One of the things I love the most about blogging and social media is being able to get out and meet those that I have met online. A year ago, I would not have dared met an internet buddy in real life. However, through interacting with others online I feel I have built a special bond with some of these internet friends.
Last night, Amy from Living Locurto and a co-founder of I Heart Faces, Antique Mommy, and I got together at a Turkish restaurant for laughs, socialization, and good ole girlfriend fun. Although this was not the first time for me to meet with Amy, it was the first time for me to meet Antique Mommy. What I found is that all three of us share common artistic interests and that each of us enjoy being mothers to young children thus helping to build a bond between us as friends.
So there we were talking amongst ourselves and enjoying each other's company when we realized that time had flown Six hours later I found myself driving down the quiet, black, nearly deserted city streets and I allowed my mind to wonder in sweet, unadulterated silence and poignant delight of interacting with other adults. I think that is what I like the most about blogging--interaction.
Soon I found myself back at home as I dropped my keys on the walkway to my house--too tired to pick them up and yet contented the same to leave them there. I went inside, crawled into bed, and waited for morning to come while saying to myself: Dearly I am blessed with friends, family, and safety--'cause I am not getting those keys til morning.
