When I was in MN a couple of weeks ago I had the chance to meet up with one of my online scrapbook friends. I met Sara, screenname Soupdog, at scrapbook.com a couple of years ago.
Last summer I posted a layout of my Grandpa K at a Memorial Day service in Monticello. Monti is 15 minutes from my hometown. She saw the layout and this started the conversation of MN We quickly realized that she lives in my hometown! Her son goes to the school my mom teaches at and she is friends with someone I was in band with in high school. It truly is a small world!
Our trips home are always jam packed with little room for any free time. We've always talked about meeting up but it never happens. This last trip I was able to sneak in a brief visit with her at Panera.
One of these times I'll make it to a crop at Blackwoods (Hi Kathy!) and I'll make sure she's able to join me! She's just as nice in person as she is online!
