Blogging Friendships

I can’t thank you guys enough for all the kind comments on Mr. Sugarplum’s story yesterday. I loved reading about the people who’ve impacted your life, and really appreciate you sharing. And the fact that each comment earns $1 donation to the Alzheimer’s Association from BlogHer and Capella, is just the cherry on top!

It’s been a busy few days with the kids going back to school, but I have started going through all our beach pictures. The ones that immediately stood out were from our time spent with my sweet friend, Megan, of Honey We’re Home. I adore this girl, and it’s funny to think that this special friendship came about because of our mutual love of blogging!

Megan & Cass

We live about five hours apart, so I always jump at opportunities to see her. This time was a real treat because we got to meet each others kids. Her son, James, is an absolute doll, and all of us were instantly smitten by him. I swear he has a French accent! And it’s hard to tell in pictures, but Megan is the tiniest little china doll…seriously, I wanted to tuck her in my pocket.

Cassie and Family.48

We stopped by her house on our way to the beach (I loved seeing her gorgeous home in person, it’s even better than the pics, if you can believe it!), then she and sweet James joined us for a day later in the week.


The kids loved playing together, and Babygirl became surprisingly maternal with James. (Leaving Megan and me to chat it up!)



My kids adored Megan and James, and spent the rest of the week talking about them. When Mr. Sugarplum joined us mid-week, he was treated to an earful of all the cute things James says and does.


I say this all the time, but blogging has been such a blessing….all the creativity and support…and especially the great friendships that have bloomed from it. I can’t encourage you enough to step outside your comfort zone and breach the ‘virtual friendship’ line. You never know if a new life-long friend will be discovered.


Have you made friends online? Have you been brave enough to meet any of them in person?

***And to my other fun Houston blogger friends…I wish we could have all gotten together! Next time, for sure!***

  4. So far no blogging buddies yet. However, it is nice to know that perhaps someday this could turn into me being able to talk to actual adults every day 🙂

    I would say I've connected with 2 people that I would LOVE to meet from blog land…I came very close once…we were both in Chicago at the same time but didn't realize it until it was too late 🙁 LOL Lord willing, I'll get to meet them one day. It's such a blessing to find such sweet & encouraging friends with similar interests. So glad you got to meet your friend & hang for a day…what a gift!
