This was the prevailing feeling at the KC Bloggirls Luncheon. It didn’t seem far from the mark, as we are related through posting and comments for the past x-number of months. I’m not sure I could ever encapsulate in words what I observed and the marks even new people left on my heart.
I’m typically one of the women you will find on the outer perimeter of a large gathering; quietly observing and taking internal notes about people. This was no exception. I did get to interact with a few, some of which I had never even ‘found’ their home-blog, and some of which I had wanted to meet since this gathering was in the initial planning stages.
I want to take the time to link each one of these women. Though I did not get to personally interact with each one verbally, I did observe (eyes AND ears) the women and their interactions and their expressions and their incredible personality!
I’m going to “borrow” Shannon’s link research to post here along with my own observations!

This was truly an incredibly memorable experience and to top it all off I got to spend several hours in the car with my beloved sister as we traveled to and fro AND I got to visit one of my old Alma Mater’s in Pittsburg State University! Go Gorillas! Even as I realized it had been over 20 years since I was there a bit of my youth returned while remembering.
Thanks again to all who made this lunch happen! To new friends and future get togethers!
