"Big Event" - Pat Travers, 1990
There was a big event at lunchtime today. I had the very first in-person meeting with a blogger friend!
Now I was supposed to meet Kathy - What Do I Know? - for lunch in Oxford quite some time ago. But something came up for me at the last minute, and I had to cancel. I was really disappointed...but hopefully there will be another chance.
But today, I had the chance to meet Kris - A Quick Succession of Busy Nothings - for lunch in Oxford! And she's as lovely in person as she appears on her blog!
Kris and her husband Miles moved from Utah to Oxfordshire last December. Miles had gotten his dream job with the Williams F1 team. Kris found Lord Celery linked on another American expat's blog, and left me a comment here even before they actually got to the UK. And I've been following her blog ever since. It's been so much fun to read about their experiences settling in here. It's a brave thing to d0 - I certainly know all about that - and they seem to be getting along very well.
Kris has had a job in Oxford for awhile now. Unlike Miles, though, hers hasn't been her dream job. But that has changed. She's going to be working for an interior design firm near London beginning next Monday. So that's why I wanted to try to meet her while we were both working in Oxford.
We had a really good time at lunch. Here's Kris, before we both headed back to our respective offices...

Thanks, Kris, for taking the time today to be my first blogger-meeting! And a note to Kris' family - you can see how well she is doing!
Now I'm wondering which of my other blogger friends I'll get to meet next!
