Look who I met today! The Georgia Bloggers Planning Committee

Yvette and I finally met!
(Isn't she just the cutest!!!)
Yvette is from
The Charm House
http://thecharmhouse.blogspot.com/
We had been wanting to get together to plan the
Georgia Bloggers Spring Getaway.
What a delightful time we had!
I wish you all could have been there too.
Sweet Yvette has so many irons in the fire with two spring weddings, her business, her beautiful crafts and church, I am surprised I was able to capture her for a second. 
But they always say
"if you want something done ask the
busiest person, they will get the job done".
We met at MiMi's Cafe for lunch (great food). 
We talked and talked about blogging,
weddings, blogging, life, blogging,
and our mutual love of the Lord.
We had such a good time.  We kinda' sorta' decided to meet more of the Georgia Bloggers in Braselton, GA
the first Thursday&/or Saturday of April. 
(Someone has to start somewhere)
Details will follow once I have gone to Braselton and arranged a place for lunch, maybe a craft, then antiques & shopping.
Yvette suggested:
"We then take from the
April group ideas for a
huge October festival
 of sharing our arts & crafts. Then opening that up to any blogger who might want to have tables to
display our creative goodies for sale.  
We will "try" to have the event in one of the gorgeous
 mansions in Braselton area."
(Braselton is easily convienently located right off Interstate 85.)

What do you think?

Would the first Thursday work okay for the
Georgia Bloggers meeting in April?
or
Would Saturday the first weekend of April be better for you?

Let's vote!!!

(We KNOW some of you will have jobs to go to but maybe you might be able to arrange a day off with relaxation,
new friends, and inspiration galore.)
We want to make it so that the next time
everyone will be excited about a fall festival event.
I want to meet every single one of the Georgia Bloggers and/or anyone else who might be able to come to meet all of the sweet Georgia peaches.
Please pass around the word and let me know what 
everyone would like to do.
"Yvette, it was such a sweet pleasure to meet you!!
I am looking forward to many many more lunches
 and chats together.  Sweet Blessings to you!"
Thank you for your ideas and comments.
Sharon

Hi, this sounds like so much fun. I am glad you has such a great time with Yvette. I also have a friend with that same name. It is not very common.

What a fun time you must have had!!! And the get together you are planning sounds divine.

And for your sweet words of comfort for my loss... THANK YOU!

THE HOUSE SCREAMS WITH QUIET! Her rugs are still there, the food bowl gone but, SHE is everywhere I look... yet no where to be found. My heart is broken & I feel so ALONE!
The love of my friends & fellow bloggers have been amazing & I know you guys will help pull me through. HUGS! Charlene
