Jeanne from Backyard Neighbor and her husband, Bill, came to our house to visit this past Friday! What a pleasure they are! Johnny and I hated to see them leave, but we made them promise to come again.
I never thought when I first began to blog, that I'd meet new friends--especially face-to-face friends. Jeanne and I "met" in 2008. We have so much in common; we just clicked. Jeanne and Bill have children and grandchildren who live a few hours away from us, and they travel to Florida to visit. For years, I've wished that we could arrange a meeting, but Florida is a big state and we lived down at the tip. Three years ago, we moved from South Florida to the Tampa area, putting us a couple of hours away from Jeanne's family. This year, they made time for us!
I am honored! Pretty Jeanne is on the left. Look at that dimple! She's just as nice as I expected. I am the one with the Blue shirt. (Well, you expected that, didn't you?) See the Blue gift bag? They even brought a gift for me--as if their presence wasn't enough of a gift!
Inside the Blue gift bag, was Blue tissue paper, a Blue card and this wonderful Lenox china. What a generous gift! I adore Lenox, and these Winter Greetings dipping dishes will be used often and appreciated much. I'll think of Jeanne and Bill each time I use them.
Here's a close-up of the Blue card that was inside the package. It's a picture of two Blue cups, along with a spoon.
This note card is a reminder of how great it would be if we could visit over a cuppa often.

I feel so spoiled.
