Debbie, Davine, and Daylesford
As I'd mentioned in my previous post I've reconnected with a wonderful lady whom I met in Canada, Debbie, and she is as magnificent of an individual as I remember her to be. I'm thoroughly enjoying spending time with her. Yesterday she told me she had a surprise for me, so off we go on a bit of a trip. We drove for about an hour through some amazingly beautiful countryside and arrived in a town called Daylesford; now I'd thought I knew that name but I wasn't sure from where. We pulled up to this charming house and Debbie mentioned that she was going to go and ask for directions, she wasn't sure where we were but wanted to show me something.
As we pulled up a lady walked out from a beautiful garden of flowers, it sure looked like Davine. Now Davine and I met through blogger... wow, it has to be a few years ago now. We've shared comments on our blogs, emailed one another, sent each other things; I remember mailing her a cowboy Santa Clause, she made me a beautiful bracelet which I received shortly before I left Canada and I have it here with me... so I looked at this lady at the end of the drive, and sure enough it was Davine! I quickly got out of the car and went and gave Davine a huge hug, I felt our spirits connect and the three of us spent the afternoon together.

We went out to a quaint little restaurant for lunch...
And naturally we, Davine and myself, had to have our photo taken...
It was priceless what Davine said to me when we first met, she said: "It's Darlene, it's really Darlene"... yes Davine, it's really me and I loved every minute we spent together yesterday. It was just like reconnecting with a long lost friend! Cheers, have a ton of fun at the b'day party. I'll be looking forward to seeing photos! :-)
And thank you Debbie for the wonderful day!
