Welcome back to my blog and to one of my favorite places in the world! One of the biggest reasons that I love it so much is my incredible friends that I have made online!!
About two weeks ago though, Hope sent me a very exciting text!!!
I’m not going to say how far I had to drive to get to where Hope was going to be, but every minute was worth it! 😜 Anyway, I told her I was close enough that my mom might drive there! Hope got excited!!
So, first I’m gonna take y’all back to a special day on Christmas morning bright and early! Hope and I were both up at 5 am and we started talking…
So, on Christmas morning, Hope and I officially adopted each other! 🎉💖
And, yes, we got questions sometimes 😜😝😂…
And those are just 4 incidents that I was able to find on my blog! There are more! 😜😝😂
Hope and I started texting on Pinterest and then switched to hangouts recently so we could video chat! So when I received that text message after knowing Hope for like 7 months, it seemed so crazy! 😮😮
We didn’t know yet if it would happen so we were hoping and praying and then…I asked my mom! She said yes and Hope and I went crazy! 😜😝🙈
And Hope asked questions like…
Soon, it got really close to the time of…
And then the moment came when my mom and I walked into the hotel lobby…
For those of you who haven’t met a friend you started talking to online or through writing, there is no way to put into words how real it gets. You think you know ahead of time…
I mean you imagine it enough times in your head, discuss it enough to almost feel how real it will get…
There is no way to give you that feeling of that kind of real. It’s like someone you’ve never seen face to face was just dropped right down in front of you and there they are, but it’s so crazy!!! It doesn’t feel weird though or like you are talking to a stranger…it just feels like a friend you haven’t seen in awhile or something. 😂😛
I was shaking so hard when I walked through those doors. I just remember turning my head right and I had a split second glimpse of a Hope, but it happened too quick. I can just hear Hope yelling,”Lizzy!” I can barely see her fly off the chair and then she just hit me! And we were hugging and hugging for like a full minute.
Hope is even more sweet in person!! She’s an absolute doll! I loved every second of being with her!! She gave me several gifts which was so thoughtful!
We talked about blogging, AIO stuff, AG dolls, and a whole bunch of random things!! It was a blast and I tried to soak in every minute of the only hour we had together!! I also met her younger brother and he was super awesome and funny!! I had lots of laughs from talking with him! 😎😝
Of course, that time came when we had to say goodbye. It wasn’t easy for sure! You really do know how it’s going to be again. You know it may be a long time before you hug again and get to hear each other laugh in person. I hugged Hope as long as I could, but then I had to go. 😢💖💕
It was a sad trip home, but I was still so pumped that I met my little adopted sis! 💞💞😄
Hope will be posting about us meeting on her blog later today! Go check it out and follow her if you don’t, HERE!! 😊
Can’t wait to meet all my dear friends online! 😉💞😢 Love ya’ll so much!!
