I've been sunning my buns in Florida for the past month. Ahhhh! One of the highlights of the trip was getting to meet Karen. I've known her for about 5 years or so but we have never met IRL. We've talked on the phone, e mailed, you name it, but never have come face to face.
I've admired her sense of style, elegance and class from the cyber world for a long time. She's smart and sweet and funny and a bad influence when shopping. Just kidding. I really do regret not buying that dress at Ann Taylor. I should have listened to her. ;)
We are often in the same state but I'm in Miami and she is Tampa...5 hours apart. So, we researched a midway point to meet, Naples and planned to have lunch and shop. Due to horrendous directions from mapquest, it took me 3 hours or more (I'm not sure because I was delerious from the heat and long drive thru the everglades) to get there when it should have only taken me a little over 2. But, I made it and I had a lovely afternoon. Next time we should make it a weekend thing! :D
At the end of the day, we asked this young girl to take our photo. Even tho my hair is a mess and my makeup all smudgy, I'm so glad I have a memory of this day.
