I cannot tell you how fun it was to meet these ladies in real life! Since we've all been chatting it up for well over a year -- it was like a homecoming - even though we had never met in person! We all arrived at the same time to the hotel in Shipshewana Indiana and -- isn't it funny how you can recognize someone -- just after seeing a few pictures on the Internet?
We stamped. We shopped. We ate. We stamped. We ate. We laughed and then laughed some more! It was sad to see these ladies go! Janine even ordered these fun shirts!!! It says... "I got stamped in Shipshewana!" Too fun! You might wonder, where the heck is Shipshewana? Well, it is a little Amish town in Northern Indiana. It is very quaint with a homespun feel. It was beautiful country and very relaxing. The only traffic was at the end of the work day when cars shared the roads with the horse drawn buggies!
Here's another pic of the whole crew (minus Darlene who took the picture!)
We wrapped up the weekend promising to do it all over again and I actually felt sad that it will be a year at least before we can all get together!
p.s. I'll be back tomorrow with some actual stamping! Stay tuned!
