~A Kindred Spirit~

I have a friend who accompanied me (along with our children) to the city so I could get the ingredients for mochi.

Have you had it?

 It's a sweet, gooey dessert that my family loves.

I grew up in Hawaii, where you can pick up a container at the local drugstore (but it might have a black bean paste in the middle).

Since I'm no longer in Hawaii, I have to make my own(without the black bean).

I probably wouldn't have found the asian store without her.

She is such a sweet friend, and I was thinking of her today.

~Word Art Wednesday Challenge #46 is about friends this week~

I started with a fantastic sketch here, at Splitcoaststampers.

inspired me to create a dancing cityscape...

I used the colors at the Color Throwdown #210.

 Hope you are having a great week so far~thanks for peeking in today~
