For the Love of Blogging

Happy Monday!!!

My heart is full this morning.  Full of love for
my God, and how He meets my needs so wonderfully!

It's full of joy, warmth, and friendship because of the
delightful ladies He has brought into my life through blogging.

I'm telling you, if you haven't met any of your blogging
friends yet, you are missing out on a huge blessing!!


I spent Saturday with the fabulous {and I mean FABULOUS}
Sheila, aka Mrs. Magpie, aka The Quintessential Magpie,
{love you Sheila}
and met for the first time, the sweet and talented
Jane of Artfully Graced, and
  Rhonda of Shellbelle's Tiki Hut.
Tracy, of Ms. Bake It was suppose to join in the fun,
but at the last minute had to fix a problem at work.
We sure missed you Tracy!
Hope to meet you soon!!

We went to the Fancy Flea in downtown Lakeland and had
loads of fun looking at all the goodies! 
Then we went to lunch at the historic Terrace Hotel Grill 
What a treat!! Beautiful, isn't it??  And the food is amazing!

And what a delight each lady is!!
Unfortunately, I left my camera at home,
so no other photos to be had!
{I know...bad blogger!}

I did find an excellent post on The Fancy Flea, by
no other than Kim at Dear Daisy Cottage!!
She is a local and got some great shots!
Sheila pointed out her cute cottage to us!
You can find that post by clicking HERE

A few weeks back, I had the joy of meeting
another fabulous blogger,
my friend Tami, from A Girl's Gotta Nest.
We thrifted, ate lunch, gabbed, laughed,
and began a lovely friendship!
 We also got to visit with Sheila for a little
while...more delight!!

SO...if you are within easy driving distance
of any of your blog friends, I encourage you to
meet for lunch somewhere!!

YOU'LL BE SO GLAD YOU DID!!

Love to all of you wonderful bloggy friends
and to all that I have met already!
Hope to meet a lot more of you one day!!

HUGS!!!

Hey Beck, I have to admit I'm a tad green that you got to spend time with these ladies or rather that they got to spend time with you! How delightful though and I know their lives will be richer with you in it. Just sounds so fun.
Have a good week my friend.
Love you oddles.

I've not met any of my blogging buddies face to face yet, though my daughter has. She's been to Pittsburgh twice and is going again this year. The Pittsburgh friend is coming home with her. Last year, 3 blogging friends came out to visit us for 12 days.

I've developed dear email/snail mail/phone relationships with several dear bloggers, and I'm looking forward to meeting two or three of them on my trip next month.

Also, through blogging, as you know, I have reconnected with 1 very dear friend (YOU!!) and reconnected with one who was once an acquaintance, but is now becoming a dear friend (Nellie!).

Like you, I am so thankful for the friendships I have developed in this great big blog world. Can't wait to see you!!

Love,
Patti

How fun! Meeting up with blogging friends is such a wonderful idea! Sounds like you ladies had an amazing time!

Shellbelle said...

Oh Becky, I had such a great time meeting you and looking at all the goodies at the Fancy Flea!

You're absolutely right in telling everyone they should get out and meet their blogging friends, I've been so fortunate to meet a number of mine and each one has become such a precious friend and now that includes YOU!!!!!

Hugs

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Hi Miss Becky,
Sounds like yall had a great time. That terrace hotel grill looks like a lovely and delightful
place, and the company even better. So glad you had such a good time. Did you get any good finds for your etsy shop or just for your pure enjoyment.
Take Care,
Love ya, Nellie

Oh Becky how wonderful that sounds! And how I would love to meet some of those wonderful ladies I have come to know through blogging too. You'd be right near the top of my list. Maybe someday huh?

Hugs to you,

Nana's Nuggets said...

Hi! Becky, I was there in spirit! this sounded so fun! Lunch sounded fantastic, kinda makes you want to do this everyday! or at least a couple times a week! Pics were pretty! Have a great week!

Town and Country Gals said...

Becky,
So glad you dropped by so I could find you! What a fun time, meeting up with bloggy friends!
That would be great to be able to meet BFs in person! That Flea sounds and looks (went to Kim to see pics) wonderful! Lots of great treasures!
My husband's family had a family farm outside Lakeland for years and his grandma had a place in Cedar Key Florida where my sister-in-law and niece now live.
I will be visiting you often!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

I had such a great time with y'all, and I love you SOOOOO much. I also love my goodies with which you gifted me. You are the absolute sweetest one, Becky.

I wish you lived around the corner. What fun we would have on a daily basis. But I thank God SO much for your friendship. You are an exceptional lady, one of the loveliest I know.

XO,

Sheila :-)

C'est moi Claudette said...

You forgot your camera??? is that because Mrs. Magpie was there? LOL.
I'm so happy you had such a great time. There really isn't anything better than great blogging buddies.
I'm getting ready to have 6 of my blogging gals here in July. I can't wait. I was shopping for some cool stuff today, all day. I was alone, so not as much fun as you guys, but soon we will all be re-united.
Don't you just LOVE Kim? She was one of my first ever blogs to come across over 2 years ago. LOVE her and Maggie girl.
Well Becky gotta get to bed. I was up early today for a change ; )
Sending hugs to you and yours.

Have a great day!
