Zoanna, my Blog Buddy and Sister in the Lord!

When I first began this blog, I earnestly prayed for a blog buddy. I desired a kindred spirit and a sister in the Lord.
Enter Zoanna!
I've been blessed by her friendship and fellowship through our blogs. She lived in Kansas for awhile in childhood and recently returned to Kansas to visit her friend, Barb. Since she would be close to my home, we arranged a meeting! I was excited... and nervous! What if she doesn't like me in person? What if we don't know what to talk about?
She brought me a cute little "cow wisdom" book and here is my favorite quote for this application:
"Butter comes from churning milk;
butterflies come from churning stomachs!"
I admit to a churning stomach, but our meeting was udderly satisfying to me!
I rejoice!
Thank you for making our meeting a priority, Zoanna, dear sister in Christ!

It was a gorgeous Kansas Day!
We drove up to Coronado Heights (another Lindsborg highlight). The wind was brisk, but exhilarating and to look out over the Smoky Valley is always a delight!

Aww, what a delight to me! That you would invite me out with Barb and put out the smorgasbord of Swedish cultural foods and take us on a tour of Lindsborg. Over the top good day!
You're udderly hilarious, Laurie. It was so cool being in your kitchen--and kudoes to Mike and Christine for the good pictures! You are a blessing. Hope that was not our one-and-only meeting on this earth!

I'll post soon. I'm starting at the end and working backwards, I think.
