I met a Blogging Buddy in REAL life!

What a special day I had yesterday!  I met Anna-Marie at Life's Adventures in real life!  But how, since she and her husband and two children live overseas in England and I reside on the East coast with my family?

We both started our blogs this past summer and we have been following each other's blogs since then.  Anna-Marie's husband travels alot with his work and they are taking several weeks to visit the states in various locations.   One of these locations happened to be about 30 minutes away from where I live!  So yesterday we were going to meet at a local park, but we had to change plans (due to one of my daughters getting sick in the night) and Anna-Marie and her family met us at my home for a little while before they continued on their exciting vacation!  We had a lovely time chatting and it was great to hear Anna-Marie's sweet voice and talk to her in person.  She's as kind in real life as she is on her blog!   While we chatted, our children ran outside in my backyard.  It was a beautiful day!  The weather was wonderful and the company was even better!
  Here we are with Anna-Marie's two children and my four children on my backyard bench swing. (The sun was very bright! )

Anna-Marie was so sweet to bring treats from England for our children.  My children love the very sweet Scottish Tablet candies!  They also have enjoyed playing with the 2-story bus pencil sharpener located just above the London postcard!  Thank you Anna-Marie!

Our visit was short, but it was just wonderful!  Our family was so blessed to meet her and her beautiful family.  I am so honored that they took time out of their busy vacation plans to stop in to meet us.  I look forward to getting to know Anna-Marie even more through blogging, especially now that I met her.  It really is a small world after all!  I never would have thought when I started my blog that I would have the privilege to meet a blogging friend who lives overseas in England!  Anna-Marie, I hope you continue to have safe and fun travels with your family!  Thank you so much again for your visit!

My family is leaving today to go camping in the NC Mountains. I am looking forward to a nice Fall and blog break.  I do have a post scheduled to be published this Saturday while we are camping so be sure to check it out on Saturday :)

I am so glad you and Anna-Marie could get together. It makes the blogosphere seem that much smaller. Have a great weekend. I will keep voting for you. :)

Hi Anna-Marie!
