(Susie Harris and myself at "Jazz Daddy's."
My husband said I looked like an "AMAZON" up against her. She's very petite!)
I feel that I am very BLESSED to have so many sweet and precious friends all over the WORLD actually.
But this past Tuesday I was able to MEET an "online" friend in person. It was so much fun!
I've know this little lady, (oh and I do mean LITTLE.....she's tiny) for way over over a year plus. I met her through our blogs. Crazy I know but that's how it works. We laughed at lunch about how our families but think this is nutty. HA!
Her name is "Susie Harris" and her blog is beautiful and named....."Bienvenue" which in French means......"Welcome"
I have always liked her. I like her "humor" and I like her "elegance" and I like her "down to earthiness" all at the same time. Plus I think she is highly gifted.
I had asked her to make me one of her signs that she designs and we decided to "meet up for lunch" at a local little restaurant her husband likes to eat at.
We both ordered "Po-Boys" which is typical for this area. She had the ham and I had the fried oyster, of course. And we both LOVED the bread!! Nice and soft very yummy!.....HA!
But what was really GOOD was the rich visit we had.
She is just as "real" in person as she is on her blog. I appreciated her heart and hearing how she loves doing what she does and loves her family and her life.
She is the REAL DEAL and I love that in people.
(Susie GAVE me the sign she had made for me and a beaded "House Blessing" she makes as well. How neat was that!)
We talked about life and our families and all kinds of things.....for about 3 hours. HA!
She's on her way to "Blissdom" today in Nashville with her sister.(Good thing I had planned ahead and brought her a little something as well.....HA!)
But we both plan on getting together again soon.
Now I want to meet these ladies all in PERSON please...K.J. and Julie, and Mary, and Jackie in ENGLAND, and Pat, and Bernideen, Teresa,....and oh my goodness I can't even put every one on here because my "list" is so long.....forgive me if your name isn't mentioned. I am thinking of you...it just would take all day to do this if I kept this up.
Ummm.....I think we need to set up a "meeting site" ladies. Maybe a "Bloggers convention???"
Where can we all meet?
I say we go to Jackie's country of course.......HA!
What do you all think?
