from the gret stet of arizona

We are on vacation until next Thursday here in beautiful Tucson, Arizona. We love Tucson and come here about twice a year... and another wonderful reason to visit Tucson -

... finally meeting sweet Junie Moon! We had an absolutely wonderful time together and as this photo reveals, not only do I own a terribly unflattering sweater, we met up at a grocery store. No word of a lie. Aren't we a pair? We had such a good visit, and I was the lucky recipient of a beautiful glass-blown ornament made by June's very own gentle hands. The blog has made the world a little bit smaller and much kinder yet again by bringing a new friendship into the world.

Hi from Chandler, AZ. How fun for the two of you to get together. I was supposed to be in Tucson myself yesterday but plans changed. Enjoy your vacation. June and I were both at the Tucson Miniatures show a few months ago and she was even wearing her Club Little House badge but we didn't see each other.

You are funny - the sweater I didn't pay much attention to (it looks fine from here) but I did notice the grocery cart behind you guys. Still so lovely that you were able to meet!

I really really want to go to BlogHer next summer, to have these kinds of joyous meetings with other writers. Alas, the poinsettias will be gone though...

It was so fabulous meeting you and lest folks think we spent our time at some run-of-the-mill grocery store, I want to point out that it was A.J.'s which has fabulous gourment food and things you can buy that make you feel just plain special. And that's how I felt meeting you, my friend! I loved every single second of our time together.

It truly was wonderful - my time with sweet Junie Moon AND snooping around possibly the fanciest grocery store, evah! June treated me to the nicest lunch at the bistro - there was a fireplace and everything!

LOL meeting at a grocery store sounds fun!
Bet you had a great time, make sure you show us the glass blown ornament, sounds beautiful!!!

Yes we have Christmas in the middle of Summer here, I am dying to see a white Christmas though! I bet yours are beautiful in Canada! (also dying to go to Canada and the US!!!)

How fun! If you are ever near Anchorage, we could meet at Nordstrom's. I think it's the loveliest store we have. Sounds like you had a good trip down south.

I can't think of two nicer people and think it is lovely that the two of you met and enjoyed this time together.
Best wishes to you!
