If you have an opportunity to visit IRL with a bloggy friend, seize that chance!
Saturday was that opportunity for me. After weeks of planning, battling colds and funky Southern weather, Petra from This Good Steward and I were finally able to exchange our cyber-hugs for real ones.

Larri and Petra (This Good Steward)
We found a central location for our meet-up (and one of my favorite places to visit!) in Gastonia, NC at Mary Jo's. How exciting it was to introduce the Mary Jo's empire to Petra. I loved seeing her beautiful blue eyes widen as we walked through the doors and she took in all that fabric!

Unless you've experienced it, I'm not sure I can explain the instant connection you feel when finally meeting a bloggy friend. Your friend, who has been part of your life through words, becomes part of your life through a tangible moment. It's exciting and fun in a nervous energy sort of way. ☺ I have more to share with you about this meet-up, though it will have to wait until later this week.
Thank you, dearest Petra (and Rick!), for spending your Saturday with LittleGirl and me. We loved every minute!
