Pen Pals United

Had an absolute thrill this weekend.

I got to meet a long time bloggy friend.

As in, in person.

MommyVictory and I virtually met while composing digital scrapbooks. Remember back in the '90's how we'd go to scrapbook nights and cut and tape and embellish 'til the wee hours? Well, online scrapbooking is kind of like that. Except the kids don't get into all your stuff.

So MommyVictory and 4 of 8's Auditory Verbal therapist, AVT Coach, and I met a couple of other friends through online scrapbooking. I've known AVT Coach 'in real life' for many years now, but had not met the rest of the gals face to face...until now.

MommyVictory made a drive south to attend an event I was at this weekend and we got to meet 'for real' for the first time. It was such a delight to hear the voice I've been reading. It was a delight to know, not just the color, but the shade of her eyes.

Friendship acquired through pictures, written words and now arm and arm.

Thanks for coming to town, MommyVictory. I'm so glad to have you in my web and my 'real' life, however those lines intersect.
