A Day in the Life...ActiveRain Members ROCK!


Well, this post is definitely 24 hours late - if not more! I had the great fortune to be invited to a gathering of some of my Atlanta friends for their meet-up that Lynn B. Friedman was hosting. Most of the older members (and I don't mean 'age' either - just members from 2006 - 2008!) know that when you say meet-up, if at all possible, I'm there

Sally & David Hansen

I've met so many members over the years and some of them were going to be at the AR meet-up in Atlanta, as were other members I had never met over the years. So, I was excited to see them all.

 

 

I was thrilled to also get to meet my Wisconsin AR buddy, Sally Hanson & her hubby, David as they were going to be in Atlanta for a personal meeting (Sally K. & David L. Hanson ). After many conversations with Sally, I knew she was going to be one of those, 'WYSIWYG' AR members. Well, I'm here to tell you, she's all that and MORE! I have to tell you though, she's pint-sized and full of punch! Okay, she's about a foot shorter than I am so, we have been being called Mutt & Jeff, as I have with many of my friends who are much shorter than I! LOL

Sally & me

 

Seriosly, Sally & David are the most delightful, generous couple you will ever meet. I had the priviledge of spending Friday evening with them and to dine out, Cajun-style, in Atlanta. We had wonderful conversation and finally realized we had to go to bed so we could get up the following morning to meet up with the Atlanta peeps.

 

It was such a treat seeing Lynn B. FriedmanTammy Lankford, Thom Abbott and my 'ringing and singing' agent, Tim Maitski! Tammy's husband, Don, joined her and we also got to meet Michelle FrancisJenna Dixon and @Rodney Mason. We had such a great meet-up and I truly believe we could have all stayed until the next day! Conversation was as though we had all been friends forever...and we have been. 

 

ActiveRain Meet-Up 2018 ATLANTA

 

There's just no place like ActiveRain - we've never met, yet we felt we'd known one another for years. We all expected to see something purple from Sally, something homemade and amazing from Tammy and laugh until our cheeks hurt, listening to Thom!

 

Lynn did a fabulous job selecting the restaurant and directing everyone to the right location and the restaurant couldn't have been better either! They catered to us like we were royalty and the food was fantastic.

 

If you hear of an AR meet-up in your area, take the time to meet your peers - there are so many benefits to doing so and so much to share. I assure you, you'll love the experience and like me, won't want to leave!!

Debe Maxwell, CRS so wonderful to meet you and all the others at the meet up! I am always so excited to get face to face with a fellow tall girl...LOL! 

Thank you so much for all of the ymmy treats and the mug, I have eaten all the chocolate because that's my jam but I am saving the peppermints for the horses.

I hope we can get together again soon, next time I drive to West Virginia, we'll have lunch in Charlotte.

Debe Maxwell, CRS Thanks for sharing. 

What an awesome group MeetUp!! Would love to have joined you all. So much fun learning about each other when meeting in person. Did not realize Sally K. & David L. Hanson was petite...guess...some of the greatest things come in tiny packages.

Oh, Jenna Dixon, it was my pleasure to get to meet YOU! I'm so glad you were able to make it and YES, you'd better stop by when you head up to WV!

Glad you enjoyed the chocolate and hopefully the horses will enjoy the peppermints too!

I guess I'm late to the party. Didn't read about this meet-up until the other day when I spoke to Sally and she told me about all the fun she had. Say hi to Lynn if you meet or speak to her again soon. The photos say it all...
