Meeting a fellow blogger!

Today, John and I had the privilege of meeting Sharon and her husband, Mr. Bill, today for breakfast.  Sharon and her husband are on a road trip up the northeast and when she contacted me back at the end of January that she was going to be near my area for a few days, I was excited!  Not many people come up to our little area (but they should).

Sharon and Bill are quite the hikers and you can read about their adventures at her blog Gains and Losses.  Anyway, we coordinated schedules and Sharon wanted to meet at North Country Cafe, which is in focus pretty much every Wednesday on the blog 😀

We had a great talk.  One of the great things about the internet community is that you really can form friendships online.  It’s surprising when you meet an online person in real life how you can just start talking right away.  John and I are both somewhat shy, but when you meet someone you have corresponded with online – it’s like you already know them and have plenty to talk about.  Not to mention that all 4 of us have a whole bunch in common (music being a common thread).  A couple cups of coffee help me out as well with the chattering  😆

I had to laugh at my hair in this picture.  It looks really red, which it isn’t.  Must be the lovely hue of florescent lights.

I can’t wait to see how Sharon portrays the North Country on her blog!

    That’s so cool! I agree with you. I feel the same way. I had an online relationship with another blogger and then met in person and it was like we’d been friends for years.

    I found your blog a few months ago and my family is coming to the Adirondacks on Thursday for a week. We are interested in going some of the places you like 🙂 like the farmer’s market and going biking.

    Absolutely – it’s one of the most amazing things about blogging and internet friendships – you really DO just start talking like you’ve known each other forever!

    Very nice that you got to meet Sharon and her husband!

    I keep thinking about that. When I met Sharon, there was no awkwardness at all. And spending that much time with her was just the same as being with some of my in person friends that I’ve known for years. Its pretty cool, really, that we can develop friends all over the country like this!

    I think there should be a blogger reunion every few years, just so we can meet up. What fun! Also, you look sooo darn cute in that picture! Lookin’ good girl!

    Very cute photo! I’m jealous – I’ve always thought it would be cool to meet fellow bloggers. Everyone who blogs (to me) seems like a semi-celebrity. Too cool. I should move to a bigger town so I can have people to visit too.

    Yep – I’ve been lucky enough to meet some bloggers in real life and you do act as if you already “know” the person, because you really do!

    Great meet up! 😀
