A Cali Visit!

I love when 'fake friends' become REAL friends! You know, blog/social media friends you've never officially met in person (in real life).

Isn't she gorgeous?
I got to meet Cindy Saturday for coffee and breakfast, and I am ridiculously still so excited about it. Did you know she's a real person?! Not just a picture on Instagram or on a blog, but a real, live person that I now know!

Breakfast of Champions

I loved hanging out with Cindy, as I'm told most people do. I loved that she was nervous about meeting me like I was about her. I loved that she was up-front about not wanting me to force-feed her grits. I loved that we both decided awkward silences would be okay and then there were none. I loved that we had some extra things in common we didn't know about. I love that she stalked my blog before we met just like I stalked hers.

I love that she mentioned getting coffee later this week if it works out. I love when Cali friends venture into the unknown territory of the South and come out enjoying it. I love that Cindy liked our local coffee shop as much as I do. I loved getting to meet her friend, Kimberly, who was super sweet and kind.

I love that Cindy prayed over our food so I got to hear even more of her heart for Jesus. I love that she ordered us pumpkin donuts to share. I love that she was interested in seeing our main campus building since Hope (her church) is praying for a building of their very own. I love that she was excited I brought her pumpkin cupcakes and that she even liked them. Haha!

Basically I just had a blast and enjoyed very much getting to meet and know Cindy better. It's still amazing to me that I have such great friends I might have otherwise (without technology) never have even known existed! To meet in person is just icing on the proverbial cake! (This was especially a super cool blessing for me because CC and I tried to visit California over the summer and it didn't work out. To have a friend from there come all the way to where I am was just such a neat God thing!)

Still excited!
