    I completely agree. There’s many beauty bloggers that I have only known online for years and then when I met them in person—it wasn’t like meeting someone for the first time, it was like meeting an old friend for coffee. You already know each other and seeing them face to face only solidifies the friendship you have.

    I loved the pictures in your post. smile I’ve also been following you on Twitter (but not in a stalking kind of way lol)

    I’ve been blogging for THREE years and have only met one other blogger in person—and that was only because she lives here in town and was already a friend of my best friend/sisterinlaw.

    It makes me sad—especially when I read about the great friendships that develop offline. 

    One of these days dammit.  One of these days…

    Ooooooh! OK I’ve written and erased four times because I can’t come up with something to properly capture what I intend to say. I just recently started blogging and it was mostly just to keep a record of what was going on with my kids and me. I didn’t anticipate making such a RAD BFF, or building a whole additional support network - or how cathartic it would be to put our daily lives out there into the ether (aka internet). I am feeling extra super blessed.

    P.S. I read through the whole first time cringing in wait for the duck comment…
    P.P.S. Long live the hippies YAY BELLINGHAM grin

    This is part of why I’m so keen to get to BlogHer..after spending the last year getting to know the inner workings of you peoples’ deviant minds I want to be able to put real faces to those names!

    Sydney, I was trying to work it in the post but I couldn’t make it as funny as it was in person. ‘Cause “We have special ducks here. They SWIM!” “um, Sydney? All ducks swim. They have webbed feet.” Just didn’t come up. Oh, looky there. IT JUST DID.

    Underwater, underwater! grin LOL.

    The community was the most surprising and continues to be the most rewarding part of blogging to me.

    I’d miss you folks if I stopped.

    Last night I went to the wedding of friends who live in Bellingham. And a hot topic was how Bellingham seems to be the Cool Place To Live. Seems like everyone is moving up there…

  • March 8, 2008

    Maggie, it’s always one of the top ten places to live. It’s just one of the bottom ten places to find a job. Darnit. I’d move back in a heartbeat.

    MammaLoves We’d miss you, too. You can NEVER leave. :0)

    Sleeping Mommy, ONE DAY you will meet everyone. Never fear, hon. One day…

    Okay, so I just went and read Sydney’s blog and immediately added her to my favorites!  Just the mere fact that her girls are named Joy and Clara made me go “awwwwwww!”  She seems like good peeps and we could all use more of those in our lives!

    Oh, and I think I’ll take a vacation to Bellingham… it looks wonderful!

    I can relate to this post on such a deep, “I feel you” level. I grew up in Dallas and in my mid 20’s moved to Seattle.  WOW, it was a whole other world for me.  I loved it. I lived there for about 5 years, met someone, moved to NYC, then moved back to Dallas and after being in Dallas for a year, spend most of my time trying to figure out how to get back to Seattle. It’s just the perfect city to sum up what’s important to me.  Dallas is so not!

    Vanessa, come on up, hon. I grew up in Houston and I know the feeling of needing to get out. I love me some Texas but I could never leave the rainy green of Seattle. And the mountains, and the snowlines, and…. wink

    KatieKat, if you do you better damn let me know!

    Awww…I miss B’ham.  I’ve been gone a year now.  I seriously have a B’ham scrapbook of all my favorite places there. Great place, great people - but I never met Supermama!  *sigh*

    Gotta love that the boardwalk connects Boulevard Park to that peanut butter pie in Fairhaven… (another *sigh*)

  • March 9, 2008

    I know!!! The Colophon peanut butter pie!!! We should have a Bellingham blog party, wouldn’t that be fun?

    I’ve been struck by this whole blogger universe…I’ve found that the community of moms who participate in this online neighborhood to be life savers. Although I differ from many of the moms because I work outside the home, it has been such a gift to read about other moms having similar challenges, making my ppd feel less isolating. I can totally see now how people make true friendships online. Thanks for sharing your new friendship!
