I was feeling brave today as I set out to meet an online blogging friend (Lori) live and in person! Lots of thoughts swirling around in anticipation for our lunch date: is it safe to meet a stranger, would she like me, would I like her, will she be as nice in person, will we have anything to talk about, and on and on. You get the idea. Of course I had nothing to worry about. Lori was so friendly and our kids are close in age so we had something in common besides artsy stuff. I admit I was a wee bit intimidated since Lori is such a talented artist and I'm an art newbie but she put me at ease with her lovely smile and sparkly blue eyes. Thank you Lori for taking time out to get together with me!
