Meeting My Blogging Friend

It's not every day that one gets to meet a blogging friend face-to-face. But yesterday was my lucky day. I got to meet Lea from Lea and Her Mustangs. She and her husband were here in our valley from Spokane, Washington with their Backcountry Club attending the Outdoor Show at the fairgrounds.

Lea had mentioned, a couple of weeks ago, that she would be in town, and sure enough, she called when they got here. We arranged that Jim and I would come to the fairgrounds on Sunday and we would meet up.

Lea is just as sweet as I imagined her to be and Jim and her husband had so much in common. The four of us walked around the Outdoor Show, taking in the sights, and talking. I hope we can get together again soon.

What a special moment and a special blessing to get to meet Lea!!

That is my dream--to spend some time meeting all these good friends I have made through blogging. Lucky you!

Pat- I think we get to know one another pretty well thru blogging and when we meet we're not disappointed. Lea was just who I thought she would be.

I've been on line for 10 + years, and last year was the first time that I had the opportunity to meet someone on line. (Only because she lives about 5 miles from my home) But that was a very special meeting, and I'm sure it's just the beginning of a long time friendship...So glad the two of you also had the opportunity to meet...

Thank you so much Barbara. I knew it was you as soon as you walked thru the door. Hope it is warmer in the valley today. Its very cold here. What a blessing to get together. Hope its not too long that we get to meet again.

Barbara said...

JD- It's just amazing that we are in this kind of sisterhood with women we've never met; drawn to one another for various reasons. I love it!

Barbara said...

Lea- What fun to meet you and Bob! And to think that we even see life in much the same way.

The sun has been out all day here in the valley. Sure is different from the wind and rain we had while you were here.

Joanne said...

What a wonderful day you had! I feel the same way, that a distinct friendship, as you say, a sisterhood, develops over the blogs. It's a wonderful experience, one in which I feel as though I can count on these friends for connection and support.

Barbara said...

Joanne- I've depended on the emotional support of the sisterhood so many times within the past year. I just never dreamed, when I created my blog last April, that so many relationships would be forged out of our shared interests and experiences.

One of THE best things about the Internet and blogging. Glad you got to meet.

There's nothing like a face to face meeting with someone special! Wouldn't it be fun to have all our blog family together for a party!

I'm not sure exactly where you are, Barbara, but the next time you are in Spokane, email me ahead of time and I would love to take you out to lunch.

Barbara said...

Angie- Thank you.

Barbara said...

Donna- That would be sooo cool!!!

Barbara said...

Michaele- Great!!

Barbara said...

KKJD1- When I created my blog one year ago, I would never have thought I would meet one of my readers. It's such fun!!

Michele said...

What a small world... Amazing the connections you can make!

Barbara said...

Michele- Yes, it's a small world.
