Meeting a Kindred Spirit

I got to meet one of my favorite bloggers yesterday --  Lainie of Peaceful Home!!!   She and her family were traveling home from Florida  . . . and my house just happened to be on the way!  :)  What fun! 


It is so neat to actually meet people that you've been reading about and looking at pictures of for a couple of years!  I felt like I already knew Lainie, even though we had never met in real life!  Lainie and I are definitely  "two peas in a pod!"  We are both homeschooling mothers of large families who enjoy organization and "implementing new systems;" we both drive big vans (well that is about to change for one of us!); we both worked as technical writers back in "the day;" and we were both born in the awesome month of September!  :)


Unfortunately, the Stumpfs still had many miles to travel, and only had time for a short stop at our house, because I think Lainie and I could have talked and shared ideas for hours! 





Bryan and Lainie have some adorable children, who were very glad to be out of the van for awhile!  Our boys quickly connected with the help of the nerf guns!  Here are some pictures that Hannah took while they were here:

Aaah, how special that you were able to enjoy such sweet fellowship with your "kindred spirit"! It is neat how God has blessed you with so many special friends via the blogging world.

BTW, I really LOVE that bedroom! The white bunk beds really look great, and I am jealous of the extra room...enough for a "sitting area" complete with the white wicker rocker!! It looks like a page in a magazine!

We should consider bunk beds too as they really do give so much more room! Our bedrooms are small, and they are so cluttered with just beds, dressers, and a desk! I just hate making them...and I have always been fearful someone would fall off and get hurt!

Awww! I totally agree! The Stumpf's are some of my favorite people ever and am so blessed to have called her friend for many years now. What a true blessing for you ladies to get to meet up and enjoy each other even if just for a bit. I am sure that will not be the last time!:) Thanks for posting pics of your time together. Loved them!!!!
