These Are The People In Your Neighbourhood
Saturday, I got to meet a little slice of the OC. It was very, very cool. I wish Olivia had been able to come along, but she decided she'd rather go to a birthday party. Next time....
Everyone was fantastic. It was incredible to meet these people, knowing it was for the first time, and yet feel like they were old friends. I didn't have one twinge of nervousness and usually I a mess before meeting someone new. A group of new people usually has my stomach in knots and my knees knocking. This was like sliding into a comfy cardigan.
Shannon's kids are adorable and would run me ragged. Brandon was a gap-toothed cutie with an eye for the ladeeeees. Her other two are little blonde bundles of energy. And Shannon and her husband are lovely people.
Nicole is funky and funny and had a cool hat that fascinated Isobel. In fact, Isobel was pretty taken with Nicole, period. Toddled off with her without so much as a backwards glance.
Lyrecha is slender, tall and blonde and was a great conversationalist - I really enjoyed talking with her. And her engagement ring is stunning.
Kerri. Man, Kerri is just too cute. Blonde, cute, tiny, gorgeous teeth, beaming grin, funny as all hell and genuinely nice. It would be very hard not to like Kerri.
I had a great time meeting everyone. I really hope we can do it again, soon.
