One of my favorite things about this whole blogging thing is the people.
Yes, I'm a broken record. People, people, people. I just loooove me some people. Not all at the same time, but seriously - the world is a lovely place overall.
So, as it happens with many of you delightful lovelies out there, I build some friendships via digital means and social networking. Some of you have been there to carry me. Some of you have let me carry you. Yet others ... well, we just click. We share some stuff, some history, some really unique things.
That's my A. We have always had a lot to talk about. We have some shared experiences and understanding of one another which has caused us to always keep gravitating together.
Being the very conservative, withdrawn person I am (*cough*), when I mentioned I would be in Austin last week, and she said, "You should spend the night at our place!" ... I, of course, said, "OKAY! Oh, but I can't be there until after 11 pm."
Yup. Meeting she and H for the very first time, and I don't cross their threshold until late into the evening! I couldn't help myself, though. We had been dying to bring our friendship into flesh-and-blood for such a long time. They were both so unbelievably gracious. Their sweet daughter was scrumb-diddly-icious. They are expecting a baby boy in just 10 weeks - whoop! It was just so very, very rich.
I guess this post has three points:
#1 - to serve as a massive THANK YOU to A and H and J for sharing themselves and their home with me.
#2 - I wanted to pimp their blog "We are Fambly" because it's a fun read.
#3 - as a warning to be careful when you offer to meet me by having me spend the night at your house. I will totally take you up on it ... even if I'm not arriving until after God has gone to bed.
