It’s funny, when I started this blog I didn’t expect to make new friends. I had read about bloggers who found new friends and a supportive community group through blogging. I didn’t really understand how that could happen. I couldn’t imagine having a “friend” who you had never met. Well, I was wrong.
There are certain people I feel like I know. We have regular conversations (through blog comments). I follow along with their home life adventures, challenges in life, and celebrations. You know… like real friends.
The beautiful tile (above) came in the mail for me this week. Rebecca, from This Present Life, saw it in a store and thought of me. Friends, I’m here to tell you that bloggy friends are REAL friends. As my friend Serena says, “Leave a comment below. Tell me what’s going on with you. Like friends. Real friends. ‘Cause that’s what we are. Friends.”
Thanks, Rebecca! I LOVE this! It is such a thoughtful gift. I put it in my kitchen and I’ll think of you every time I see it. By the way, real friends send real-live thank you’s, so a proper thank you is in the mail!
