We had my cyber friends for lunch at Garden Shoes Online today. 


Carol and Pete (owners of Garden Shoes Online) graciously hosted a lunch for my blogging pals so they could come and see our business in action.

Kathy Purdy, Jenn Fowler, Donalyn Ketchum, Nicki Conroy and myself ~ It all started about a year ago when Kathy, of Cold Climate Gardening contacted me and after several email conversations, invited me to join her and two other local bloggers (Jenn and Donalyn) for lunch.  Soon after, Kathy also included Nicki whom she met at jury duty.  So our little group began and we try to meet monthly for lunch. 

 I can easily say they have been mentors for me as I attempt to navigate this social media world. We have a lot of fun every time as we learn from each other and laugh with each other about the ins and outs of blogging, facebook, twitter and life in general. 

  So the day was snowy, the company wonderful, the lunch delicious(thanks Carol and Pete and Debbie too~ it looked wonderful) and they all got to meet Gracie my little side~kick who was a very good granddaughter and slept through most of the hours of fun.
