But being the loyal friend that I am, I promised to read her blog, and even faithfully commented in the beginning before she had lots of followers. And lo and behold, I fell in love with it! Not only was it great for staying updated with her life (because friends, you see, we went from living 2 feet away from each other and seeing each other every day to living 20 miles apart and having our lives taken over by teaching) but I also got lots of great ideas from hers and other blogs that she's mentioned. Latest example, I tried baking her Chocolate Covered Peanut Clusters last night and went and bought the same table runner featured in her Christmas Decor, which I don't think she knows about yet, so we'll let that be our little secret!
I even got to the point where I was sad when there weren't new blogs up and where I thought, wow, how cool is it going to be for her to look back at those blogs in 20 years and remember so much because she took the time and energy to document things that were important to her.
Ciao and lots of Lu love!
