Back Home From Our Holiday

We arrived back home from our holiday to Vegas late last night. Today was spent doing laundry, grocery shopping and just enjoying being in our own space.

The highlight of the trip was getting to meet Ginger from Enchanting Cottage. It was like meeting a long lost sister. Harvey was a bit worried that I would not recognize her, but for some reason when this lovely lady and her husband walked by I stopped dead and said "Ginger" and she said "Jackie" and we were suddenly hugging each other.

We talked all through breakfast about blogging and the Frugal Living forum where we first met and when the time came to leave, I was so sorry to see her and Wayne leave. My husband is very quiet and the two men got along very well. I sure wish we could have spent more time together, but who knows perhaps some day we will meet again.

Here is a picture of the two of us together in front of some of the flowers in the conservatory. We even have the same hair cut and the same colour hair!

This is a picture of Ginger and her husband Wayne. You can see in their eyes how much they care about each other.
Wayne gave us lots of sight seeing ideas and after we said good bye we followed up on as many as we possibly could.
I do hope that they both had a safe journey to visit with Charlotte. I said many prayers for a safe journey for them.
I will share photo's and stories of our trip in my next post. I just had to share my meeting with someone who I wish I lived closer to. I think that I would be spending a great deal of time with Ginger if we lived closer together.
Thank you so much Ginger for travelling so far to meet me, it meant so very much to me.
Have a wonderful evening everyone. I am off to visit you all.
God bless.
