My Friend Michela x

One of the things I love most about blogging is the genuinely lovely people I've gotten to know.
It is so nice to share ideas and thoughts.
I have also found, more recently, that the immense support, kind words and advice offered by my blogging friends has really made a world of difference!
During my unexpected visit to Venice I got to thinking what a travesty it would be not to try to meet with the fabulous Michela who has been among those wonderful new friends.
Hoping she would have the time at such short notice (fingers crossed!) I dropped her a note to see if she would be free while I was there and was so pleased when she said she could meet me in Venice the next day!
Michela's post about our meeting is absolutely wonderful (and, in true Michela style, very amusing!) I would not try to write my own version so urge you to read hers here (if you haven't already!)
She forgot to mention the exquisite set of Venetian glasses she gave me as a gift! (I'm sorry I can't show you, pesky camera!) They are so beautiful and will be treasured!
I also was very lucky and was able to meet her lovely Mum, who saved my skin by bringing me some treasures from her stall!
I was unable to get the gifts I wanted for Victoria and, as if by magic, Michela's mum had exactly what I wanted!
I had such a lovely day, I can honestly say that Michela is a beautiful, beautiful person both inside and out!
We will be meeting again next summer (I promise to give you more notice sweetie!) and with any luck Victoria will be there too! I hope to be posting in the future about Michela's visit to London, you are welcome any time my friend!

Lots of Love

What a lovely photo of the two of you and so wonderful not only to be able to meet up with a bloggy friend but one so far away too.
I've not as yet been fortunate enough to meet up with any bloggy pals but I certainly hope to be able to one day.
((hugs))

That is so great you got to meet a blog friend, she sounds so totally lovely. It's the best little community in my opinion (bloggers).

Thank you so much for your great comments at DJ's I really appreciate it.

Have a lovely day,

And how lovely it was for me to speak to Michela on the phone! Can't wait to meet up next year!!

More importantly though I can't believe you're teasing me about my presents and making me wait for them!!!
