Table Talk Live: Chris, Ejourneys and Jane (Plus Carees!)

I’m in South Florida this weekend. Chris (@thpurplejacket) invited me for a visit and I had a credit with Southwest Airlines so how could I say “No” to a reprieve from an endless Chicago winter? (Interestingly enough, I had a credit on Southwest because of my trip last year to see @trish and @kreisler.)

I arrived on Thursday and had a wonderful evening with Chris and his partner, The Little One. On Friday, Chris and I hit the road to meet Jane (@jbones1961) and @ejourneys and their carees, Nicole and Mary, for a picnic lunch. We spent three hours together at Wekiwa Springs State Park and, honestly, the three hours just flew by. It was wonderful to connect and share in person.

After our lunch, I filmed a video for you which ejourneys appropriately named “Picnic Table Talk Live.” I hope watching makes you feel like you were with us, too.

Be sure to join your state group (search in our group directory to find your state), so we can make these kinds of connections happen in your community.

    Denise, You took your winter coat to S. Florida? It was good to see everyone sitting around a table instead of in squares at the bottom of a screen. Excellent video

    LOVED meeting and being with you all! This was an amazing treat. Thanks so much, @Denise, @thpurplejacket, @jbones1961 and Nicole!

    Felt great to stretch beyond that square, @kreisler! :D

    Nice seeing everyone but I have to comment,

    five straight minutes and NO ONE could pry the camera away from @Denise and point it back at her?!? :-)
