So Much Awesomeness



Give me a break. I somehow managed to catch this dumb cold my family got (LITTLE KIDS STARTED IT) and now the cold medicine is making me woozy.

Stupid cold aside, onto the awesomeness.



First of the awesome awesomeness is Mr. Douglas Bond, who has been mentoring me for a few years, interviewed me on his blog. *insert crazy dancing and squealing* Isn’t that wonderful?!? I’m so blessed to have him as a mentor.


Second of the awesomeness is I got to meet Miss Jesseca Wheaton of Whimsical Writings!!!! She was visiting Emily McConnell, whom I’d met a few months prior. Emily and I really hit it off back in April, but due to busy schedules hadn’t been able to meet up since. It was wonderful for me to see Emily again, and meet Jesseca at the same time!

*sighs happily* We had such a good time together. We met at a coffee shop and talked there for three hours (though it felt like 5 minutes). Emily and Jesseca had to go home after that to be available for some younger siblings, but Emily invited me to come along so we could keep talking. (How sweet is that?!?) We talked and laughed for another three hours–and definitely could have kept on going! It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. We exchanged books, contemplated the woes of focusing on any given project (well–that was just Emily and I. Jesseca is very good at focus and concentration), talked about coffee, played with Emily’s animals, drank apple cider …

And oh my goodness, Jesseca is such a sweetheart. I’m so glad it worked out to get together. We’re already scheming for next time she comes!!! :)


Just as a side note, if you ever get the chance to meet any of your blog friends, DO IT!!!!! It is SO MUCH FUN!!!!!!

    I seriously got the notification on this post TODAY. Ahem. Apologies my dear girl. ;)

    Loved this post! Hahahaha, I think you and I did most of the talking, being extroverts to the core. Sweet, innocent Jesseca sat and observed and added wise things to say to the conversation, because she’s just that awesome. XD Glad you had fun with us! And loved this post! :D

      Haha…no worries. For some reason, all my blog comments and emails are going to spam, so I’m not even seeing them until I log on… ugh. Technology.

      Anyway, I’m glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, you’re very right…I hope we didn’t scare her. She was very good at keeping us on track. ;-)
