Tickled Pink


Yes, I was absolutely tickled pink . . .



so I packed some pink boxes with a picnic lunch and headed for the airport one recent Saturday . . .




to meet a fellow blogger who flew into the area to meet up with friends for a girl's get away.


Laurie

Yes, I am tickled pink because I got to "chat" live with Laurie! You may know Laurie from her blog, Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie. Laurie had flown in to meet some of her friends from high school days to celebrate birthdays together at a friend's lake house. She and her friend, Susie, had an hour layover before meeting up with another girl and driving to the lake house where they would spend a week with friends. Laurie contacted me to see if we might meet for lunch, so with only an hour to work with, we decided on a picnic at the airport.


Sarah and Susie

Laurie's friend, Susie, was with her so there were three of us for lunch. For those of you who follow Kathy @ Life in the Slow Lane, Susie is her sister-in-law. Go visit Kathy's blog and you'll discover there are several previous post about this charming lady.


Laurie and Sarah

So here we are, two bloggers who met in cyber space because of a shared interest in Quimper. I felt like we had been friends for years. I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was to sit and chat with Laurie and Susie, two absolutely delightful ladies. An hour may not seem like a long time of chatting and getting to know each other, but we found that we share a lot of things in common. It was such a treat to meet Laurie and Susie.

I was thrilled when Laurie wrote to ask if we might meet for lunch while she was in the area. I have followed Laurie's blog since I started this adventure in Blogville last August. She has the best sense of humor and is so talented. Check out her blog Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie to get a peek at her trip to Texas. Looks like Laurie and her friends had a fabulous week together.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll leave me a comment below to let me know you were here.

I'd like to recommend you visit Ana @ A Petite Cottage. She is one of the new participants for Pink Saturday. Last week she posted the most charming little pink bear in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but take a look at some of her other posts. Ana is amazingly creative and talented.

Then click here to go over to Beverly's @ How Sweet the Sound to see a list of others with Pink Saturday posts.


Happy Pink Saturday!
