I have been traveling and hanging out with cool people all summer.
But now I’m home. And I feel like I’m 16 again and I’ve just come home from summer camp and I desperately miss all my new friends.
When Janice and I were teenagers, our favorite place in the world was a small Island in Howe Sound, BC, Canada called Anvil Island. It was beautiful and peaceful but the main reason we loved it was the people. We LOVE meeting new friends and having time to get into deep conversations.
And this summer I have met so many awesome new friends and connected in person with countless long-time blogging friends. I have had SO. MUCH. FUN.
I partied with my peeps at BlogHer 09 in Chicago, went shopping with the girls in Boston at the TJ Maxx event and then hung out with some brilliant folks at Stompernet Live 8.
Here’s a snapshot of a few of us having dinner in Boston at the TJ Maxx event. My new BFF Christine Koh took the photo.
In this photo, from left to right: Lori (A Cowboy’s Wife), Jo-Lynne (Musings of a Housewife), me–Susan (5 Minutes for Mom), Louise (Mom Start), Heather (one of our PR hostesses), Allison (Petit Elefant), Allison Worthington (Mrs FussyPants), and Audrey (Mom Generations).
But it’s back to reality for me now. I’m a little jealous of Janice because she has a few more fun blogging trips lined up for the next several weeks. (I know, I know… I am going to Italy in September to visit family, so I can’t really complain. LOL.)
I think my next big blogging event will be BlogWorld in October. (And after that will be Mom 2.0 Summit 2010 in Houston and BlogHer 2010 in New York… but those are so far away. Hopefully I can sneak in a bunch of other Blogger Meetup events in the meantime.)
Thankfully, I’m still having fun connecting face to face with some of my blogging friends with our new weekly snazL parties and on our new site Say It Face to Face.
But of course, nothing beats hanging out in person.
