When bloggers meet!

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away .... Oops! No, that is Star Wars, this is a story about bloggers who met up through Shimelle's class, Blogging for Beginners, a long time ago! We have been through ups and downs, tears, smiles, sadness and triumphs, but what has been forged through those years is an extremely strong friendship over long distances.
When Deb (Paperturtle) said that she was coming over to London with her daughter Carrie (Rosalind Revival) we had to arrange to meet up.
Carrie and Deb
So, yesterday, 11 bloggers met at Maggie Jones, just off High Street Kensington to eat...

my starter
Chat....

Me, Deb, Mel
Eat some more ...
my main course
More chatting.....
Me and Mel
More eating....
my 'pudding'
Remember Marti (see those little strawberries in each photo of my food? Deb made them in memory of her Mum, Marti who we all supported with Team Teal, as strawberries were special to Marti) ....

Photos - oh so many photos!...
The whole group (taken by a very patient waiter on about 6 different cameras!)
Pay the bill (with a photo of the bill for all those Project Lifers to put into their albums!)...

The bill and cash
Go outside for more photos ...
Ruth being our 'official photographer'
And each have an individual photo taken with Carrie and Deb...

Sadly the afternoon had to come to a close and with much sadness we all had to go our separate ways. We all want to go to Arizona to visit Deb and Carrie and I am sure that we will all meet up again together one day. Sunday was one of the best 'get togethers' I have ever had and I will be smiling with the memories of it for a long time.

Hi Becky ~ We are home safe and sound and exhausted, but I wanted to make the rounds to each of these blog posts as I had read them last week but couldn't comment via my phone.

I'm so happy that you were able to join us for lunch last weekend ~ I loved having the opportunity to meet you and visit with you in real life. I'm so grateful for our blogging circle of friends! xo
