Today was the day!!
We've been looking forward to it for weeks!
Today we got to meet....
Rebecca and Samantha from The Bates Motel!!
Rebecca and I hugged when we first saw each other.
She said it seemed like we had been friends for a couple of years.
I completely agree! Blogging builds relationships, even across the miles.
They are visiting family here in Seattle, all the way from Virginia.
We met at a local restaurant for pancakes and omletes.
Samantha had her favorite - peanut butter and jelly.
Beth had her favorite - an omlete with ham.
We settled into the seats at the restaurant and began talking.
Occupations. School. Ancestors.
Samantha began to open up.
She was talking a little bit and laughing.
I found myself just staring at her.
She's so beautiful. And so smart!
She was trying to get Beth to talk and open up.
Beth never did. Not really.
No laughing. No snorting. :(
An hour later it was time to say goodbye.
Samantha sat in the booth and said she wanted Beth.
I had to force Beth to go over to her.
That's just how Beth is.
But Beth did go to her.
Samantha grabbed her hand.
We stopped just inside the doors to take some pictures.
Oh my gosh they were so cute.
They warmed up to each other and at that point, didn't want to leave!
Such a great afternoon!!
I can't stop thinking about them.
Thank you Rebecca for being willing to drive the hour to get here!
I miss you already!!
Rebecca, Samantha, Beth, Me.
