Meeting blogging buddies

I am so blessed to be able to attend our Annual Willow Convention last week. I learned so much and made many new friends. I will be sharing more about that soon, but I wanted to share with you that I had a chance to meet two delightful blog buddies in person. The first night in Atlanta I met the ever cheerful  Theresa from theycallmeganky.  She has become a treasured friend and one of my very best Willow House customers!! We had never met in person but we have been blogging friends for awhile now. We laughed when we saw each other... look at us. Can you say twins :  ) sorry for the blurry pix my camera and the lighting did not cooperate very well.

She was delightful and funny and the sweetest person. I felt as if we already knew each other and it was a wonderful evening filled with laughter, food. and fun and getting to know even more about each other. 
She even surprised me with some beautiful treasures. A journal, mug, a beautiful angel pin and chocolate yum!!  I was feeling bad that I was so busy getting ready for my trip that I didn't even think about a gift for her.
The next morning I got to meet yet another blog buddy for breakfast. Pam from  Late to the Party
I first "met" Pam through a blog swap and soon came to realize that we had so much in common. She is also sweet, funny and delightful and my Hero. You see Pam has recently lost more than 100 pounds and she looks terrific. I am so proud of her and I was so blessed to finally meet her in person. My only regret with these two special ladies is, that the time went much too quickly.  ( and that I did not think of giving them gifts)  I could have visited both for hours and hours. 
If you get a chance to visit a blog friend in person I highly recommend it. My life is richer with both of them in it!!

  1. you are so kind, Debbie! The gift YOU gave me was asking to meet with me while you were in Atlanta. I wouldn't have missed the opportunity for a million dollars! It was fun and you are didn't last long enough. So glad you enjoyed your Willow House meetings and that you arrived back home safe and sound. Pam

  2. Oh you sweetie, I enjoyed it so much and agree with Pam... meeting you was gift a'plenty:) Big hugs my friend, hope it doesn't take too long before we meet again!
