The Voice behind the Words

Blogging is an interesting hobby.  When I first began blogging back in 2008, I had no idea that there was a blogging community.  I just assumed that only people you knew in real life read your blog. I'll never forget the first non IRL friend that started following my blog, Lea Liz, I was so confused as to how she found it.  However, almost 5 years later, I now understand the ins and outs of the blog world.  I have literally made friends with people I have never met in real life, and it is so crazy.  It is weird knowing so much about someone that you have never spoken to in real life.  

Almost a year ago Kelly's Korner, did a link up that I participated in.  The link up was to find bloggers in your area, and through that I found 2 blogs.  Tammy's and Mica's.  We all started following each other's blogs, then became facebook friends, then instagram was only a matter of time before we met face to face.  They both have 2 young kids, and so we decided to meet up at the zoo today for our very first IRL play date.

I was anxious going in, but at the same time I felt comfortable. After all, I basically knew their entire life story. even though I had never heard their real voice... :).  To make a long story short, we met, enjoyed talking, and died of heat stroke at the zoo. However, it was so much fun.  I was glad to finally hear the voice behind the words, and I am sure they were caught off guard by my country twang. We plan to meet up again soon.  I love the new friends this blog has made me.

In other news the kids and I have been spending lots of time outdoors, swimming, playing, riding the golf cart etc.  

The days have definitely worn them out!

So happy we finally made a meetup happen! I had 2 worn out kiddos last night! I heart my internet friends (as my husband calls them, lol!)
