So that first blate...was amaaaaazing.
Y'all know how people say "when you know, you know" about finding your true love? Well, at the risk of sounding nuts, that's totally how I felt about my blog friend-turned real life friend.
I was fortunate to be able to meet Julie from The Smitten Mintons as her and her husband were driving through town. Julie and I clicked as soon as we started following each other's blog and have been dying to meet each other. We actually had a sleepover first blate and after calling our husbands to assure them that "she's not an 80 year old man, she really is who she says she is," we were off to dinner and nonstop chatter.
I really don't have any words to describe it other than perfection. We literally never ran out of things to say and it was a feeling of instant comfort and friendship. It was definitely that cliche "I feel like I've known you for years." There's something about bloggers that we just "get" about each other.
Julie brought her dog, Maisy. After a little bit of nerves on both sides, we finally allowed Maisy and my THREE dogs to play. And play they did. They definitely slept like babies after that.
Cashmere and Maisy checking each other out.
Finally REAL LIFE friends!
I kinda wanted to cry when we were saying goodbye...totally not fair that we live so far apart. We definitely made a promise to meet up again at some point in our lives. It's a must. Especially when we have babies.
Can y'all believe that is all the pictures that I took? #horribleblogger Julie got some really great ones of the pups, so definitely head to her blog and check them out.
Kudos to our husbands for trusting our decision to meet!
PS: I'm guest posting over at Liv's blog for her Girlfriend Guide series, talking about what I look for in a bestie!
