Remember this most amazing looking cupcake? And, trust me, it was as delicious as it was pretty. It was a treat from a friend from the infamous Georgetown Cupcake – a cupcake bakery featured on tv and not too far from my home and, yet, I have never been there! I know – why not?? But it took a sweet friend to come from all the way from South Carolina to stop by the bakery on her way home from a visit to DC in order for me to get a cupcake!! Now, how nice is that?? But – even better…this visit from a friend was a blog friend! Someone I “met” while blogging and then was able to meet in person – now that was the true sweet treat! Rose and her husband were in Washington, DC for several days (she has great photos on her blog! I never tire of pictures from the city!) and we were able to meet at Cracker Barrel on their way home. They stopped at Georgetown Cupcake – even got there 45 minutes early to be the first in line….yes, there is a line outside every day! – in order to take cupcakes home to her daughter and family! Yep, they are that sweet. Apparently a bus arrived at Cracker Barrel just before we did and the place was swamped and completely unprepared (which seems silly when you are located right on the interstate but, whatever) and our meal was nothing short of a comical mess…but we shared some good laughs and enjoyed each other’s company as if we had been old friends! I so enjoyed visiting. I have heard of others having the chance to meet their “blog friends” but really thought I might have the opportunity – but so glad I did. Just another reason to love blogging!! And the invitation is open and standing – if you are in..or near…the nation’s capital – please drop me line!! Rose, so glad to have met you and your sweetie…and, thanks again for the cupcake!!
