Hi Chickadees! Have you ever had a blind date in your life? I bet you have. Then you know the apprehension of that kind of situation.
Except this wasn't a blind date in the sense of a real date. Yesterday I met up with two blogger friends who happen to live pretty close by here in Georgia. We had been in touch through our individual blogs for close on a year (?) And it was Tree Hugger AKA Suzan who organized our meeting.
But my jitters were for naught. Suzan was the first to come through the door of Jason's Deli and I recognized her right away from her blog icon. We hugged as two old friends. She is as friendly and sweet as she looks. We sat for awhile and waited for Tammy's arrival, which was perfect...we got to know a little about each other.
Then Tammy of Simple Southern Happiness arrived and I knew her immediately from her strawberry blond hair and cute smile.
You really must check out these ladies' blogs. Tammy has inspired me to learn macro photography and Suz has gotten me very interested in genealogy. That is the cool thing about blogging. You can learn so much from others.
We had a lovely lunch and it was very healthy too:

They are very health conscious as I am too.
But I was the odd ball. I ordered a Mediterranean whole wheat wrap with smoked turkey, roasted red pepper hummus, red onion, olives and lettuce with a fresh fruit side:
Tammy surprised us with some brownies, a recipe that she concocted that contains no flour. It is made with ground flax seeds. And guess what? It was delicious!
I think we were there for a fast 4 hours talking away, never a silent moment. Just like old friends. I can't wait to see them again! I feel so blessed.
May the peace and love of Jesus be with you all today and always!
