Two years ago this coming January, I met my new best friend. I was a wife and mother of three, and most of my highschool friends were still single. Shawn was in the process of starting on the building our new home and had asked a friend of his to come and give a quote on heating and cooling.
Fast forward to last month. If you know me, you certainly know that I have extremely rough pregnancies. Kristen knew company was coming and she so kindly offered to drive an hour to come and help ready the house. (Whenever I thank her for doing this, she jokingly says there will be a time when I will have to return the favor so "it was no problem!")
Can't take credit for the delicious recipe that I came across, but I'll let you take a look in case you want to give it a try.
Aunt Kay's Buttery Caramel Sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup whipping cream
Makes 2 1/2 cups
In a medium saucepan combine sugars, syrup and butter.
Cook over mudium heat, stirring occasionally until mixture comes to a full boil, about 5-6 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
Stir in whipping cream.
Pour into a jar and store in refrigerator. It will thicken when cold.

In a calendar I made for Kristen at Christmas last year, I added this quote. I believe it is so fitting for our friendship. I trust you have a friend/friends you are thankful for, as well!
In everyone's life,
at some time,
our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame
by an encounter with
another human being.
We should all be thankful
for those people who
rekindle the inner spirit
