Oh my goodness, you guys, such a good weekend! It was only two short days, but I have so much to say that I’m pretty sure I will be blogging about different aspects of it all week! 😉 This past weekend Christopher and I went to visit our dear friends Alan and Casey (and baby Landry!).
So how do we know these wonderful people? Through blogging. Yup! Casey has a blog over at TheHeartOfAWoman. She doesn’t blog quite as much now as she did back in 2012 when we first started talking, but our friendship blossomed quickly through emails and texts and then actually meeting for the first time last summer. 🙂
I love how blogging brings people together. I have some amazing friends in Memphis, but I also have lots of acquaintances here who I am friends with merely because of geographic location. If I moved, then we probably wouldn’t even stay in close touch. It’s the opposite with blog friends! Even though we don’t live close together, we talk all the time. We share about our lives, we encourage each other, we swap advice. We have similar passions. We are friends based on common interest not just geographic location. Not that I need to tell any of you guys reading this, haha! Of all people, you guys definitely get this. 🙂 Again, I have some awesome friends here in Memphis, but I am also so thankful for the friends I’ve made through blogging. 🙂
Casey is such a blessing to me. She encourages me in my faith and she speaks God’s truth into my life. She really is sweetness itself. It is SO easy for us to sit down and talk for hours. And that’s exactly what we did this weekend, haha! We spent so much time talking that I’m not sure how we had anything left to say by the end of the visit, but that’s just how easy it is with her. 🙂
And I love how these two get along so well! Christopher is friendly and can talk to most anyone and I knew that he and Alan enjoyed chatting last summer when they first met. But I had no idea that they would talk as much as Casey and I did, haha! I love when it works out that way.
And sweet Landry was soooo excited to see us. Okay, maybe not as much, haha! But in her defense she’s only met me once before when she was itty bitty. But I still loved seeing her. She would shriek with laughter while running through the house like a little whirlwind. I can’t believe how much she has grown just since last summer!
