Today I met my WW/Blogger Friend Lynne!

Today was a very exciting day for me! I got to meet Lynne my WW/Blogger friend in Greenville, SC. We meet at an Applebees there and had a wonderful time chatting and lunching! Lynne brought me the book, An Irish County Doctor by Patrick Taylor, which I can't wait to read. She is so thoughtful, she remembered John and I went to Ireland for our 25th wedding anniversary 5 yrs. ago! We have always felt a connection to each other and I am so glad we finally got to meet. I told Lynne I thought I met her in 2004 but when I started thinking about it on the way home I think we have known each other since 2002 on the WW Board! We both have 2 daughters and we share the love of books for sure! I hope that we will be able to get together again and catch up some more! Lynne, you are truly a wonderful person and I enjoyed lunching and chatting with you today!!
Here are some pictures of our visit and the ride down there:

This morning I hopped in my car at 10:35 and headed down to Greenville, SC to meet my WW/Blogger Friend Lynne from Georgia. We decided to meet half way for both of us at an Applebee's in Greenville, SC.

As I'm driving along what do I see put this huge peach!! It is actually a water tower in Gaffney, SC. Pretty cool huh!

Here is the giant peach up closer! It is very rich in color!

Here is my wonderful, lovely friend Lynne! It was just like we had known each other forever!

Here is a picture of Lynne and I at Applebees. The nice waitress obliged us and took it for us.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Hi Sherri, I'm visiting from Lynn's blog. I'm envious that you got to meet her. She is one of the first bloggers I
"met" (online) and such a sweetie. I've had the pleasure of meeting two blogging buddies. What fun! Lovely blog you have here!

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!
