Meeting Julie in London

London, Ontario–that is.

One of the exciting things about blogging is meeting the author of the blog! I’ve had the opportunity to meet several bloggers in 3D. It feels like meeting a celebrity or a famous person!

Julie from DOSE DEPENDANT is a remarkable and beautiful young woman, with an inspirational story: a woman after God’s own heart! Her genuine smile reveals her love and compassion (she is vegan).

meeting Julie in July

I was so excited to finally meet Julie who came to visit from Manitoba. She has family in London, Ontario–which is a fun day trip from where I live in Kitchener.

We enjoyed a relaxing afternoon, feasting on a delicious vegan lunch at a charming  Thai restaurant. I felt like I was meeting a celebrity as well as a long time friend. The experience was very emotional and I’m so happy the opportunity became reality this past summer.

Blogging is more than writing and reading.

Friendships to build; moments to treasure!

Have you met a blogger/bloggers in real life?

    You look lovely in all pictures. I couldn’t post a comment under the newest post. It’s also noticeable that you are getting better and younger looking all the time. Please stop by my other blog: when you get some moment. Merry Christmas!

    That is so great to meet Bloggers in real life. I agree it is more than just writing, I have made wonderful friendships. I met Ralph, you know, I visited him in Spain, and I met Alastair a blogger from Kent, and he came up to London to spend the day together. One day I shall meet you, Carmen, Can’t wait…. 🙂
