A Blogger Brunch…does it get any better than this?

We had such fun meeting with blogger buddies from all over this area!

Penny from Comforts of Home and her hubby were the perfect hosts for our special brunch and shopping fun!

Just imagine the HUGS…chatting….LAUGHTER and fun!

It was definitely a high point for my blogging experience! Blogging will never be the same!

We enjoyed a beautiful day here in Asheville and I hope we can do it again soon!

But..but...I could have bought a ticket and flown to Florida and taken a limo and...no? I couldn't??
You are right! But what a great thing it would have been to meet you and Penny. I don't know the other ladies but would travel to see the two of you...
I just noticed that Penny has changed her hair. I haven't the nerve to do that. It was a nightmare growing mine out...but she looks cute as can be! All of you look wonderful! YOU look younger!!! So did Penny! I think..I am about one of the oldest bloggers on here...and it...is..sort of ...an odd feeling.

YOu looked like you all had a most wonderful time! I wish we would have one here in California...but so far I've heard nothing..and no..I don't want to be the one that starts it. NOPE! Still I hope someone does some day...it would be nice.
Hugs..

Hi Diane, I love what you posted about the blog party. It was a wonderful time spent together with all of us having something in common. I was so happy to meet you and all of the girls as well. Great friendships made with a great hostess going to all the work of entertaining us too. A wonderful day.

OK...I remember when Kim attended this. In fact I wanted to go as well, but my husband was working. Looks like so much fun Diane. Thanks for sharing with me. I will be taking my camera along. We will probably forget to take pics.
