You know when bloggers meet we have to tell you all about it, right? It's because we're bloggers and we blog about this kind of stuff.
Well, as I mentioned, I had a little blogger meet up planned this week.
Mrs. B and I met a few years ago when our blogging and infertility paths crossed via the internet. We connected in many ways, but our MN roots also interwove our bond.
Then, in 2011, my family prayed the St. Andrew Christmas novena specifically for Mr. & Mrs. B. A few months later, pregnancy news was revealed and we joyfully celebrated and waited for their little Elizabeth to arrive.
Fast forward to recently when Mrs. B became an Usborne Books consultant and emailed a few friends. I sent a quick reply letting her know that if she was willing to make the drive, I'd gladly host a show at my home.
It was kind of my ploy to actually get to meet in person, but the book show would be great too.
With that, we've been planning on her and Elizabeth making the two hour drive, coming to play, having the book party and just plain old visiting.
It couldn't have worked out any better!
Yes, IRL, Mrs. B is exactly as she comes off in her written blog: fun, a bit spunky, a good conversationalist, smiling, a faith filled woman with a generous heart and a wonderful mom.
Here we are, unedited:
The girls enjoyed the new playmate and she even stayed overnight, double bonus!
It came morning time and a couple of the girls were less than eager to sit still for photos.
And the cat next door kind of lured them together for this shot.
Again, Jonah is the only boy, but he doesn't mind it too much.
A very good visit indeed. Thanks Mrs. B and Elizabeth for visiting our humble abode!
It's always amazing to me how we all bond through a computer and our blogs. Friends of the heart whose lives are intertwined together through technology.
Now if we could only all live in some little blogging bubble so that we wouldn't have to wait so long to meet.
Happy Weekend Friends!
