East Meets West


Bloggy world has been good to me this week. First of all, I finally got to meet IN REAL LIFE Gretchen of the West. We've been blog fwends for a few months and what a blessing to finally get to give her neck a hug.
She's just as wise, adorable, and funny as I thought she would be. And she has a talent for making you feel special when she calls you "honey." Love her.

CPQ hosted a brunch, complete with her amazing orzo, for us bloggy friends to get togetha. The conversation flowed so easily, you would think we've known each other forever. Laughter, encouragement and conversation about real life spilled out onto the page of life that day.

I placed my first etsy order this week, yes I did. It's about time, huh? I'm a little slow sometimes. Anyways, I was so pleased with how quickly it arrived. Can you believe the price? Hopefully I'll have pictures when we do the big room reveal.

I felt all grown up and faincy-like with 2 ladies lunches this week. My mom treated me to an amazing new French restaurant in town. Ooh-lala! Even the menu was written in French. Oui!
While my dad treated the grands to a lunch of their own, we feasted on crepes.

On Valentines Day I received this beauty from the uber-talented Heather. She was having a giveaway and I WON!!! Thanks, Heather! Love, love, love it!

LURVE the picture. Lurved meeting Gretchen of the East and her sweet daughters. And what was not to lurve about the orzo. :)

Please come visit WA so that we can continue our conversation. It was great, but too short. We also need to craft together. xxxooo
