I’m going back a couple of days for this one. Tuesday’s happiness – while we were in Chicago, Mom, the kids and I had brunch with The Gal! It was a wonderful visit, and Mom and I could have chatted with her all day. She was charming, genuine, friendly, funny and sweet, just as I thought. 🙂 And she was so kind to the kids – talking with Adam about his Lego interests and his visit to the Lego store, talking to (a very tired and shy) Allie about American Girl dolls.
I’m so glad she took the time to meet us. I’ve met with “cyber friends” a handful of times in my 20+ years online, and some visits have been wonderful (one in particular even ended in marriage) and others have been awkward at best. I’m pleased to say this falls in the “wonderful” category.
