I'm getting ready to leave D.C. and I will post more about my journey, but for now I wanted to let you know about last night...
Marie got off work, came by the hotel and we indulged in a little food, a couple of drinks and great, fun conversation.
You know how you get the image of someone in your mind? You think you know the way they sound or how tall they are? Well, I knew Marie was pretty, just by the photos on her blog, but I wasn't prepared at how beautiful she really is. I was waiting in the lobby and this tall, stylish, gorgeous woman comes walking in. I sort of recognized her from the pics on the blog, except that she was about 4 inches taller than I had imagined. "Marie?" I ask. "Dina!" she says.
It was fantastic meeting her. We have several things in common outside of blogging and I'm pretty sure that if we lived in the same area, we would get together often for more food, more drinks and a whole lotta more fun. If you get the chance to meet up with your blogger home-girl/hand-grenade, by all means do it!
Marie, thanks so much for the causerie. And if you are ever in my neck of the woods, we'll have to do it again.
Stay tuned for more of my visit to D.C.
