In February of 2008 Willow and I met face to face for the first time and here’s what I wrote about that day…
God is so good to me. He gave me two desires of my heart today! I’ve said over and over again how sweet it would be to meet one of my bloggy friends and how I’d love to have a walking buddy in Southern California after I left my walking buddies in Seattle, Washington. Today Willow and I met and had a walk and plan to walk on a regular basis, keeping each other accountable. How sweet it is! We found each other through other blogs and realized we both live in the same city. We’re in the same stage of life and have a lot in common. Willow shared how she had been praying for someone to walk with. Check out her blog, she has very exciting news today! She became a grandmother!
That was 2 years ago and so that grandson just celebrated his 2nd birthday.
We’ve had lots of fun walking adventures and a some great tea adventures. I’m going to miss my walking, blogging, drinking tea, knitting friend!
I’m also going to miss Dear and my Saturday morning walks at Emma Wood. On many of those Saturdays we’d have breakfast at Allison’s in Ventura and I’m going to miss that place, too.
Another Saturday morning favorite with Dear is this hike off Sycamore Canyon up the Scenic Trail.
I’ll miss the great cooking days with my family here in Southern California and
our fun tea times…and
our breakfast rendezvous at Julienne in San Marino.
I’ll miss our bloggy adventures with Willow and Sara at the Getty Properties and…
I’m going to miss our Saturdays with Tim and Letty…
I’ll miss being close to my parents…
I’ve been blessed both in Southern California and the Seattle area with good friends, loving family, great churches and wonderful adventures.
The Lord gives and the Lord takes away…Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.
