Pie Love You

  When we moved to Virginia almost nine years ago, the realtor that helped us find our house was incredible.  There were houses we were really interested in, but when we toured various homes she would point out problems with each one that we would not have been aware of...she knew which pipes should be avoided, homes that had a history of radon issues, etc.  Beth is more than a realtor, she is a friend.  In the Spring she would occasionally pop by to say "hi" and bring a plant, every year sends us a calendar, and every November a gift certificate for a pie at a local pie shop.

  We have referred a few people to Beth and she laughs because each one has asked, "Do we make the pie list?"  They don't ask about commission, they ask if they are getting a pie in November!

  Beth was fabulous when we were preparing to move again a year ago.  We used her to to both help us sell that house we were in for eight years and to help us purchase our current home last Spring.  For the past two years the pies we chose with our gift certificate were "almond amaretto chess."  YUM!

  I always make her a thank you card, and imagine my surprise when I don't own a single Cricut cartridge that will cut a pie!  I have two that will cut the word, but no pie image.  I grabbed a scrap of BasicGrey "Nook and Pantry" and a scrap of mirror paper and drew my own pie.  My doily is a Martha Stewart tag and the other two patterned papers are "Modern Homemaker" by October Afternoon.  The button brad is by Bazzill/Imaginisce.  My sentiment stamp is a Joy's Life "Yummy Pun Stamps" sentiment:
Happy Sunday!

It's great to have a great realtor like that. We had one in Illinois we kept in touch with.
