We can't remember if it were Instagram or our blogs but somewhere along the road, several years ago, Billie Jo and I met online. We started leaving comments on each others posts which lead to emails, which lead to us meeting for the first time last year in Disney World. From the first moment of us meeting face to face I knew I was meeting my life long friend. And not only that, our families got along together as much as we did!
This past weekend Billie Jo and her amazing family hosted Rob, John, and I for 3 whole days!
We had the best time doing what we love most...just being together! We laughed, told stories, watched TV in our comfy clothes, made s'mores (which were epic! :) and drank a lot of coffee!
They treated us like part of the family. I felt it everywhere! ♥
We were totally spoiled by their beautiful home!
I mean....look at this deck! So lovely and comfortable! ♥
They boys had as much fun as the girls!!
We also ate some really great food!!! I only thought to photograph this delicious breakfast. I should have taken more photos of Steve's steak dinner and famous omelets.... which were totally blog worthy! I guess I was too busy eating! That's a good thing! ♥
On Monday all of us spent the afternoon at Del Grosso's Amusement Park - a yearly tradition for them that they let us horn in on! It was SO MUCH FUN!
I had the best lemonade I've ever had!
Rides, famous food, games, cotton candy, and more laughs!
I love this picture of me and Madison!!! ♥
Some of us did thrill rides and some of us sat on benches in the shade, ate ice cream, and talked.
We got home that night tired, but full of memories that will last a lifetime!
Sadly, on Tuesday we had to say goodbye. As you can see, my new friends Mocha and Kirby were sad to see us go.... : )
With tears in my eyes I hugged my friends goodbye and headed home. We can't thank you enough for such a wonderful time and we are so grateful for your hospitality! It's not easy to find lasting friends and kindred spirits these days. I feel so blessed to have this family in my life!
Thank you Billie Jo and the Stoltz family!!! We miss you all so much!!! ♥
Have a great day everyone!!! Remember to enjoy the little things in life. They are the most important!
