Since I began blogging in 2010, I have made some very special friends in the blogosphere. And I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person several of those bloggers.
Last week, I added another one to that list: a very special one.
Beth Ann is the author of the blog “It’s Just Life“. Through her “Comments For A Cause”, she has a wonderful way of using her blog to give back to worthwhile charitable organizations. Each month, Beth Ann chooses a charity that’s special to her. At the end of the month, she and her husband, Chris, donate 50-cents to that charity for each comment left on her blog.
You may recall that a few months ago, she chose The Corolla Wild Horse Fund as her charity after reading about “my” wild horses on my blog. You know how much that meant to me.
Last week, Beth Ann and Chris visited the Corolla area of the Outer Banks. And, yes, the four of us met in person. Although they had taken an “official” horse tour earlier during their visit, Motor Man and I invited them to ride on the beach with us. We were happy to see so many horses and to take them to parts of the beach their other tour didn’t cover.
She and I were thrilled to see two of the new babies born so far this season.
After the tour, the four of us enjoyed a leisurely lunch. The conversation and laughter never stopped.
Beth Ann brought me a sweet little gift bag with items from the town of Brevard, NC, where they’ve lived for several years. Apparently white squirrels are very prevalent in Brevard: who knew?
Beth Ann has a huge collection of tea pots, and since it was her birthday week, I thought a tea pot would make a nice gift. I brought her one from the Bacon’s Castle gift shop. And of course, a calendar of some of my wild horse pictures.
Motor Man and I so enjoyed our time spent with Beth Ann and Chris. On our way home, we agreed that, if we all lived in the same town, the four of us would probably be good friends.
We look forward to visiting their area in the future, so they can show us around their town. Maybe we’ll get to see those white squirrels.
