Lin's Big Adventure!

Couldn't wait to post these few pictures of our day today.  I got to meet my sweet friend and Hero Arts Hostess sister Virginia Lu at Disney World, where she and her family have been vacationing.  I also got to meet for the first time the adorable Savannah O'Gwynn, who lives in an adjacent town here in FL!  She and Virginia are on the Etsy Inspired design team, and this was also her first meeting in real life with Virginia.  Here we are with Virginia's well-travelled poster proclaiming our love of Hero Arts.  (I think Virginia and I may have made another convert!?)


Virginia and I have been friends for 2 years, but this is the first I've met her, and now I've made a new friend in Savannah!  How's that for a 2-for-1 deal? 


We got to spend most of the day together, shared a meal, and even had some time to get outside in the gorgeous Florida sunshine and enjoy some of the grounds.


I hope I can speak for all of us to say that we all had a fabulous time! 


And may I also give a shout out to all of our husbands who patiently took these pictures, listened to our endless card-making conversations, and gave us this time with each other.

Sweet! You girls all look fabulous, happy and in your element! And short sleeves! I am so envious! Sitting here with a long sleeve heavy turtle neck on, jeans, and my 'serious' cold weather long undies on under my clothes!
