I do love my friend.

I've got a friend called Danae....that's her up there. Cute right?! Well Danae and I have never met in person! We met through my blog and its weird I know but she has become one of my best friends. She is married to Steve and they are coming for a visit in May, and Mart and I cant wait!!!!
Danae and Steve have become 2 of our best cheerleaders and supporters of the work that we are doing here in South Africa. And this past Sunday (Valentine's Day) Danae held a Valentine's Day luncheon at her church in NYC. She was raising money for Project O, $500 to be exact!!!!! FANTASTIC! All that money from a lunch! $500 will go so far here in South Africa. What a great blessing.

Danae is bit of a cupcake nut...even more than I am! And she made these adorable cupcakes to sell. They look yummy. (and yes Danae your frosting skills are getting good! ;-) )Getting tables ready.
I love this photo. I would really like to go see her church, the building looks so old and very beautiful, like so many of the buildings in Manhattan....oh how I miss NYC!
Danae thank you for doing this for the orphans of South Africa. I love and appreciate you so much and I cant wait for you to get here.
