anne is from England. Anne didn't have a middle name so we gave her one. Now her name is Annie Jeanne.
Anne and I met 7 years ago when she was visiting a mutual friend here in Virginia. Minutes after meeting, we were great friends. Today I count Anne, and her husband Ryan, as some of my best friends (incidently, I also count Ryan as THE funniest person of my acquaintance). Our friendship takes place mainly over emails, but through not-as-common-as-I'd-like long flights with poor food we occasionally get to see one another face to face. Last summer I was able to spend 10 days touring England with Anne and Ryan and this summer I will stop in London for a day on my way to South Africa.
I wanted to share Anne with you all as I was able to chat with her today on line. A rare treat for us. She is a teacher and on her two week spring break. (I'm not sure how those Brits get anything done with all their vacation days.)
Anne started a blog today but she make me promise not to put the link on mine. So I wont... yet. But I will share the "Family Picture" they sent out this Christmas. I usually just like to show it to people and watch their facial expressions but since I can't do that with you, I'll share that the 'kid' isn't really their child but a friend that visited them for the summer while promoting his cd. And their outfits, well, they really tend to dress more 'skater alternative' than 'leave it to beaver'. And the bunnies... oh, wait, those really are really the family pets. Enjoy!
