Meeting Friends from SP

Friday, April 12, 2013

As you start out in SparkPeople it is exciting to write to, and become friends with, people from all over the world. And sometimes these friends become so close they are right up there on the same level as the people you have lunch with on a regular basis -- you write to them on Spark Mail, or perhaps even on your own personal email addresses. Yes! They are real.

Last week I had a chance to meet with one of those mystical figures who I had never dreamed I would have the chance to hug and talk with in person. I live in Arizona -- my friend lived in far-away Canada. When I heard she would be in the vicinity of Phoenix, I immediately invited her to my home -- here's the result:

Here are the 3 of us together - SCOTMAMA - LYNETTEMOM (and Lynette's BF) Please excuse the X-rated statues in the background (souveniers from Peru)
And here are the two vacationers looking happy and rested!

    That is why I just love my 518 Spark Team here in Upstate New York. We can make a date for exercise or lunch or just to get together to chat over what is working and what isn't. Great support ! It is so wonderful so meet the people that you are sharing with. So glad that you had that time together.

I hate to say this, but the first thing that I was looking at in the pix was the White Kitties in the background. I just love to see how others decorate their homes. Always have ! I think it is interesting to see your collection and then think about the fact that you just got a White Cat !

Have a great weekend !

    Thanks, Eve--and George, our able photographer!
I think I have managed to save them to my computer and will try to add them to my Spark page too.
It was great to have the opportunity to meet you.

    How nice that you got to visit with one of your Spark Friends! I'm going to be taking a trip to Oregon in October and already have made plans to meet with one of mine who lives there. Nice pictures, thanks for sharing.
