In honor of another blog friend meet up, I decided (after more than two years with this blog) to try and figure out how to add links to my side bar. I'm far from done, but hey...it's a start. It took me three days to get this far, but I think I'm getting the hang of it. In Green Kitchen style, I'm going with a list of friends I've met and one of friends I hope to meet someday. My entire blog could use a face lift, but I'll get to it when I get to it.
Anna and I met last Friday. We braved the pouring rain and masses of people at the museum to get the chance to put a face to the blog. It's funny how lines blur with blogging. I'm not exactly clear when I was first introduced to her site, and when we first began exchanging comments. It happened so naturally, this online friendship, that it seemed to have always been there. And maybe this is just how it is with Anna. We had a meeting spot in the museum, what we weren't expecting were the crowds. When I first arrived I wondered how I would find her. We thought it would be easy as we each had a babe in a stroller and an almost four year old by our side, but this described about twenty other women there. Then we saw each other and knew right away. As with the blogging relationship, our real life friendship came with the same ease and comfort. I loved reading her entry about our meeting, especially the part about our boys. They couldn't have been any cuter together.
This is Anna's photograph of the two of them struggling to walk in the rain while each keeping both hands on the umbrella. It was quite precious and they got the doting attention of every onlooker.
I couldn't be any happier that just a few miles separate us...hopefully there will be many more outings to come.
