I've shared before how much blogging means to me. Over the years I have come to realize that what I treasure the most is the friendships I've made. Most of you I will sadly never meet in person, but occasionally the stars align and I get to meet face to face with a blogging friend! That happened this week!
I have followed Shelia's blog Note Songs for years. You know how you read someone's blog and KNOW you could be friends...well we are! She is always upbeat and makes the cutest little vignettes. He blog always makes me feel good, so I was super excited to meet her in person!
She is even more awesome in person! Cute as a button and twice as sweet! We had no trouble talking for hours and I enjoyed every minute of it!
I know I promised lots of photos but I was enjoying the visit so much that these photos Shelia's Mr. Precious took are all I have to share!
Look at sweet Chloe Dawn, she was adorable too!
The visit started with a tour of her lovely home. I got to see all these charming decorations in person and yes...her home is as cute as her photos show! She has little visual surprises everywhere! A feast for the eyes!
And speaking of feasts, Shelia made lunch for us and it was so good. Chicken salad on croissants, fruit, chips and ice tea. I enjoyed meeting Mr. Precious who ate lunch and left us to our chattering!
Her Easter mantel was so cute. I must say I just love her style and everything about this fun lady!
As bloggers do we exchanged some gifts!
Look at this journal with the Eiffel Tower on it! For my trip to Paris she said....how thoughtful and I will use it for sure! She also made me this darling Rooster potholder! (Roos are a favorite of her's) and of course a chocolate Easter bunny!
I am so Grateful for the chance to meet Shelia in person and spend time with her. Since she lives not too far from my Mom, we hope to get together again next time I'm in Texas! Thank you Shelia for a wonderful day!
I'm joining Mary's new link party
I will no longer host Gratitude Sunday so I am very happy that Mary has started this party! I hope you will join us!
Wishing You JOY,
