Wonderful Day Spent with Blogger Friends in Arden, NC!!!

It all started Friday afternoon! One of my blogger friends, Angie jsimplylive.blogspot.com came for a visit. We were driving up to Penny's Blogger Brunch (Penny is from thecomfortsofhome.blogspot.com) on Saturday. We hit if off right away! Angie is a wonderful and very special person.

Saturday we hit the road around 7:10 a.m. with another fellow blogger, Rhondi (rhondisrosecoloredglasses.blogspot.com) What a lovely ride it was up to Asheville. We were the first ones to arrive at Penny's and what a lovely home tour she gave us! It was so exciting to meet Penny finally and what a wonderful feast she gave all of us. Thank you Penny!!!

Other bloggers started to arrive, we chatted, laughed, ate, shared and just plain enjoyed each other! After our wonderful Brunch we piled into our cars and drove to 3 different antiquing locations. I have never seen so many antiques! Then we all drove back to Penny's, said our goodbyes and then we drove back to Charlotte.

Angie treated my husband and I took dinner at The Big View Dinner, which was another wonderful, delightful treat! Angie stayed with us for Saturday and then unfortunately our wonderful weekend had to come to an end. I really enjoyed meeting Angie and all the other bloggers. Penny what a wonderful thing you did to open your home to all of us, cooking for us and keeping us all straight on the antiquing adventure-thanks so much!!!

Here are some pictures of our adventures (More pictures to come also):


This is the whole group at our Blogger Brunch at Penny's!

I am so jealous! Sounds like a truly wonderful weekend! Your photo's are beautiful Sherri! Your banner photo is gorgeous!! I'm always impressed with the books you read. Did you like The Wednesday Sisters? I saw that at Target and was going to get it but have too many other books to read right now. My book club just read, "Girl in Translation". It was excellent! Your blog is looking real good!!

Sherri,
We did have a great time, didn't we? It was great to meet you. Penny's home was every bit as lovely as I thought it would be. You sure got some pretty goodies for white Wednesday when we went antiquing.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
