Meeting Blog Friends


The best part of blogging is all the wonderful new friends we meet, wouldn't you agree? Today, I got to meet one of my blog friends in real life! Tracey McNeely and I had lunch together in Toronto to celebrate our impromptu collaboration at CASology last week, when Melissa had to hand the controls over to us while she went a little earlier than expected to give birth to lovely baby Bryna!

Tracey and I had a wonderful lunch and were chatting away like old friends the whole time. Which, of course, we are - we've 'known' each other since Melissa brought us together as members of the CASology DT last summer.

For dessert, we indulged and had these little warm Italian donuts, served on a bed of lemon curd and cream, and the waitress insisted she bring us a little caramel sauce on the side. YUM!

And speaking of dessert, don't forget to play along with this week's CASology Cue Card. The deadline is Sunday at 4:00 pm CST.

Your beautiful smiles must be the post-donut look! I wonder if the doughnuts were Bomboloni, a delightful treat I had in an Italian restaurant in NYC.
Beautiful cards, wonderful blog ...
