I shared lunch at The Wild Fork today with these two lovelies:
You might recognize them as Footy Pajamas and Walking in Memphis, respectively. Lovely ladies, lovely writers.
I've known Leslie for many years through OBU (we were roomies!), and I became close friends with Katie five years ago after moving to our new town. These two gals had never met face to face, but they got to know each other through blogging (even as far back as good ol' Xanga....!), so it feels like we've all known each other for ages.
Les was passing through town on her journeys, so we decided we MUST meet up so the two could 'meet' for the first time. It was so fun to chat and share stories about motherhood, friends, family, etc. for a few hours over a yummy lunch. (And Leslie's baby boy was pretty yummy, too! So good. Just sat quietly and let Mommy chat with her friends. Training him up right!) ;)
Isn't it funny how you feel so connected with another person simply through blogging or using other social networking sites? I love that I can keep up with friends that are far away (or close by!) and still feel involved in their lives even if we can't always meet up in person.
Anyway, it was a fun lunch together! Thanks, gals!
