Have You Ever Met One of Your Blog Friends?

For the first time ever, I got to meet one of my blogger friends - Berte Hogue from River Bend Farm. She drove all the way down from her farm in Cold Springs to visit with me and it was so much fun!!! We talked for hours and I felt as if we have known each other for a long time. So many similarities in our lives she is a nurse and I was a surgical tech, both of our Fathers were doctors, we both live in "barn houses" and we both have horse fever and have since we were children...and I could go on and on.

She could not have come at a better time. I feel good enough to be bored and fidgety enough to want to do things...but am very sorry if I do too much! What a nice afternoon!

She surprised me with sweet get well gifts:
This beautiful pillow case and

a hummingbird feeder!

...and even gave Don a bottle of Mona Vie. It is not wine, but a acai juice blend that might help him to feel better.Thank you Berte.

What a nice story. I know you really enjoyed Berte's visit. I hope you are feeling better.

I found your blog, riding aside, by mistake, and have really enjoyed reading about your lessons and experiences. I have always wanted to learn and it's great to see someone else learn.

Regards, Vicki Bucy

I am planning on meeting a few blogger friends this Fall for the first time. I can't wait. It's such a great place (blogland) to meet new friends.

I recently got to meet a blogger friend as she was traveling through my town. We had lunch together and I really enjoyed it and wished we lived closer to each other.
Glad you enjoyed your visit with your friend.
