Thank-you Arizona Bloggers!!

I want to thank-you all from the bottom of my heart!!  Thank-you Marty and Sherry for planning this and being such fabulous hostesses!  Sherry got the ball rolling and I can't thank her enough for planning this sweet party for when I would be visiting.  Marty, your the hostess with the mostest!  Thank-you for all your hard work and planning, I love your  tassels and I hope you post about them soon. I need a refresher course. Thank-you Linda for picking me up , it was so great seeing you again after all these years!  Linda T. and I knew each other in high school through 4-H.  She found my blog by accident on the internet and boy was I amazed!  Thank-you Karen!!  I about dropped over in disbelief when I saw you standing next to me.  What a wonderful surprise and what a great day.  Karen drove from LA, a six hour drive ! She is truly a fabulous friend !   And thank-you to all the other lovely ladies who attended the luncheon, it was just a wonderful time.  I am leaving this morning and boy is it bittersweet.  I am always sad when I leave my son and dil because I know I may not see them again for quite awhile.  But now I have a whole new set of friends to visit when I come to Phoenix and that is truly wonderful.  I need to go pack my bags now, wake the hubby and go kiss the Son and  his wife good-bye.  I have never posted from a hotel lobby computer so no pics yet but I will when I get back to Wisconsin.  Thank-you to my brother Tom who drove up from Flagstaff yesterday.  It was great seeing you Tom and now you need to get to Wisconsin!   Oh and to my wonderful hubby who will be in a plane instead of watching the Packer/Viking game... thank-you honey! Go Packers!!   Hugs everyone,  Cindy


  1. Cyndi, you are such a delight, and what a thrill to meet you. I had the best time and am so glad that we all got to meet. It was such a thrill to meet Karen too and she really is a sweetie to drive over here for the lunch. I can't wait until you come back and we can all meet again. Have a safe trip home. Hugs, Marty

  2. Cindy, it was a pleasure meeting you. I had such a wonderful time meeting and visiting with everyone. Lunch was so good, I would love to do it all again. If I am ever in Wisconsin I would love to get together. Have a safe trip home, I won't say goodbye because I just know that we will all see each other again one day. Thankyou for everything, everyone, Char from someplace in thyme.

  3. GIRL!!!! Oh my gosh I had so much fun. It was hard to keep it a secret - but Mission Accomplished! My biggest fear was that you'd look at me like "Who are you?"
    I got your sweet phone message! That was a treat! Now you need to Email me your phone number!
    Hope Katie is feeling better when you get home. Poor thing.
    OK - GO PACKERS! That was just for Dan.
    Have a safe flight!
    Big hugs! Karen

  4. Sounds like you had a great time, Cindy...it has to be wonderful to meet fellow bloggers! And to spend time with your son and family...that is the best gift of all!

    God bless,

  5. It was so much fun to meet you too! I know the answer...you can become a snowbird...and have the best of Wisconsin and AZ!! Have a safe trip and I hope we can meet up again soon.

  6. Oh, isn't if FUN to meet other bloggers live and in person???? One of my trips to Eau Claire, you and I must meet!

  7. Sounds like you had a blast, Cindy!

  8. Cindy, I just posted about how we reconnected after 35 years and our time together at the AZ Bloggers luncheon. SOOO fun catching up with you Cindy! I am looking forward to your next visit.

  9. Have a safe trip my friend...aren't friends the best?! You are very special, so glad I've met you!
    Come say hi :D

  10. CIndy~~

    I saw the pictures on Marty's and Ceekay's blogs and I nearly fell over when I saw you!! How lucky you were to have your visit with your son coincide with the luncheon. It looked like such fun!! I hope you took a lot of pictures. I love looking at them! Marty listed who was who and I had to go back over them!! Do you think we will ever have a Midwest get together? Maybe we will just have to crash the closest ones! lol!!

    Have a safe trip home. Go Bears!! ;-)


  11. What a wonderful experience.It's the people in our lives that are truly our blessings.

  12. HI!!
    It was a plesure to meet you and I am so glad you got to meet your friend Karen!!! What a sweet surprise for both of you!!!! I do hope you make it out here often, soon I will have 2 empty bedrooms!!!! Have a safe trip home and don't freeze up there this winter!!!!! You must come again to our luncheon!!!!

  13. It really sounds as if you all had a wonderful time. I hope you got home safely. My daughter lives 1000 miles away...so, I'm very familiar with those goodbyes. It is so hard.


  14. Cindy... to think that my favorite apple orchard blog friend was only 7 hours away! It looks by all the pictures that you all had a ball! I am glad you were able to meet up with all the southwestern bloggers! What fun! The pictures of all of you were beautiful!! Hugs!

  15. It was such a great time! Hope to see you again soon.

  16. Cindy, what a wonderfully exciting trip you had. I can't imagine the blast it would be to actually meet your blogsisters. I think it might be dangerous to throw some of us in a room together! Heeeeheeheee! I am so happy for you and the timing that allowed you to do this.

    Have a great day and rest up. Thanks so much for allowing us to be a part of your excitement!

    God bless you sweet Cindy :o)

  17. Hi Cindy, You were one beautiful Mother of the Groom at the wedding! The dress was gorgeous and you were as well! :) Your son and his wife make a nice couple, too! Congrats on their first house....how exciting!

    Looks like ya'll had a wonderful trip to AZ! I saw the pics at Marty's yesterday and I was wishing I was an AZ blogger! Would have loved to be right there with ya'll. Blogging buddies are the best, aren't they? :) ~hugs, Rhonda

  18. Although I attended the luncheon, I didn't get a chance to meet everybody, but I do remember you. It was a lovely lunch and I do wish I could have had a chance to speak to eveyone there. Hope we have another get-together. Marty did a fantastic job!


I would love to hear from you. Come back and visit anytime. Warmest Wishes, Cindy
