Well to my amazement she did come to the cookie exchange! It was a busy day and we did not really get a chance to talk much, but as fate would have it she left her platter and containers. So we met for coffee and I delivered the containers. I remember driving to the coffee shop worrying about what to say. Did we have anything in common? What if it was awkward... Three hours and 45 minutes later, we finished our coffee!!! Nothing to worry about there! During the coffee I told her about my secret desire to take really good pictures with a really good camera. She encouraged me to go for it and I did. I saved my money and bought a Canon Rebel XSi.
We met a second time for coffee, this time with our cameras in tow and she gave me some pointers on my new camera. We sat in the coffee shop through the breakfast crowd and then the lunch crowd talking and taking pictures! This is my new friend Robin! I would encourage you to click on the link and check out her blog, Bird Tweets. Her photography and writing are beautiful!
Have you made a new friend lately? You should try it, it's good for you!
