I follow the Empty Nest Feathers blog and really fell for this blogger. We have so much in common! All sons . . . check! Writers and editors . . . check! Play the piano . . . check! And on and on and on! Since we live less than an hour apart, I thought it would be fun to meet in person. So I emailed her and we met for coffee (two regular coffees with cream), talked for an hour and a half (it seemed like five minutes), walked to our cars (the same color), and parted ways with a hug. If you ever get a chance to meet one of your blogging friends in real life—go for it! ♥ P.S. Here is the funny blog post my new friend wrote about our meeting. (She’s WAY wittier than I am! But, for the record, my red hair is from Clairol too, I’m NOT mrhmpher narrower, and she’s most definitely not evil!) Oh, and to see what’s in the package, click here and here and here!
Thanks, good twin!
You’re very welcome! Can’t wait until our next coffee date! 🙂
That is so cool!! Love it!
Thank you! I wish I could have coffee with ALL of you now!!! 🙂
How fun! I wished we lived closer…would love to meet you!
Enjoy your day! ~~~Vickie
Me too, Vickie!!! I’d love that! 🙂
Hahaha, i just love the synchronicities in life!!!! I live very close to Jill from Nice Piece of Work so we are def going to be swapping “sames” soon too!
Yay!!! I can’t wait to hear about it! Have fun!!! 🙂
How cool is that – the older you get the smaller the world becomes!
I wish WE could have coffee so I could meet you–AND see one of your fabulous outfits! 🙂
Aaaaw thank you my dear!
I drove 4 hours to meet a fellow blogger friend …It was so worth it…Like we had known each other all of our lives…The visit was short …but, hope to have a longer one in the future…So I just love it that you made the effort…and the common threads …are so neat…mkg
Yay!!! I love that story! I hope everyone gets to do this from time to time. I wish I could drive to meet YOU! 🙂
I’m in Louisville, KY…am I close???…Because I’m up for it!
Wichita, KS . . . but maybe someday one of us will be traveling the right direction!!! 🙂
You never know…
Sounds lots of fun 🙂 I have met people from online in the past and it is amazing how it all translates to *real life*. glad you had a fun time and found a new friend.. lovely 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 It was a first for me . . . but we DID already feel like we’d known each other forever! 🙂
That is so wonderful – to meet a blogger buddy that is so much like you! Glad you had such a great time! 🙂
It was great! And we’ve already figured out where to meet next time . . . just not when! 🙂
how cool! 🙂
It WAS cool!!! 🙂
How great the two of you got to meet. There are several people, starting with you, I wish I could meet in real-life. Maybe one day.
I’d love to meet you too, Lois!!! Future travel plans, right? 🙂
How fun!! What a great day!
It WAS, Laurie! Like a little mini-vacation . . . I love those! 🙂
I love the peek-a-boo. I glad you were able to meet a fellow blogger. It is good to see someone in person.
I can’t remember where I got this pretty bag! But is was the perfect size to take some little treasures to my new friend. 🙂
That is so fantastic Katherine, I’m excited for you. You probably notice that Alys from Gardening Nirvana is so very dear to my heart. We are planning a trip thru her home town for next spring and I can’t wait. WordPress has brought such good things my way, I can see that’s true for you too.
That’s really something to look forward to!!! I wish I could drop by for coffee while you’re there, too! 🙂
You would be the icing on the cake! Do you live near California?
Oh ya, I should have remembered that, Duh. Oh boy, yah that’s too far. According to Google maps, 30 hours west on the I80, I guess well just have to share the photos. 🙂
We’ll have to plan our own bloggers convention. We’ll hold it in a different city each year. Wouldn’t that be terrific? I am beyond excited to be meeting Boomdee next summer. Katherine, you are on my list as well.
Great idea!!! What fun that would be! 🙂
It would be great fun!!!
((( Alys))) you’re so cute, a blogger convention would be crazy fun. xoK
It is so nice to meet up with new friends :). What a wonderful day!
It WAS!!! I feel super blessed! 🙂
That’s so great!! Love to do that one day 🙂
I hope you can, too!!! 🙂
I popped on over to your Doppleganger’s blog as well. You both have a great sense of humor. I’m so glad you connected! Now to find out what you put in that little bag.
She definitely has a fun way of looking at life! Shes always makes me smile. 🙂
I can see why!
I haven’t checked out her blog, but DO agree with you – it would be fun to meet some of the bloggers out there in cyberspace that I am certain would be great friends! Including you, you are a creative person with a lot of energy.
Thank you, Susie! And I admire YOU for teaching middle schoolers . . . my favorite classrooms were first grade! 🙂
That was very fun to read about your coffee date! Can I join the club?…I have four boys – no girls, and I also play the piano. :o) Haha!
YES!!! I always wanted to be a triplet! 🙂
