...than meeting 'you's guys'.
(see that's what I really say - but I usually type y'all - I'm from Chicago, y'all!)
About ten days or so ago - I had the immense pleasure of meeting TWO of you's guys.
(don't fuss at me for posting this picture Mirjana - you are beautiful in and out)
She's been a long time blog reader - and actually one of my first commenters.
She lives locally, but right when we planned on meeting - sweet Mirjana was diagnosed with breast cancer, and has been battling it since.
Please remember her in your prayers.
She is the lovliest thing.
She served us turkish coffee.
and spread before us a feast fit for kings...
she absolutely adores Aaron and calls him 'her beautiful angel' regularly.
She painted this picture for me - I'm not kidding.
I find myself trying to pin 'one word' on people I meet - and if I chose a word for Mirjana it would be courage.
Now - I'd like y'all to meet Jaimie.
Great name, eh?
Jaimie and I have been emailing back'erds and forth for a while -
She came here in March and met me -
and I finally made it to her pad.
Behold the cutest house on the planet.
It's a Sears kit house.
600 sq. feet of fabulousness.
I want it.
Jaimie - another sweetheart.
She exudes this peaceful feeling that you just like being around.
and she weaves -
I know, right?
You's guys are so cool.
We walked around her neighborhood to a gluten free cafe - as in there wasn't a strand of gluten to be found....
and I ate a sandwich and an oatmeal cookie!
It was divine.
My word for Jaimie is peace.
I just want to take this time to thank each and every stinkin' one of you's guys for the kindness, support, and encouragement you've shown me.
I've met quite a few of ya now, and I can truly say - I have made 'real life' friends with so many.
I'm truly grateful for the time you spend here reading this drivel, and taking the time to comment.
I continue to shake my head in wonder 'what have I done to deserve all this?'
