I got to meet Carol from Just Me C !
With our dear daughter Brady in tow (actually I was the 'in tow' as Brady did the driving) we left Calgary and headed out to Canmore, a beautiful ski resort town in the Rocky Mountains, about 1 hour away from Calgary. Our itinerary - a cup of coffee, a little bite of a treat and the best part...to meet Carol!
What a thrill!
We arrived at the restaurant a bit early, but minutes later Carol walked in and came right over to our table. Huge hugs all around...followed by conversation similar to what two longtime friends would engage in! We talked about biking, and work, and crafts, and shopping, and cooking, and weddings, and travel....
Carol is a absolute gem!!! The first thing I noticed were her eyes! Beautiful 'smiling' brown eyes full of warmth and kindness. She is funny, entertaining and beyond sweet....just like her posts! Honestly, I could have sat there for the entire day! We still had so many topics to cover....but Brady and I had to get back to Calgary for a dinner date with Brady's boyfriend Jeremy!
Here we are in the restaurant, enjoying some yummy goodies and each other's company! The picture says it all - we were thrilled to have had this opportunity to meet! The best thing is that Carol lives only one hour away from Brady so I know that there will be more visits in the future...as early as this summer! Like Carol would say...YAY times a million!
Doesn't Carol look amazing! See what I mean about her 'smiling' eyes! And although Carol likely won't agree with me - I love her hair! Me...well I've decided that I need a haircut and that a horizontal striped shirt does not work well in a photo! But you know what? That part doesn't matter. The real life friendship is what it is all about!
My apologies Carol for the tardiness of my post. We have been "computerless" for the past week while our new rig was getting all readied for action!
