I have a card and a CRAZY story for you. First off, here is my card...
I used A Sweet Life From PTI and then the adorable sentiment and banner from Simon Says Stamps. I love these flowers so much and the banner is a must have for your crafting stash! The sentiment and the font are SO fun too! I added some pearls to the Linen IP'd background and I'm thinking this would be a fun wedding card. Don't you?
OK, so on to the CRAZY story! So taking you back at least 2 ish years, I met the sweet Jinny out there in blog land. Of course, what made us click at first was probably the fact that we both live in Kansas. She is about 3 hours or so away, but you know.....us Kansas girls stick together!
About a year ago, Amy and I took a trip to KC and we got to meet up with Jinny and Lynn. Jinny made us an amazing meal and we got to meet her family and visit for awhile. Our next stop....Cheesecake Factory...yum!!
So over all this time we have kept in touch with the occasional text or email. I was so excited to see on her blog this last week that she was headed my direction for a wedding. I told her if she had time, maybe we could quickly meet up. She texted on Saturday and let me know her schedule, so I invited her family out for a short visit on their way out of town.
So here we are sitting in my craft room...with that most adorable little one of hers....
So we are talking about traveling and I said that I used to live in KC and I would travel home every weekend to Mac and she said....well I was born in Mac....and I said really? I lived in Mac when I was little too! I told her my parents went to College there. She said her parents went to school there too and that she had family still there that were in the construction business. I said...well I used to work at a lumber yard in High School so I know a lot of the construction guys. She said the company name and I said "Luke?" Then she said...."Luke is my cousin"....then I said...."Rod is your uncle?!!" By this point I am slightly hyperventilating and I said well who is your dad? Then she says her dads name and I got goose bumps. I was staring at her trying not to freak out and I told her my parents name and then she started freaking out. The point to all this craziness as I am trying to play it out to you as it happened....our parents went to college together and were friends when we were little. I remember them coming to Colorado when we were little, I remember stopping at their house and playing in their basement. I remember getting Christmas card from them. OMG! Jinny and I played together as kids! WHAT? I met her on the internet. But not really...cuz I met her probably 30 + years ago!
I am not a fan of my picture being taken...but here we are....me in my wind blown state....I probably had leaves in my hair too...who knows!
I am still in shock of this crazy story! And so excited that she stopped by yesterday or we would have never known that we actually already knew each other! ;)
Hope you are all having a great Monday!
