[dropcap style=”color: #9b9b9b;”]A[/dropcap] visitor from the United States arrived this week. We call her Sy, and she’s the daughter of my friend Stacey, who I’ve mentioned more than a few times here on the blog. I’ve known Stacey for years, but what’s really crazy is that this month marks the third anniversary of when I first met her in person.
It was at one of her book-signings in 2012. A few years before that, we connected via Facebook through our mutual friend, Jason, who is also a writer and who knows Stacey through his writing/creative people circles. Stacey and I both live in the D.C. metropolitan area, she is the ranking blogger over at Army of Ermas, and Jason thought we’d get along pretty well. And he was right.
Stacey and her family are such amazing people, and we ended up spending a lot of time together. My girls just ADORED all five of Stacey’s daughters. We spent weekends, holidays, and birthdays together, and it always felt like visiting family. So, that’s why we’re so excited to be hosting Sy and introducing her to Europe.
We really can’t wait, though, to get the WHOLE FAMILY over here.
But in the meantime, for this week’s Flashback Friday, a jump back to 2012 when it really all began. You can read it HERE.
