Bloggy Meet-up

Guess what I did yesterday?  I met Deidre from For Such a Time as This!!

I've been reading her blog for a while now but didn't realize at first that she lived pretty close to us and very near to my hometown.   Deidre and Faith have become bloggy friends too and we all have had our family's pictures taken by Heather.  Our friend Amy, who also had a session with Heather will be moving to Deidre's town in the next year or so.  So we all have this connection and thought it would be fun to meet in real life. 

Today was the day and it was soooo much fun!  We ate and talked and laughed and talked and laughed and did I mention talked? 

And of course I forgot my camera!  But luckily everybody else remembered theirs!  Except I don't think Heather (the PHOTOGRAPHER!) brought hers either.  Probably didn't want to show us up with her mack daddy one.  That was nice of her. 

It was great to meet Deidre especially since we have SO much in common.  She commented on this post a while back and told me how much!  Since then we've found out other things as well.  She was just as funny as she is on her blog and even prettier than her pictures!

I loved it too!! I am so thankful that we all had the chance to get together. Once I move, we'll have to plan it every few months so we can have some more "Stories by Amy"!!! I'm sure I'll have plenty more by then!
Love you!!

Well HOW FUN! I kinda thought that you guys all lived close...I'm glad you figured it out so you could connect face to face! Sounds like I missed a fun time. I'm SURE you would have invited me if I didn't live like 2000 miles away, right? *wink wink*

Look at you - the first to post :) You are so organized. I'm working on it, but keep getting interrupted.

I had a GREAT time meeting all of you. I had no idea we had been there that long. I laughed when I got in the car because I had 3 messages from my daughter ... "Mom, are you okay with those blog people?" ha!

We do have to get together again. It was so much fun. I wish we all lived near each other :)
