Have I got a story for you…


Remember how I told you another blogger and I recently met for coffee?…

Meet Lisa from StopnSmelltheChocolates!
The story of how we ended up getting together is pretty ironic, if you ask me…
Lisa and I originally “met” through our blogs about a year and a half ago.
At some point, we figured out we both live in Northern California.
We agreed that we should try to meet up for coffee some day, but neither of us knew how close we lived to each other.
Then, after Valentine’s Day, when I posted about the date I had with Mike, Lisa recognized where we were in the photos.
We exchanged emails and realized we live in the same town. And then Lisa wrote…
“Just wait until you hear THIS! Were you in Michael’s this afternoon? I think I saw you crossing the road with your daughter and I went–that’s Genny! Now maybe I was mistaken, but if that wasn’t you–she looked a lot like you!”
It turns out, it was me. And Lisa and I had even been in the same aisle in Michaels getting school supplies with our kids!
It also turns out that we live only a couple of miles from each other, and our birthdays are just days apart. (Happy BDay, Lisa!)
So of course,

we decided to get together for coffee.
And of course, we brought our cameras so we could take pictures and blog about it! :) 
Be sure and stop by Lisa’s blog and say hi. She’s such a sweetheart and her blog is great!

    FUN! I love it when the world is small like that. When we moved a few years ago we ended up moving into the same neighborhood as a blogging friend of mine without realizing it!

    How fun is that. I had the opportunity to meet someone I met online recently, too. It's so good to make that connection after only writing to them or commenting on their blog. I guarantee that if I'm ever in your neck of the woods, we'll do coffee.
