Several months ago, Corey and I started having virtual meet-ups for tea and coffee in the mornings (well, MY mornings anyway. LOL) But Friday at 6:50 a.m. in the little town of Willows, CA, it really happened. The place: Starbucks. The players: Corey and AnnieElf (c'est moi!) We were joined by Don and Krista in the festivities. Our schduled stop of 30 minutes turned into 90 minutes. It was definitely a "Let the chatting begin!" moment.
We had so much fun, exchanged small gifts and we had to laugh. I gave Corey a tile coaster I had made a while back and she gave me a pretty stack of eggshell blue and rose printed COASTERS. Great minds think alike. We both were thinking of packing and traveling light.
Just as we were about to leave, we got an extra surprise. Sacha was out and about with his grandmother and they stopped in at Starbucks expecting that we would be long gone and they would not be interrupting. Well, grandmother was almost right and I'm so glad about that "almost" because now I have this wonderful picture of son, mothers and grandmother to treasure and share with you all.
Online, Corey is poetic and mystical. She brings dreams to life and poses fanciful but probing questions. In LIFE, Corey is laughing, outgoing, absolutely BURSTING with life. My favorite picture of her dancing in her great purple/blue dress is exactly as she is in real life.
Corey, those 90 minues were the best. I can't wait for summer.
