Kelsie and I have been blog friends for what feels like ten years. This girl makes time machines and loves E.E. Cummings--I just knew we were kindred spirits as soon as I pored over her blog a couple of years ago. After a few failed attempts, we finally met up for lunch at Guru's this weekend. And I really can't say enough about her. We spent a long lunch talking about blogging, the men in and out of our lives, and Boston. She seriously is just as wonderful and passionate (and beautiful!) as she is on her blog--and I feel so grateful that we are real life friends now.
Ohhh but that's not all. As we left lunch, Kelsie and I were asked to be in a small commercial--we'll be famous soon probably maybe. And then we turned around to see another blog friend, Brittany, heading to lunch with her husband! Guys, I am not making this up. After lots of ohmygoshing and hugging and cameras, Kelsie and I completely intruded and joined Brittany and Jacob on their lunch date. Brittany has the most adorable closet, home, and blog. And of course, she was just as wonderful in person.
To be honest, I sometimes feel weird about this big blogging world and wonder about the connections I have made. But after Saturday, I feel lucky to have met so many wonderful women through blogging--I was so impressed by Kelsie and Brittany's sincerity. It's exciting to create friendships with women who share my excitement for life. Like Brittany said, it's just online BFFing. I love that.
So here's to blogging.
To blogging and to new friends.
