By now you've probably heard that I got to have lunch with some of my favorite bloggy people. I was in their area visiting family and I was so thrilled that they wanted to get together!
You've probably already seen this picture, but do you know who everyone is? Clockwise from top left it's Jen, me, Jill (she's not a blogger, but we love her anyway), Emily, Nester, Kendra and Lauren.
If you've ever wondered if these women are who they seem to be on their blogs, I can tell you YES, YES, YES! Each one of them was exactly who I had hoped them to be.
Jen is so real and honest and fun. I felt like I had known her forever.
Emily is sweet and kind and talented. You should have seen her balancing her camera to take that top picture.
Kendra is smart and interesting and just plain awesome. Someone commented that she's going to be the next Rachel Ray. I can totally see that.
Lauren is adorable. Her wedding is coming up soon and she is going to make a beautiful bride. I can't wait to see the pictures.
And Nester? Well, she's Nester. Humble and encouraging. Talented and so sweet. I'm so glad that she's my friend.
And I just had to share a couple of other pictures. This is what happens when a bunch of bloggers get together.
Pictures, pictures, pictures.
And laughing. I think Nester was afraid I was going to try and eat her.
Just so you know I'm not actually a horse. Bet you didn't know that I won a silver medal though. And now my sister knows that I raided her jewelry box while she was gone. Thanks Renee!
A bit of posing for the camera.
And new friends made (for me anyway). They all knew each other already. Thanks girls! I can't wait to come back for another visit.
