Ohhhhh… I had such fun yesterday meeting my Santa Sack Swap partner Debbie!
We met at Cora’s for a late brunch and didn’t leave until after 1 pm. We just found so much to talk about.
Debbie is such a sweet person. I even got to meet her lovely daughter, V who had come along to keep her mother company on the drive here.
V also manned the camera so that we could share photos here on my blog and for Debbie to share on facebook.
Here we are each holding the gifts we made for each other.
That called for a hug!
Debbie is Queen of her local Red Hat Chapter and after she e-mailed me yesterday’s photos, I texted her back and said that with her in purple and me wearing red, we did look like a couple of Red Hatters! So I couldn’t resist having some fun editing this photo to give me a red hat with purple daisies and Debbie a tiara befitting her exacted station. 🙂
Thanks goes out to the lovely Cheryll, who organizes this swap each year and from half a world away paired up two Canadian women and made this meeting possible. I have made a wonderful new friend!
