Meeting a Blog Buddy!

One of the highlights of our recent Florida road trip was dropping in on a blogging buddy, Elizabeth. It was the first time we had met in person, although I feel like I've known her for years!

She was so gracious about our constantly changing traveling schedule. It was a delight to spend even a few moments in their lovely home. If you haven't visited her blog, Yes They're All Ours, go now! You're in for a treat!

I was so excited! I could have talked for hours!

We love the treats she provided for these road-weary travelers!

Here's S.U.E. in Elizabeth's drive. It is SO NOT this clean now!


  1. Loved this post! ;)

    Thanks so much for taking the initiative to call and come by for that short visit! It would have been easy to just stay on the road, and keep eating away the many miles towards home, but I'm glad you took a break and came to meet me! It was sooooooo much fun to meet you and your wonderful family!!!

    I agree -- it felt like we had known each other forever, and I could have talked to you for hours! Hope you will come see us again!! :)

  2. This was awesome! i like reading her blog too... and yours... I miss you guys and was sad we couldn't get together when you were 3 minutes at our house. If Shannon turned down seeing you guys it was very legit. She slept for so long. She was exhausted, but it sounds like you guys were too... I do not know when we will make it back to Indiana... We had thought May but now we aren't sure. It maybe longer.
