I meant Barbara Lopez through Twitter. We would have little conversations together via Twitter. I would retweet on of her post, she would comment on one of mine. I found if I had a question, Barbara was one of my friends that would answer my question. I decided I wanted to take this relationship from a virtual relationship to one in person.
Barbara and I decided to meet for lunch at EL PUERTO (a hole in the wall Mexican Restaurant) in Rancho Cordova.
I was excited to meet Barbara! We wind up having such a great visit! Two hours later we were saying good-bye but planning our next meeting.
Who said Twitter was a waste of time? I would have never meant Barbara aka @brightfarm if it hadn’t been for Twitter.
I am grateful for my new friend, Barbara!
