One thing I really, really love about blogging is the community that develops among bloggers and readers. I've gotten to "know" several fellow bloggers via Facebook, and I am so thankful for the blessing they are to me. It's wonderful to have friends who have had similar life experiences as me, and who are just a little ahead of me in life, to learn from and be encouraged by. I have gotten to know a few bloggers with whom I have real-life connections. One, Kayla, is married to a former fellow camp counselor, and another, Beth, goes to my parents' church and became friends with my mom before Beth and I ever "met" via blogging.
I am absolutely thrilled that I get to meet both these amazing women during Joshua's and my visit to my parents' this week! I met Beth this morning at church and Kayla and her family are coming over tomorrow. Neither of them is blogging regularly at the moment, but Kayla has a website for her photography business, and I'm linking to Beth's post full of her wedding pictures. It is a delight to get to know both these beautiful women, and I hope to meet more of my "blogging friends" in real life someday!
