But not too busy to slow down for an afternoon of fun!
Yesterday I got to meet my blogging friend…
Teri Dashfield of Images by T.Dashfield.
I have been enthralled by Teri’s photos for a long while.
She is a professional photographer that shares amazing photos almost every day on her blog.
Through many conversations… we found out we were both Ohio girls.
So it didn’t take long for Teri and I to become virtual friends.
We have chatted up and down and all around. She has been wanting to come back out to Arizona for a good while.
Then one day she messaged me and said, “I’m coming to Arizona!”
…we both knew we had to meet.
So yesterday was the day!
We met, had lunch, and laughed and chatted and laughed and chatted.
Believe me… what you see and what you read on her blog… portrays her exactly!
Her wit, her humor, and her smile make her Teri… and gosh… I am so proud to call her my new friend!
Although we were both very sad that our good friend Ingrid from
was away in Texas. But then I am sure we would have had to call sweet, sweet man to come bail us all out of jail! HA HA HA
Blogging has really been a joy because of moments like yesterday!
Until Next Time ~Nancy

It’s always fun to finally meet bloggers after years of looking at each others blogs and exchanging comments. You both look so lovely and happy. It’s wonderful that you were able to get together, and manage to stay out of jail.
Oh, Tim… it was hard! But what a fun day. And you said it perfectly! It’s fun to meet bloggers after years of looking at their blogs! Thanks for stopping by. I am going to catch up with you too… but first I need a cup of afternoon tea.
Oh…my gosh, I’m from Ohio too!!! (Northeastern) Your friends photos are amazing! Thanks for sharing her blog. 🙂
Get outof town! My sister is from Ashtabula. I am from the Cleveland area… but was raised in Edinboro, Pa. where I have a Lake House. So may I ask where you lived in North East Ohio??
I was born in Amherst. (Lorain Co.) My husband is from Cleveland. I grew up in Braceville Township, which is in Trumbull Co. near Warren.
I know it well! I knew I liked you from the get go! Have a great day and I can’t wait for your next post and what outfit you will wear!
Small world, isn’t it?! Have a great weekend!
You as well! 🙂
Very cool! I’m glad that Teri is getting some nice warm weather. I’m glad you had fun.
We did… Her wit is as quick as it is on her blog!
And the neat thing is… we just clicked! (no pun intended!)
How wonderful, Nancy! Love the beautiful smile of these two ladies. Thank you for sharing the happy story with us. 🙂
Thank You Amy for stopping by with such lovely words! I am enjoying an evening of catching up with all my blogging friends… I am stopping by soon. 🙂
How wonderful that you and Teri got to spend the afternoon together! That is one of the great rewards blogging, isn’t it? I was not thinking of the friends I would make when I started. I am amazed, though, at how special that aspect of blogging has become. It’s a gift. Thank you for being my friend, Nancy!
I so heartedly agree. Blogging has brought me such joy. And the friends I have come to know… are the icing on the “Joy Cake!” HA HA HA
And Thank You for being my friend as well!
After chatting and blogging meet on one day, it’s a very exciting
I love to read about bloggers who met on line and have a great time when they get meet in person! When I started my blog I had no idea the blogging world was such a great community. So far I have never met any my blogging friends in person but maybe one of these days…
You never know.
It has been so nice to have met Ingrid and Teri.
Blogging has been such a joy and it is amazing how we all help each other out with tech questions and are their in friendship too.
I’m always telling my husband about my blogging friends! And reading RV blogs has helped us is so many ways.
Oh, I bet! The blogging community loves to share their knowledge… it’s why we blog!
Very special! You both look very pleased about meeting and good for you both for arranging it😊
One day, someday it would be fun to gather at a WordPress Gathering. I know Blogger has their gatherings.
I would love to meet you for coffee. An enjoyable time would be had! 🙂
So fun to meet another blogger in person! Hoping our paths will cross one day too. 🙂
I would love meeting you… Sweet Sue!
A WordPress gathering needs to take place… We would shake, rattle and roll the place down!
Oh it would be marvellous!!
Next time, with Ingrid, we get rowdy!!!!! Looking forward to coming back out one day 🙂
Yes all the small talk is done… Ha ha ha! Make it soon!
And this summer I will be back in the tri-state area! 🙂
One day this will be us, I hope. I’m in the middle of a post about a blogger I met in person. Such a wonderful phonomenmon, this whole blogging and connecting thing! Great post.
Yes… This will be us as well I really hope.
I have been enjoying your creative thoughts on your blog as of late. You are sharing enlightening topics that are fabulous.
Aww, Nancy, you just made my day!

What a lovely post, Nancy. I know Ingrid has talked so fondly of you when she and I managed to meet in 2015 in phoenix. Hope we might rendezvous one of these days 🙂
Would love too!
How fun for both of you! I’ll have to go over to Teri’s site and enjoy some photography. Thank you!

Good thing you two managed to stay out of trouble without me 😆 Too much fun! You gals look great and I can’t wait until I’m able to join next time. At least I’ll be back in Phoenix soon to harass you!
We missed you and more times are coming!
How wonderful to meet up with your virtual friend. I love the opportunities technology has given us to connect with people we would otherwise never meet. It looks like you had a very funl time together. I look forward to checking out Terri’s photography! :))
I am so glad you saw this post. And yes, I do agree with you. The Internet has given us opportunities that we never imagined! Who knows… Our paths may cross one day as well.
