We had a jam-packed weekend with two events on Saturday and three on Sunday. But yesterday was the best day of all!
Yesterday I finally got to meet my friend, Andrea, in person! Here we are at the tip of Navy Pier:
Andrea and I have been "pen pals" for about a year. We have a lot in common besides our love of sewing and knitting. So I was pleased as punch when she and her husband decided to take a mini-vacation in Chicago before their big move out west.
We had a great time yesterday walking down the Pier, going up to the top of the Hancock building (OK, that was scary) and even getting in a little fabric shopping. Her husband was quite a trooper, waiting for us while we pawed through the silks at Vogue.
Today I'm catching up on some laundry while they take in a couple museums, then this evening the four of us will be getting together for dinner.
Have you ever finally met a person you've been corresponding with? I was so happy to finally meet Andrea in the flesh, but because we've been writing regularly for the last year, it feels like I've known her forever!
