Surprise meeting

Last night I met one of the bloggers I follow. We ran into each other at a local coffee shop. I hope that doesn't violate any unspoken rules of blogdom. It was so exciting to meet this woman whose blog and, therefore, life, I have been following for months. She was prettier than her photo and bubbly and fun. I knew she lived in my town but who would have thought we would meet by accident.

It's kind of complicated but a friend of mine, Diedra, who also blogs, was there and she recognized her. Knowing that I follow "Graceful," she brought her over to introduce me. What a great surprise!

I had been there for a meeting and she was there to present a reading for a writer's group she belongs to. I couldn't stay to listen but I'm going back in January when she reads again.

This blogging thing is fairly new to me but the vistas it has opened and the friends I feel I have made all over the country and the world are amazing. It was more than I could have ever imagined.

Have you met any of your blog friends?


  1. I cannot tell you how excited I was to meet you and Diedra in person last night! When I got home I gushed to Brad not about the reading, but about the joy of meeting you two. Can't wait to see you again in January! It is astounding, these blogging friendships. I feel so blessed to have met you and Diedra.

  2. That was so. much. fun! I'm so glad you were there for the moment!
