I knew when I went to Lucketts, that I’d meet a whole lotta amazing online friends.
But what I didn’t know is how quickly they’d feel like family.
Is it really possible to fall in love so quickly with everyone you run into?
I’ve been asked if I actually travel alone. In the plane, yes. Once on the ground again, not a chance!

I’m truly convinced at this point, it doesn’t matter where you go. When you blog, you have friends all over the world, ready and willing to hang and/or junk with you anytime you like!

Aren’t these types of friendships surreal? We GET each other. Cameras, iPhones, laptops, junk needs and all.
So… when you land in the town of a blogging friend you’ve known forever, but never have had the chance to meet yet, you jump on it.
Marian / Miss Mustard Seed was neck deep into the Lucketts thing and about to run out the door. But she squeaked in a little time for an impromptu visit by Karen and I.
“NO! It’s YOU!!”
It was completely out of this world cool to drop in on Marian. This was a reunion that was WAY overdue. She’s exactly like I imagined she would be. That friendly, smiling friend of mine.
She showed us her home and quite honestly, it felt like walking through a warm, cozy, and VERY familiar museum inside of a house. One we’ve all come to love through her blog.
I couldn’t even say anything at first. It was like, “Am I really here?”
And then the camera came out.
Our visit was short, so this is the only shot I got. But it’s totally my favourite room and was thrilled to capture it myself this round.
And then things got a little silly… I spotted her newly renovated bedroom and knew we had to grab one last chance for something traditionally silly whenever we team up…
In all seriousness, thank-you from the bottom of my heart to Karen, Hometalk and Lucketts for helping to make this trip transpire! Otherwise I would have never been able to meet up with my friends!
(more friends to come!)
