Two Events of EPIC Proportions


Hello old friends! I'm trusting my blog post record that I've really been gone from here as long as it says because it hardly feels that long. Dear September kept me whirling in a crazy dance and I would be in severe doubt that it was really an entire 30 days except that each one was so packed with things to do and jolly moments.

Now for the two events: Heidi and John got married (more on that anon) - which was pretty great and leads very much to the other thing... I've met Olivia and Natalie.


I'VE MET NATALIE AND OLIVIA!!!!

I can still hardly believe it, except that it just feels so right. I admit I was rather nervous, over-the-moon-excited yes - but a little nervous all the same. We were such good friends on the internet, what if we didn't click in real life? And then Friday morning came and I saw Natalie (she arrived first) and... I hardly know what to say except that... GOD IS SO SPLENDID! Then Olivia came and we all hit it off from the first, sure we hadn't met each-other before, but we knew each-other all the same. :)


The whole weekend was a tingly I'm-just-taking-off-my-shoes-and-will-go-till-my-feet-take-flight sort of dance and that literally happened several times. And there was laughter, so very much laughter.

Oh yes, and I met Rosie and Jessica, too!!! Didn't I say something about this being a crazy weekend? :) I didn't get to talk with them very much, but seeing them at the wedding was very fun.


My family stayed at the hotel over the Wedding days and one of the best parts was randomly running into the girls; just the happiness you know?

My cup overfloweth with all the splendid memories. With happiness taking wings as we danced together with a  band of little ones at the wedding. Then there was the Great Movie Shindig with pizza and leftover ice-cream from the rehearsal dinner. Belle was the choice and it was amazing. (The part where he starts shouting "Yes I love her!" is rather startling and oh so sweet that I can hardly believe it.) 


The whole visit had so many group hugs and gripping of hands when the excitement became too much (which was quite often. :)) and I'm just SHRIEKING INSIDE RIGHT NOW!!!

Natalie and Olivia are as sweet and warm and caring and brimming with fun in real life as they are through their blogs. Being side by side with them was truly the best thing in the world. Here is to it happening again girls! :)

  6. Ok, as I'm working on my own post, I came over and began re-reading this, and realize I am sane enough now to leave my second comment. ;)

    "It just feels so right." Yes, exactly!! It's so hard to wrap my head around, but at the same time it's just...I don't know. Perfect. :)

    I was nervous, too!!! But oh yes, God is indeed very splendid. Only moments after I met you and Heidi I felt so comfortable, as if we were simply old friends meeting up after a long separation. :)

    I will always love the memory of you and I only knowing Olivia's last name when we were trying to find her room and then waiting expectantly in front of the door until she opened it...ahh, it was just SUCH fun having so many "meet-ups" happen at different times! It drew the magic out, don't you think? :)

    The dancing, the laughter, the happiness. YES TO IT ALL. And eek! Running into you randomly in the hotel was such happy occurrences. :D

    I'M SHRIEKING INSIDE WITH YOU!!! *hugs*

    I'm going to treasure each memory from the trip forever. It was one of the most amazing things that ever happened to me. <3

      -As if we were simply old friends meeting up after a long separation. :) - I love the way you put it and it was just the same with me!

      When we were trying to find Olivia's room - That was hilarious and, oh so fun. :)

      And oh, yes on the drawn out magic, in fact, I think the whole week-end was sprinkled with glorious reams of it. :)

      Thank so much for this entire delightful comment sweet friend!

  8. Hi Eowyn! I can't remember if I ever commented on your blog before, but better late than never, right? ;)

    This post was SO sweet! I'm really, really happy for you girls that you finally got to meet!! And I totally understand your feelings of nervousness about the initial meeting, because I'm sure I would have felt the same way had it been me. But oh! I'm SO glad you girls hit if off! And I hope very much you'll be able to meet again soon! :D

    1. Miss March,
      *gives a welcoming hug* I'm so glad you stopped by. :)

      Hee, hee. :) I comforted myself a lot before the event by telling myself "they probably feel the same way" - and they did! So there is the kindred spirit thing at work for you. :)
