Texas Bloggers Meet For Valentine's Day!

Hi Friends
and
Welcome to a special post
sharing  friendships formed in blogland.

We all know how special it is to meet our blog friends in person
and
for a group of us, near by here in north Texas,
 we did just that last Thursday
for a Valentine's Day Luncheon

In Texas, we have formed a group of bloggers who share common interests
and
it all started last Christmas when
 Stacey from Poofing the Pillows
 created
The Christmas in Texas Blog Hop.

On our recent gathering we enjoyed a great time together
over lunch, conversation and fun.

Everyone brought a gift or treat to share with each other.
We all went home with a variety of goodies
which will surly be treasures to mark our get together!


Here's our table all set for the fun to begin.


And here we are, smiles all around!!

As we said our goodbyes till next time,
one more photo was taken by Laura's sweet daughter Alyssa.
Great memories of our time together
celebrating
a special Valentine's Day Luncheon in Texas!

Laura our Hostess from, Decor to Adore

Leslie from, Brookhollow Lane


Have you met bloggers that live near your area?
If so, I know you made a memory too!

Enjoy this special day.
Blessings for a great week ahead

A wonderful thing to stay in contact with blogger friends, if possible, you had such a lovely day I can tell.
For me I have one friend here on the island where I live, and have met with another one, in Copenhagen too- ( 4 hours travel from here, with ferry and bus ) Yes it is fun and we talk together mostly once a week, too :-)
Lovely week to you dear Celeste .
