Happy Hearts

February 14, 2009 @ 12:07 pm | Filed under: Friends


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.

  1. 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.

  2. What a lovely group!!
    My children can’t stop talking about how much fun they had with Wonderboy.

  3. We HEART Diane!!

    Maybe one day we’ll make our way down!

  4. Wah! I’m jealous!

  5. 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?
