Face-to-Face With Another Blogger

One of the highlights of my recent vacation was having lunch with a fellow blogger, Lene. Meeting someone in person that you've only been able to exchange notes/comments with is an interesting experience. You have already discovered that you have some things in common like pets, hobbies, and are easily distracted by (sometimes) the oddest things.

My Mom was with us and the conversation ranged from books, to neighborhoods, to pets, to maps, to families, to Monty Python...an altogether pleasant and wonderful way to finish up a vacation.

I am really quite shy and have a tendency to just clam up and/or freeze with indecision when in a new situation. Here's my tip: If you ever get the chance to meet fellow bloggers, suck it up and go for it. You won't regret it!

You got to meet Lene! I've been trying to tell her to squeeze into Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's suitcase when she comes to California.

It was very much fun.

Funny you should say that about the shy thing. I am, too. I tend to say that I make a great second impression, becaus ethe first time I meet someone, I'm twisting myself into a silent pretzel of shyness. Glad we didn't have that problem! ;)
