In the 5+ years since I started writing here, I have been blessed to meet several blog friends in real life: Leah, Mer, Jamie and Tracy. I've even met up with 3 of those women on more than occasion!
I was able to meet two more blog friends on our recent vacation. First of all, I had lunch with Lisa. She is actually a second cousin of Eric's, but I've gotten to know her through her new blog, and we discovered we have lots of things in common. It was so much fun to meet Lisa for the first time, and here's proof that we survived Michigan's record-breaking heat:
Katie in person. Katie has become a dear friend. I wrote her not long ago and told her she is one of the most encouraging and generous people I'd *never* met. When our travel itinerary took us near Katie's abode, I contacted her to see if we could stop by. In true Katie fashion, she not only opened her home to us for lunch, but made sure to have lots of favorites on hand, and she even sent us off with some treats for the road. It was so great to meet you, Katie! Though our time together was brief, we were so blessed by your hospitality, and it was fun to interact with your sweet kids as well!
I am thrilled to have met so many amazing women on this journey. Hmm--wonder who I'll meet next?!
