Ya’ll, there’s a whole lot of awesome at this table.
Have I mentioned that I love the internet? Let’s break it down. Once in a while you stumble on a blog you like and you start to make comments and it’s fun and then one day you realize, wait a second! They live really close by! SaahhhWEET! And so it goes, one blog leads to another and another and before long you are attending local events and your mind explodes because there are MANY awesome bloggers that you had no idea were right here on your front porch. Yay!
This is me getting excited because I was finally able to make it to a mom’s night out with some of these ladies. And they are fabulous! I mean it’s always fun to meet new people, but something about having a common interest just catapults the conversations into overdrive. As I think about what it means to be a blogger, and especially a “mom blogger”, I realize that having a local blogging community is insanely important. And I am really loving our community! Last night was full of shopping and good food. What could be better?
