Have you ever met someone for the first time and felt like you have known them forever? I have!
Back in early October, I did just that. Shelly and I have been speaking online for months but just hadn't had the opportunity to meet in person. So one day we decided to have a girl's night out at a local Starbucks. I got there first and when she walked in we gave each other a big hug and commenced chatting up a storm. We talked so much that they ended up having to kick us out at closing time! That didn't stop us. We still stood outside talking for about 15 more minutes. That initial meet up left us wanting to get together again soon.
A few weeks ago, Shawn and I had to go to Shelly's town for a funeral. When she found out, she didn't miss a beat and invited us to come to her home afterward for dessert and adult conversation :) We had so much fun and she was so gracious to let us come over....even at 8 o'clock in the evening! We sat and chatted until about 10. The cool thing was that our hubbies hit it off just as well as we did.
Now I can't wait until they get to come up to our house and all of our kiddos can meet
each other :-)
