on blogging

sometimes this seems like tricky business. how much to share here in the big world wide web? in truth, the connections i've made have been incredibly powerful. i really appreciate how much others have shared, and reading other mamas' experiences has enriched me so. finding my way (as a parent especially) continues to be an amazing journey, and i am grateful to have so many positive places to turn for inspiration.

when i connected with kimberly online, i was drawn to her blog's simple style. as i read more, i found we had much in common. not least of which: we both live in portland. i kept thinking, shouldn't we meet? and then i read this. and i read molly's posts about her friendship sparked online. and after i saw among comments that kimberly was looking to check out a book i have on my shelves, and then she mentioned wanting to try our pear cake... it only made sense. come on over!

i sent kimberly an e-mail, would she and her boy be up for a play date? yes! we didn't have the ingredients to bake another cake afterall, but we did pop some popcorn and make some herbal tea. we revealed a bit of the messiness i generally edit out of most posts, and kimberly graciously complimented our home. it was so very lovely to meet in person. to find even more connection. to shake some of the invisible world wide web walls up a be vulnerable.
