The Holidays are over. Things are starting to settle down and we all seem to have a bit more free time because of it.

So, I thought it would be fun to set up a meeting for any and all bloggers that would like to get together.

I've noticed several bloggers live pretty close to me and I think it would be a blast to all get together and have lunch and spend the day together.

Even though I'm in Orange County, I think it would be fun to meet in LA at The Farmers Market. We could have a bite to eat (there is something for everyone there) and then do a little shopping at the Farmers Market and/or Grove.

Who knows, there could be some life long friendships made. I figured the worst that could happen is we at least can put a face to the blog and if we don't like each other (which I know would never happen) then we never have to meet again.

How about it? If this sounds like fun to you and you would be interested in meeting up, leave a message and let me know. If the location is bad, let me know where you would rather go.

Then I'll set up a date and we will all have a great time!

I cannot wait to see this film. I read everything I can get on Englands Royalty and just finished reading "We Two" three times. It's about Queen Victoria..and her family. I watch ever film I can find as this one really interests me and your review makes me even more excited to see it. Colon is one of my favorites..and has been for some time now.

This fall I went to a blogger brunch at the home of a fellow blogger and there were 15 of us there. It was so much fun to put a name with a face. I have also met 2 other blogger friends and hope to meet many more. You will love it, Joanne! Wish I was closer. I have never been to California! Love & blessings from NC!

Wow - I WISH I lived close by! It sounds great! Thanks for your sweet comment on my page, but I didn't grow those. I took the photo in a greenhouse I visited.
I stopped by your cake page too - oh WOW! are you one talented lady! Beautiful beautiful work.

I'd be interested in the meet up, but have to say I'm not crazy about the drive to LA! Maybe meet for a Sunday brunch somewhere in the OC? Saturday mornings are pretty sacred for me--gotta go to those yard sales!

Nancy said...

Bummer, I am in AZ. Next time you are in the Phoenix area be sure to let me know and I would love to meet up for lunch, coffee, chocolate...whatever! Have fun!
XO Nancy

I'd love to meet up but hoping we can do it on a weekend as I don't want to deal with the L.A. or O.C. traffic. It's horrible! lol!
I'm up for a Saturday or Sunday, just let me know well in advance.
Have a great day!

Blessings from Cindy said...

Wow, that makes me wish I lived closer! Sounds like a great time to me!! Please tell us all about it so we can live vicariously thru you!!

Hi Joanne, I would love to attend, this sounds like so much fun, but unfortunately, I am on the other side of the country and I just can't make it! Great idea though, and I will be looking forward to the story and pictures when this does happen! I am having a giveaway, come on over and join in the fun!

Quiltpiecer said...

Wow, came by way of Queen of Fifty Cents ... I am a faithful follower ... and live in Riverside County. Would be interested in meeting other So Cal bloggers! But as with The Queen, Saturday mornings are sacred for saling, and L.A. is a l-o-n-g drive. I agree a Sunday brunch in OC sounds like a plan.

I wish I was visiting the west coast so I could join you Joanne! I had fun visiting the LA Farmers Market last year and I wish I had time then to eat something there.
