Meeting Sanibel Friends

Since I started blogging I have had the opportunity to meet many people in person that I've "talked" to for years thru my blog.  The majority of them are folks who share my huge love of Sanibel Island.

Well last night I had the honor of meeting Care, her husband Eddy and two of their kids - Bethany and Logan.   They are in Chicago this weekend for Bethany's dance competition and we made plans months ago to go out for dinner while they were here.  

So even after getting no sleep last night, and driving all day, they were nice enough to still meet for dinner.  We had the best time and talked non stop for several hours, in between bites of thick crust pizza.  

Number one on Bethany's list of Chicago "must do's" was Chicago style pizza, so we decided on Giordano's.   She gave it 2 thumbs up!

Anyway, I think the best part of blogging is the friendships that I've formed because of it.  And when I think about it, these are all people I would never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise.

So thanks Care.  It was a great night and I had such a good time!  I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and get to see the Chicago river turned green for St. Patrick's Day.  Hey, next time we meet on Sanibel, ok?  And Cheri Bailey......  YOU are next!!!

  8. You are a good friend to take someone to Giordano's! That is the top thing I miss about living in Chicago. Rosati's deep dish is pretty amazing as well!

    1. Yes, Rosati's is good and so is Lou Malnati's. Yum.
