Yesterday was a very special day.
Our long time blog sistah Carol B. came up to Wisconsin to especially meet Stephanie.
Carol came all the way from Oregon!! I can't really explain how much Carol was looking forward to meeting Stephie.
They have so much in common and they have formed a very close friendship after meeting in the comments here at Quiet Life.
Carol and I met last summer at a Chipotle's in Rockford. So we're old pals :o)
Steph and I have met numerous times. (and it's always fabulous)
The first best part was when Stephanie walked into Los Nopales.
Carol jumped up and gave her the most warm and long hug ever! It was wonderful.
Carol has a fabulous happy laugh!!
Stephaine is a hoot.
At this point, Carol still couldn't believe she was with Stephie.
After lunch (why didn't someone say...hurry up Donna!!) we drove over to Stephanie's church.
Carol and Stephanie had planned a little...sing a long.
Stephanie can really play the organ but she thinks she is a hack. She is not!
They sang some of their favorite hymns. Carol was thrilled to learn some organ-playing- tricks.
I can hardly believe someone could possess so much talent.
It was so cool to hear Carol harmonize with Steph.
They just love 'church' music.
And Carol was jumping with glee when she learned something new.
The time was too short!
Seriously, someone should have hurried me up.

Our time together flew by. There were happy tears and beautiful music and hearts filled with joy!
Thank you for visiting Carol!!! Oh! And thank you for lunch!
Thanks for inviting me.
Steph. Thanks for being you.
Dining with one's friends and beloved family is certainly one of life's primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal.
People are more fun than anybody.
Encourage one another,
