Some gratitude is in order for this phenomenal blogosphere! It captivated me quickly, from the start, and has led to some fabulous relationships.

Yesterday served up a stunning ladies’ lunch, courtesy of the gorgeously talented Cindy at The Only Cin, who I’ve now met in person πŸ˜€ Follow that link to her blog to view some beautiful pics from our mouth-watering meal – and of course, the First Sighting Sauvignon Blanc (bottles of it!).

The spoiling didn’t stop at gourmet food, flowing wine, vibrant company, valuable introductions, sun-splashed rain, lingering laughter and lots more. We all got goodie bags for the road. THANKS for everything, Cindy!

What a consummate hostess, which you’ll discover if you follow Cindy’s delightful blog – or The BlaBla Blog where she’s the resident food and wine fundi πŸ™‚

I never, ever, ever get jealous.
That said, I’m jealous. πŸ™

So glad that you had a wonderful time. πŸ™‚

Do you know, I wondered if that was you at the end of the table! It sounds a riot. So chuffed you have met in person:-)

We had a great time, Kate! Would be too cool if we could do an international meet-up πŸ™‚

Too sweet for words, Naoms! I wondered when you two would have the opportunity to meet in person. Sounds as though it was beyond stupendous. Hope you gave Cin a big hug for all the rest of the bloggy family! πŸ™‚

It was a real treat, Amy…just missing some foreign pearls from the bloggy family – like you!!

You bet there are bonuses.. Dang, I thought I was being sweet too, but no one gave me personalized goody bags till now.. Worse yet, the kids seem to get them all and me – NONE..
He he he..
The picture had obviously enhanced the beauty of the gifts!

Cindy spoiled us rotten, Rachana – better than kids πŸ˜€ Wish it could have included you too!

Naomi, I am a big fan of “the only cin.” I’m absolutely sure I would find her as delightful in person as online. What a lovely and talented lady. I’m not surprised to know that she thought of even the littlest details for her luncheon. I didn’t know about The BlaBla Blog though, so I will have to check it out. Thanks for the tip.

Thanks for your wonderful blog and your kind visits to my site.

Warmest regards,

Thank You, Jamie, for your fabulous comments on my site – I so enjoy yours! Time is tight again, but I’ll be back to visit asap…and see how your novel-writing challenge is going πŸ™‚

Cindy is a treat – it would be too cool if more of us could meet, intercontinentally πŸ˜€
