Meeting old friends for the first time

This blogging-every-day thing is not easily picked back up, friends – I’d much rather be drifting off to sleep in the super comfy canopy bed in our lovely room at the Front Street Inn, but it takes three weeks to make a new habit and I’ve only got seven days, so here goes.

Today was amazing! Why?

  1. Got to spend lots of quality time with Shauna.
  2. Met Marla and her husband. (She’s wonderful.)
  3. Met Lori and her husband. (She’s also wonderful and is the woman behind the wildly popular Tales of the Bathroom Scale.)

Marla made us a lovely home cooked breakfast before taking us on a tour of her warm, inviting home. We met her husband and her cat, and saw the office from which she blogs. It was a great start to the day.

After a brief 2-1/2 hour drive, we pulled up outside Lori’s adorable cottage-style home. Yes, it’s really as adorable as it looks in the pictures she posts! We said hello to the cats, saw some new kittens on the porch, and then went downtown for coffee and a fun chat. Later on we met Lori and her husband for dinner at the tasty Deluxe restaurant where the food and service were both excellent.

It has been a great first day of Blogger Road Trip 2012 and we still have loads more to see and do!
