As we close 2016, we decided to take a moment to appreciate the positive experiences this year has offered us. As three professional women, with families, we balance work, busy schedules, and taking time to go out and experience all that the Outlander fandom has to offer. We have loved our time going to Outlander events, as there is no better way to get through Droughtlander than being with others who have your same addiction.

It’s every Outlander fan’s dream to meet the handsome Sam Heughan and when we heard our San Diegan friend had met him, we just squeed! Here is the story of a regular gal, like you and us, spending time with Sam.

I read Outlander and A Dragonfly in Amber during my first droughtlander. Continue reading A Fan’s Experience Meeting Sam Heughan
