Another week, another delightful visit with beautiful online friends.
This time it was the charming Diane of Journey of a Mother’s Heart who paid San Diego a visit. Erica did the honors, opening her lovely home to me and my brood, Kristen and her sweet girls, and Diane and her sister-in-law and adorable nephews. What a fun day. I already knew I was going to love hanging out with Diane; her warm, funny, generous, lively spirit won my heart a long time ago.
Wonderboy was smitten too.
Delicious lunch, stimulating conversation, busy children, snuggly babies: a perfect morning. The time passed too quickly, is all.
All right, who’s next?
(And Erica, thanks so much for providing the cookie-decorating for the children. They were thrilled, and it got me out of having to muster a Valentine’s craft myself. Hee.)
On the CPSIA front: Alicia has started an Illegal Books Meme to help spread awareness of the issue. I’ll be chiming in as soon as I can upload some pictures of books it would now be illegal to sell.
Another wonderful gathering 🙂 And I see you got the baby in this time too 🙂 He looks so snug in your arms – how do you ever manage to put him down?
The CPSIA thing boggles my mind and hurts my heart.

Well, I dont know that I would count as a blog friend but since you specifically asked “Who’s next?” I’ll mention: My family and I are going to be in Southern California (Disneyland & Carlsbad) almost the first two weeks in March. Up for trying a meet up?
