I don't wanna freak you out, but...

So, I was standing in line at Bread Alone, a great little bakery and cafe in Rhinebeck, NY, and a woman comes up to me and starts saying, "I don't wanna freak you out, but...." I figured she'd say something like, "you look just like someone I know" or "you totally just cut in front of me in line" or even "there's a giant dinosaur behind you." Instead, she said, "I don't wanna freak you out, but... are you Little Bird's mom?"

I know, right??!! I responded immediately, "ummm, you're freaking me out!!!"

Claudia works with the Chamber of Commerce in Rhinebeck. She'd reached out to me the last time I visited after reading the blog. After seeing that I'd be back in town, she wondered if she'd run into me on the streets- and she did! We had a great chat and giggled a bit about the unusual circumstances under which we met. Such a nice lady. Such a nice town!! Everyone there is friendly and happy. It's a great place to visit, so go. See Claudia and tell her I sent you!
