With excitement I stepped inside
Grabbed my name card and surveyed the scene
Quietly I made my way to stand by her side
My arms twitching, like someone who has just turned sixteen
Jonelle – my blogger pal, how lovely to finally have met you gal!
I chatted away, with many women that day
Matching the face to the blog
An impossible task I say!
Then with radiance and high-heeled height
She made her way through the door;
Shelley, you sent butterflies a flutter in my belly
What an absolute delight the minute I had you in my sight!
Soon Eat on Main became abuzz with laughter and love
I retreated to a corner to appraise and admire
The attention to detail reflecting our host
Cindy, 2 kids, 3 dogs and one old house,
Diligently planned with the support of her spouse
My eyes glued on the door, while listening to a joke
That almost had me reeling on the floor
Finally she arrived, my other tandem blogging partner
Overjoyed and blessed, I had goosebumps meeting Celeste
Tick-tock I watched the clock
Listening to Sam, “time is valuable, know your worth”
This hit right home, my time is valuable I always say
Then came Ruan, “be consistent”
A definite challenge for me
As I am a full time worker bee, student and mommy
I still had so many people too meet and greet!
But thanks to BrandRocket I took some of you home in my pocket!
Heavy goodie bag and wine in hand, an afternoon of inspiration
I stepped out into the buzzing streets of Observatory
Tweeting away #ctmeetup as if it it was my Blogger graduation
. . . and here is what it was like to meet my Tandem Blogging partners for the first time in person!
It was unusual to step into a room filled with bloggers on Saturday and not have a blog layout to match the blogger to the blog! You can follow CTMeetup Community for updated info on the next event.

Reading this post I could sense your excitement! Certainly sounds like you had a fab time 🙂
Wish we had more time to mingle, but there will be another one, hopefully this year still.
Still confused about the blog tag initiative. I’ll get around to figuring it out eventually 🙂
Can’t wait till we meet again!!!
