A Little Birdie Told Me...

Steviewren and Me

...that I was going to adore steviewren, and it was right!

We met up at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens yesterday afternoon, and just had a lovely time. She brought along two of her granddaughters, her daughter and her adorable 6 month old grandson. I brought Dr. SmartyPants and the bugs.

It's so interesting, this global community in which we live. I saw them walking into the gates, and knew who they were, having never met them. We started talking and already knew so much about each other that it was more like catching up with an old friend than meeting a new one.

I gave her the bluebird painting and she let me choose one of her gorgeous and expressive faces that she draws. If I had a scanner, I'd scan it and show it to you, but I'll have to wait until I get back to Arlington for that.

If you ever have a chance to meet up with one of your blogging buddies - do it! We're so blessed to be able to meet such wonderful folks online - people we'd never connect with definitely makes you feel a little less alone in this world, doesn't it?
