Serendipity - I met fellow Active Rainer Sandy Fenton at Haiku in White Plains NY

By
Home Builder with The Flooring Girl

In simplest terms, Serendipity means a fortunate accident. And, that's exactly what happened to me on Wednesday night in White Plains at Haiku.  I went to a Keller Williams happy hour and used my free drink ticket.  And, the person next to me was none other than Sandy Fenton from Active Rain and Mt Kisco NY.  She recognized me right away even though my hair was in a ponytail bun.

It was so great meeting her.  She is such a sweet geniune person - just like she seems in her blog.  She always stuck out in my mind on Active Rain because she is in Mt Kisco which is right next to my home town of Chappaqua, so I was always in Mt Kisco, and my how much it's grown since I was a kid.

We of course bonded about Active Rain, so that was a lot of fun and it made the evening that much more special.  I hope to see her at the next Keller Williams event.

How cool is that?  I am afraid I wouldn't recognize a Rainer if I ran into one locally.  I'm not that observant.  I do always think people look familiar though, so I guess there is hope for me.

Valerie - Yes, it was doubly cool.

Debra - yes, very fun.  We are actually nationally preferred flooring company for KW.

Jay - Haiku is simply the name of the restaurant.  Now, that you mention it, I'm not sure what it translates to.

James - Yes, they are.  It's raining Rainers.

Debbie!  I wrote you a haiku in my response!  It has the 5 syllable, 7 syllable, 5 syllable format!  I thought it was very clever!

Hey Debbie!

It was just as great to meet you too - I just knew you were probably going to be there and I was looking for you!  I also have to say that you are probably even sweeter and more genuine than I could possibly be.  ;-)

Thanks so much for the incredibly sweet post and I am looking forward to a long and fruitful relationship.  XOX

I am also very excited that you are one of our preferred vendors.  :-)
