Not a Stalker After All

So something else interesting happened on my trip to Arizona. Friday morning, my brother's phone rang with a call for me. He said it was Autumn. I immediately went through a list of people in my head to see if I knew anyone named Autumn. The only person I could think of was Autumn over at Autumn Ables. Sure enough, it was her. With a little help from my husband she got my brother's number and called. My brother kidded me that I had my own personal stalker, but Autumn assured me she wasn't. All kidding aside, I am glad she called. We met for lunch and had a good visit and I am looking forward to seeing her again at the LDStorymakers conference in March.

It impressed me that she placed the call. I get stressed meeting new people and if I had found myself in her place, probably would have thought about calling, but getting up the nerve would have been another thing entirely. I appreciate her reaching out and I loved getting the opportunity to meet someone else who shares the writing bug with me. Getting to know others continues to show me how much we all have in common and I love having more people to call friends. Like Autumn mentioned on her blog, having online cheerleaders is a great thing. It really is a small world and I can't wait to meet more of my cheerleaders at the conference this spring and have a chance to visit with Autumn again.

I just tagged you -- and this is one we're supposed to get finished quickly. Come get it!

Here's a suggestion for your proposed Blogger lunch. How'z about you all bring your laptops and sit at separate tables and blog to each other. Seeing each other in person seems so ... unnatural.

Tristi, I would love to get together for lunch on Saturday at the conference. It sounds like great fun.

Rick, you're a hoot -- and it is kind of weird to meet someone you've only been Internet friends with. You wonder, "Will I like them as well in person?" It generally goes over pretty well, though.

Your too funny kids. :)

I think Rick just wants to join us too but can't and so he will be sitting at a table blogging away unanimously just to be at the luncheon! hehe

I would love to meet for lunch Saturday as well. That is if I can make it to the conference...{which I HOPE!}
