It’s funny how people meet in the blog world…in real time it might be in a super market…a school event…a birthday party…a friend of a friend…well you get the picture…but in the blogosphere it’s a bit different…I met a very dear friend right here on the airwaves over an arrow…yes…an arrow! Going back to the Fall of 2011 a gorgeous blog came up on my radar and there I saw such an amazing kitchen…she needed an arrow to point towards the butlers pantry…so I thought it would be nice to do it for her…well I didn’t do it my son did because I had no idea either how that was done at the time! So instead of over a cup of coffee a friendship was born over an arrow! Another thing I knew in my heart when I met the dear Kari was that Thislewood Farm was going to propel beyond her imagination and that it has with her kind…talented…loving and creative touch! I knew she was going to be a star and guess what she is on her way in RECORD time…
