Oh – hi friends! Long time, no talk. Sorry for the radio silence over here; my full-time+ day job has gotten the best of me. It’s always interesting when my blog goes a little quiet, my body starts physically reacting. My day job is so heavy on the analytical side that my body starts recognizing the imbalance. I wake up from weird, strange dreams as my brain starts screaming, “we need to create!!”
Well, since the creative process can take a little longer than a Saturday-morning-hour, I decided to roll out another version of Link Love: the Weekend Edition. Come check out these brave and creative posts from blogger geniuses across the internet. Meanwhile, I’ll be working on a new challenge post for next week. Hope you’ll join me!
For anyone who is considering fostering dogs, this is a must-read. I definitely think this is something that Kina and I will do in the future, and I appreciate this heart-warming post from Kristyn about the selfless risk of fostering.
I absolutely loved this post from Anna about dating through her marriage. I know this is a common piece of advice from married folks, but Anna enhances this tip by identifying very specific and unique things that make her marriage work.
Last weekend, I ventured down to Woodbridge for the third Virginia Blogger Meet-up. I wrote about my other two trips here and here. The event’s name is really tough to comprehend and all ;), so, to fully explain, a Blogger Meet-up is when a number of Virginia women with blogs meet up to eat some yummy food and discuss all things womanly – from blogs to gossip to love to life.
It’s amazing how much we cover in a couple of hours.
Because here’s the thing about meeting people through the internet – you never know what to expect. When I first decided to meet these women in person, I didn’t know whether to study Blogging 101 the night before, fake an extroverted alter ego or bring my can of mace. Seriously, I thought about bringing mace.
The other option was to just be myself, but that terrified me even more.
