Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!"...Dr. Seuss
One of the most exciting things I got to do was to meet, face to face, with a dear gal that I have become fast friends with on eBay and the Internet, over the past few years. We belong to an eBay "primitives" group (TLOFA - The Ladies of Folk Art) and have always had that "Colorado connection" between us - Joleen is from Sterling, CO, which is out on the north-eastern plains. We had spoken via email and phone over the past three years, but never actually met. I made it a priority this trip, and was so glad I did! I don't know that I have ever met someone for the first time that I felt more comfortable with than I did with Joleen...it was like we had known each other for years. And I hope she remains a close friend for many, many more to come. We spent the day antiquing (oh, the knowledge in her head), and then had lunch at my favorite Mexican spot in town, before she headed back to her family. I'm hoping she might want to make a trip out West some day! The door is always open here, girl!
And from a flowering friendship to the flowers in my parent's beautiful garden in Englewood, CO, I leave this post tonight...my husband and kids headed back home to Vegas after a week, and left me in the care of my folks, so I could accompany them on a "road trip" - definitely the best way to travel if you want to see anything...and see things we did! But, that's for tomorrow's post.
