I booked my plane tickets to head to the west coast to visit our very own Laurie and Lavada in September. I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with Laurie at RWA in NYC a few years ago and am looking forward to getting to meet Lavada in person. I just know I’m going to adore her as much as I do Laurie. It’s always cool to meet people in person that you know online. It’s even better when you find they are as real and personable in the flesh as they are online and that you “get” each other. Having romance writing, reading and love of family and friends in common is already a great way to start a relationship, right?
The only downside to the trip? The flight times were awful. I could either get up before dawn or fly all night. UGH. I picked the up at dawn since I will have to travel for work on the Monday after I get back and knew I would need to sleep in a bed. Why, oh why, does the travel industry want to punish people?
I’m adding a link to a video to See You in September even though most of the lyrics don’t match since they are about lovers, but I adore the lyrics about counting the hours and the minutes. 🙂
Have you ever met someone you’ve bonded with online? How did it go? Were they what you expected?
