Recovering from SB 2009

has come and gone...
but it will take days to tell you about it.
This is the centerpiece at Saturday's luncheon.
Cari Kraft made them!
The photo below is from Peggy...

Natalea, do you see Janey behind the tree!

We sat together in Pam Garrison's Lineage of Love class.

Janey loves me ........ pictures tomorrow...

Today I'll share photos of my two online friends that I met in person for the first time...

First is Katie!

And then I found Lynn a little later....

This is a picture of the 3 of us at the luncheon....

Katie is tall! I thought of her as petite!

Isn't that funny how we picture people?

But I was correct in how sweet and loving she is.

She is a beautiful woman inside and out! It was such a joy to meet her.

We only had one class together and we sat on opposite sides of the room...

that class was oversold - Rebecca Sower's cigar box class which was my

absolute favorite class!

Lynn is adorable. She is sooooooo cute and lively.

She needs a new picture on her blog.... she is a thousand times

more darling in person! I'll have to send her a new photo of herself!

Of course, I'm a thousand times cuter in real life myself.... so I get it. More TOMORRRRRROW!

Looks like you had a blast. I'm looking forward to seeing more pictures. BTW, Katie reminds me of the actress Lorraine Bracco!
