I got to spend time with the closet thing I have to a twin yesterday morning and had a blast.

As I mentioned on Friday, Elizabeth Boyle was in town for the Celebrate Romance conference. The morning started off badly when I realized halfway to the Benson Hotel in downtown Portland I'd forgotten my cellphone. (It was recharging.) I was supposed to call or text Elizabeth when I arrived. Luckily, the Benson concierge, Michael, allowed me to use his phone. When she didn't answer, I called hubby who phoned her on my cellphone. Contact was finally made!

We walked down the street to Peet's Tea and Coffee for a quick visit. We laughed. We cried. We gave advice. We listened.

Of course, "quick" turned into two plus hours once we started talking. Oops. We couldn't believe we'd been chatting that long especially because we both had places to be! The truth is we probably could have spent hours talking and not even realized it!

We raced back to the hotel and my minivan. I wasn't late. i actually beat my family to where we were supposed to be at 12:45. I just hope Elizabeth made it to where she had to be, too, though I know she was late!

Still no regrets. It was wonderful to spend time with someone who is just, well, a lot like me. Being with her sure filled my well!

Do you have a twin out there? If so, who is it?
