I had the best time!! Coaching in Providence, you ask? No. I mean, that was fine, but I’m talking about my morning with Elyse!! Yes, I got to meet my pal in person on Saturday morning.
This blogging world is an amazing place filled with wonderful people. Elyse and I have been chatting for a long while now (we even had a little summer swap.) When I found out I was going to be in Providence, I crossed my fingers that Elyse might have some free time to meet. She did! Bright and early Saturday morning, Miss Elyse pulled up to my hotel. We ran and hugged each other, started talking and didn’t stop until she dropped me off over 3 hours later. (We could have kept on going, believe me, but I had to be at rehearsal.) As is only natural, we had both been a little nervous about meeting. Would we have enough to talk about? Would it be awkward? ‘Yes’ to the first question and a resounding ‘No’ to the second. It was exciting and such fun. I was positively giddy with delight! Of course, we took lots of pictures because we’re bloggers!
We had breakfast at this wonderful restaurant:
There were metal hearts hanging everywhere – all dressed up for Valentine’s Day.
Both Elyse and I said it seemed like we had known each other for years. Isn’t that the best feeling? My husband told me that the real reason I was going to Providence was to meet Elyse. I think he’s right. It was meant to be.
I brought some little presents for Elyse. She brought some for me. As Elyse would say, ‘Swoon!’
I couldn’t wait to meet Elyse and I was not disappointed. She is fabulous – smart, funny and talented. And I know I’ve found a great friend.
I was so wanted to share the story of our meeting with you that I decided to postpone McCoy Monday this week. It will be back next Monday.
