I know it's a little cray to meet strangers at a coffee shop in some town you've never been to, but I'm kind of a pro at this sort of thing and I just had a feeling meeting Val and her sister Vanessa was going to be a good thing. And boy was I right! They were beyond sweet. Like I wanted to put them both in my pocket and take them back home with me to Virginia.
They loaded us in their car and took us shopping, out to lunch at Vitex Barbecue, gave us a tour ALL over town. We met Clint, the wood maker, from the show. We saw his house next to his shop that was on season one. We went to Joanna's shop, The Magnolia Market, and the Silo project they are working on. They even drove us by Chip and Joanna's house! Now that's stalking on a whole new level!!
We had a ball and left feeling blessed to our toes. What amazes me and still does after years of blogging and Instagram is the immediate connection you can have with complete strangers. I had no idea who Val and Vanessa were. I didn't follow them on IG or know them at all and yet we bonded. There really are no strangers anymore. The world over you can travel and because of social media we can all be friends! Just love it!!!
