So Friday, I got this amazing wonderful surprise. Here's the story:
A week ago, B. Miller started this fabulous Pay It Forward Giveaway (that I so totally wish I had come up with). Go check it out if you haven't heard about it.
ANYWAY, Courtney, the Southern Princess, as a break-off from that, honored me with a Pay It Forward post. She listed 3 bloggers she would love to hang out with in a non-virtual way, and I was one of them! For those of you who haven't read my profile, she and I are fellow princesses after all. And royalty must stick together what with the paparazzi and everything. But what a lift in my day. So much more than honored. *insert cheesy grin.*
So I wanted to spread the love and choose three people that I would love to spend time with in a non-virtual way. Normally, I would list you all, but that would be a long post that no one would finish reading, so here we go with three:
Jenny Matlock: I have been rolling at her garage sale posts, and her big heart just shines through. Though we've never met, I wanted to pull up a lawn chair, pour a tall glass of lemonade with one of those little umbrellas in it, and chat about all the interesting people who stopped in. And she refers to her husband as Mr. Jenny. How can you not want to meet someone who does that?
Lydia Kang at The Word is My Oyster: When I found out she's an Internal Medicine Doctor, I felt that instant she-knows-what-I'm-going-through connection because my husband is on his first year of his Internal Medicine Residency. She does this fabulous post called Medical Mondays, and her posts are always thought-provoking and fun. I'm never disappointed when I visit her blog. Plus, she's working on the secret to getting 25 hours out of a day. I so intend to be around when she learns it as I'm sure she will!
Vicki Dixon at Ron Empress: Okay, maybe I'm cheating a little on this one because we have met before, but she is that wonderful. First, her writing is beautiful. Like, I'm-green-with-jealousy-because-my-writing-will-never-be-that-beautiful beautiful. Next, I always hear about the coolest contests from her. And finally, It's from her encouragement that I started a blog at all. She has been a huge support to me in this endeavor we're on. Go visit!
So what catches your attention on a blog and makes you want to go back? What makes you feel connected to a blogger you've never met?
