I am one the hosts of the Lindsay Girly Book Club. Lindsay is a smaller town and many of our members who attend the meetings are good friends of mine who I socialize with and have known for a long time. We also have some ladies who are new to our area and it has been a pleasure to get to know them. At November’s meeting, two new members came. I knew both of the ladies but had not seen them in many, many years which is surprising considering the size of our community. We acknowledged how great it was to see each other once again.
The next evening, along with some friends, I drove about 45 minutes to another town to attend an information presentation promoting a guided tour travel company. I was very surprised to see one of those ladies, Yvonne, there as well. She was on her own and very interested in traveling, particularly to Italy. I didn’t think much of it that evening as I was there considering a trip to France.
The next morning I thought about how I had Italy on my ‘trip wish list’. I looked at the brochures I had picked up and found a trip that went to the places I wanted to visit. I messaged Yvonne and this was the same trip she was considering. So, we are booked! This all took place in less than 48 hours after the GBC meeting.
This is a bit of twist on GBC’s usual stories that are about new friendships being made. I am delighted to be reacquainted with Yvonne and very excited about our upcoming trip!
