Meeting up with a friend and having fun!

Yesterday was a really fun day! Mom and I got to finally go back to our Stamper groups monthly meeting. We had not been in over a year because of first, her moving, then me moving, then her back operation last February.
The fun part was we got to take a couple of friends with us.
We have known Charlotte for several years now. She is a member of our ATC Yahoo internet group. For as long as we have known Charlotte she has lived in Modesto, California. But this past August we were so lucky because Charlotte and her family moved to Tennessee and only lives about 15 minutes away from us.

Charlotte is originally from Hawaii and she is a very talented artist! She also has a daughter who is an Amazing mixed media artist too. Lotus is still in California and I know that Charlotte and her are missing each other alot! Below is a picture of Mom and Charlotte.
And the next picture is of Charlotte, Mom, Juanita(Charlottes daughter-in-law's mother, who is a sweetie too!) and me!
The place we meet at is in a really pretty part of our county out in the countryside. It was a beautiful Fall day yesterday and the trees are starting to look so pretty. Charlotte and Juanita just loved the drive and talked about how beautiful it is here in Tennessee. They said it was very congested in California were they use to live and how they Love the openness and country side, and it made me appreciate it too.
We had to drive through a little town between us and the place we were going. The name of the town is Charlotte so we had to take the picture below of Charlotte in front of her store.

We really did have a great time yesterday and look forward to alot more fun times with our wonderful friend!
My ear is feeling better today but my sinuses are still a mess. Today we are going to have to drag all of my house plants inside for the winter as the coldest air of the season is moving our way tonight. I dread seeing winter coming and will miss the warmth of summer and fall.
I hope everyone had a wonderful week-end and have a great sunday too!

I just can't get over these pictures Beth. I've met up with Charlotte (lil sis) and Lotus 203 times. Now they are on the other side of the continent meeting with YOU. Awesome. Hi everyone.

Very fun! I have a stamp club at my house every other month, sometimes every month. So glad you were able to get back to yours!

It's fun to see pix of Charlotte after knowing her through ATC Group! (I got a COTM from her last week!).

WAY Cool!

Sounds like such fun!
