Yes, that is who you think it is! It is Jen from Conversion Diary!!!
She had a layover here in town, and we got together for a blogger meet-up at the airport (there aren't many people I'd get up early for, but Jen is one of them). I think we chatted for over two hours over breakfast, but it seemed like ten minutes! She is every bit as wonderful as you'd think, not to mention that she is six feet tall and drop-dead gorgeous. (I am grateful that she allowed us to sit for the photo, ha ha!)
I could have talked to her for several more hours. It was like meeting an old friend, but for the first time.
I LOVE HER!!!
I was excited to learn that Jen is the cover story for the current Envoy Magazine. Listen up, people: You must read this story! I read the article after we parted, and I learned so much that I hadn't known about her journey from "cradle atheist" to devout Catholic. So compelling, and now I have a million more questions to ask her. I cannot wait for her book, which is in the final stages of editing.
The meeting came and went too quickly, but I'm thinking this won't be the last time we connect. :)
Life is good, oh yes it is!
(Can you tell that I had a good morning?)
