Me=Lucky Girl

Today (, today) I consider myself (...myself, myself) the luckiest girl in the world.

I have the best friends ever! Take a little stroll over to Sanna's blog to peek at the totally awesome new purse that she made for me. I mentioned that I liked some fabric that she used on a baby dress and that it would make a really cute purse and what does she do? Only plops right down and sews me a purse, that's what! What a super cool friend she is!

Did I mention that Sanna lives in Germany? And that we've been friends for four years but we've never met in person? We're both Seppies--the name we assigned ourselves because we're friends/fans of author Susan Elizabeth Phillips--the only author for whom I would show up at a book signing wearing a princess costume. Click here and scroll down to see me with my friend and fellow Seppie, Bev, who was wearing a headless beaver costume. You'd have to read Natural Born Charmer to understand why. I met Sanna and many of my good buddies on SEP's message board. We've bonded over the years even though many of us have never met face to face.

We've supported each other through infertility, pregnancy, death of family members, illness, surgery, financial troubles, and job searches. We've provided assistance with boyfriend issues, which jeans fit best, under-eye concealer, how to buy a bra, fashion advice (that's mostly from Lanie!), TV shows and movies, makeup debates (the Bare Essentials camp is very strong over there), computer problems, cleaning tips, diet and exercise plans, how to deal with rude coworkers, baby food problems, and lots of book discussions.

They're a wonderful group of ladies and I'm blessed to have them in my life. But making me a purse and posting it overseas? That's just above and beyond the call of friendship. I'm moved beyond belief.

Oh, and it TOTALLY MATCHES my new skirt! Yay!

Duh, SEPPIES rock! I can't believe I've been there forever as in since there was only one page of posts. Nuts! I've met a bunch of people in passing at conventions, but I really only got to sit down with Nelchens last summer. The others I've met from the board I met through other bulletin boards.

I love the total mix of people. I can find someone for almost any question or comment or opinion. Everybody may not agree with me, but there's at least one person.

Hurray for SEPPIES! And the purse is totally cute.

Guess what...I'll be wearing the matching if you go to that Seppies thing, we can have some sort of dance number where you wear the purse and I wear the top! :)

Oh, super cute bag. Very nice for summer.

I like the diversity of the SEP board, it's fun and nice (although sometimes I'm itching to say something mean LOL - I'm not nice LOL).
