Here are the memories of yesterday I'll always treasure...
When Michele and I sat down to dinner, she looked around the table and asked, "Did you ever think it would turn into this?"
I had never asked myself that question. But the answer is no, I never thought many so people would be reading Philofaxy, let alone getting together for such a joyful meeting!
I'll never forget Kanalt's weeks of preparation, research, and thousands of email exchanges that made this day possible...Michele's waiting outside of Sam Flax for me even as rain threatened so I'd be sure to find my way...Karensa's brand-new Malden...Dasha's well-loved pocket slimline...Kanalt's Happiness Book...Jordan's beautiful crocheted pen case...Mimi's super-perfect handwriting in her commonplace book...Colie's running ahead to Le Pain Quotidien to stake out the big communal table for us.
I feel as if I've known each of you for years, even though we had such a short time to spend together. We came together over a shared love of Filofaxes, but the real connection was in the heart.
