Happy Tuesday, lovelies! The weather's finally warming up here. It's going to be close to 80 today and all I can think about is taking a little breather. Pack a basket, pop open a bottle of bubbly and see where there day takes me. Spring is here at last!

I had such a wonderful time yesterday meeting We've been blog friends for 2 years now and having the opportunity to actually get to meet in person was incredible. She showed up with her beautiful family and bouquet of gorgeous anemones and they all charmed me beyond words. That is one of the most incredible parts of blogging that I never anticipated when I started this whole endeavor. Getting to meet the amazing people behind the blogs and the relationships that develop. Oh and silly me, I forgot my camera in my office so I didn't get a chance to take any photos.

And speaking of blogger meet-ups, this week is my lucky week because today I get to meet the lovely Isabelle of Pink Lemonade. I'll try to remember photos this time :)

Hope you all have a fabulous day! xoxo

Hi Dawn,

So glad that the weather is warming up and taking a picnic hamper with bubbly sounds like a great idea. How neat that you are able to meet up with some blog friends.

Happy week

It's a great thing to actually get to meet the people behind the blogs you admire. It's an enriching experience after you've developed only an online relationship with them. Have a beautiful day, Dawn! :)

Heather Pranitis said...

Spring has finally arrived. I'm excited you were able to meet a fellow blogger in person, I know exactly how you felt. Two weekends ago I traveled to California for a fun weekend and happened to meet live and in-person Kori from Blonde Episodes and Leeann from Join the Gossip - its really fun connecting with people you know virtually. Thanks for sharing and have a fabulous day!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

That really is the best part about blogging (and definitely something I didn't expect, either!)...I can't believe all the fun friendships that get cultivated over shared loves/obsessions (c: The blogosphere can be a lovely place!
