It’s a small world!
My friend Karen invited me to go to a sale one of her friends was having at a neighboring clubhouse, literally around the corner. Turns out two bloggers were the ones putting on the sale. They were getting rid of some stuff, wanting to simplify and declutter their homes. “It’s better than a yard sale, but it’s not as new as retail” is how one of the sellers described the sale.
When we arrived, the line was out the door. The clubhouse was so packed, you could barely move. Everyone had their arms full of great stuff. And the best part? A portion of the proceeds are going towards Compassion International, a non Profit Christian child advocacy ministry. How Awesome!
Another nice surprise was meeting the author of Grace for the Good Girl by Emily P. Freeman, whose sister happens to be The Nester. Emily was absolutely lovely and I walked away with her book she so graciously autographed for me.
It IS a small world. You just never know who you will meet. Bloggers/people you admire, who are out there, somewhere in the world, may turn out to be your neighbor! 😉
