I love meeting bloggers.

Like I mentioned earlier, I had the pleasure of meeting up with the darling Vanessa of The Velvet Bird yesterday afternoon. Meeting bloggers is nerve racking every time (at least I always expect it to be), but within a matter of minutes things always turn out better than fine. That's pretty much how it went yesterday, too.

Vanessa's husband is on tour with his band, so she's taking this opportunity to travel all across the country with them. Yesterday they made a stop in Little Rock before heading to there show in Conway. They dropped the pretty bird off at my front porch in a big white van, and we made a girls day of the rest of the afternoon –– thrifting at Saver's, eating Mexican at Rumba, and taking picture in my living room. We forgot to take photos before the sun went down, but I knew we had to at least get some photos together. They're not the best (she's precious in them), but at least we got to record this moment!

We discovered that we had so many things in common, including complicated family stories that are sooo unbelievably similar. It was sort of strange to have someone understand some aspects of my family like she did. After it was all said and done, I drove her to the show in Conway, gave her a hug, and sent her on her way. I'm so sad that she's gone, but now it's just an excuse to go to Georgia.

Thanks for coming to visit, Vanessa!
