I have been blogging since July 2007. In the five years, it's always exciting when I get a call or an email from a fellow blogger who wants to meet up.
In May 2009 it was Tammy from Flat Creek Farm.
Next month, June 2009 it was lunch with Betsy from Giggle & bits.
Almost a year later, March 2010 Becky from Sewing4him and I had lunch.
A week later, March 2010 Nicole at Missouri Gal and I went with some friends to a quilt show.
In June 2010 Deanna at My loves, my live and I met quite by accident.
Just last month I met Nancy and Gerry. That is after Claire took me to her quilt guild.
Last night I got an email from Marlene at Stitching by the lake. She was going to be in town for a few days. I quickly fired an email back to her and we made plans for lunch today.
I was only waiting a for minute or two at Panera's when Marlene and her sister Sherry walked in. We all exchanged hugs and ordered our food as if someone was starving. Okay, the two sisters were starving!
Gosh did we bond quickly. From canning, to cooking, quilting, antiques, kids. . . the conversation was non-stop.
Sherry snapped this picture before we walked out.
It took a 92 minute lunch to get this shot!
Thanks girls, we must do lunch again!
