This weekend I think I had the most fun I've ever had as a blogger! I got to meet up with Emily Jane and some of her other bloggy friends downtown. Emily and I started e-mailing and reading each other's blogs when we found out we both shared a love for The Time Traveler's Wife. (You know it's my favorite book, so someone else who loves it as much as I do is basically my book soulmate!)
It was cool to get to meet her in real life and to hang out with new friends, too. Blogging and e-mailing has been like a new and improved version of having a penpal. I love the idea of knowing people from other parts of the world and being able to connect with them. Now though, I realize that it's also a bummer to have friends in other parts of the world who are so far away. After meeting Emily it's like she's here, but then I have to remember she's not. It's kind of like when family or friends are in town from far away...it's a blast for a few days...until they leave and then they're just not here any more to hang out with. I guess if we can't be neighbors at least we can still keep in touch. Horray for blogs and Facebook and Twitter!
I have to give a shout-out to Ashley over at Sound of Silent for making Jordan this paper crane! I somehow managed to keep track of it and not squoosh it on the way home so I could give it to Jordan. He had fun saying the word "origami"!!!
