Last Thursday

For two years now, I have been following this woman. And for two years I have read about her life - her love for her husband, her whole family, and her little kitty. What attracted me most to her was how close she is to her family. It reminded me of how I am with my family. Not only that, I realized what a genuine person she really was. Reading her blog made me want to be a better person. And I found myself hoping that I could meet her and have a friendship with her. Lucky me, we formed a friendship. Last Thursday I got to meet her for the first time in person.

Who is 'her'? Megan from Yellow Polka Dotted Slugs.

Let me just tell you all that she is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog. I feel so very fortunate to have gotten close with her and I loved our visit together. At first I was a little nervous, but once I got to her house, it was like we had known each other for years. We talked for HOURS...literally. And might I add that she is the cutest pregnant person I have ever seen!!!! I even got to touch her belly!!! She hasn't had the easiest pregnancy and is currently on bed rest and she is handling better than anyone I have ever known. She is gorgeous. And she is going to be the most wonderful mother ever.

So much to say and I don't have the words to say them. That and little Miss Skylar is up from her nap and demanding some mommy time.

Megan, thank you again for such a wonderful afternoon. I thoroughly enjoyed and am looking forward to hanging out again.

I know the feeling. It's like you and me... we've never actually met but I feel like we're so close! We should probably change that sometime soon (the never met part that is.)

OMG, this is so sweet! Thank you so much, Steph! It was so wonderful to meet you and chat and catch up. You are the sweetest and I so enjoyed our visit. We will have to do it again soon so that I can meet your little Skylar! xoox
