A few months ago I was reading the comments on another blog and saw the name of a blogger I thought could be a potential neighbor. Her blog name was Minnesota:Madre. Hmmm... a Spanish speaker, Minnesota, and a fellow mother? My kind of woman! I went to her blog, left her a comment and soon heard back from her. We discovered that not only is she local and a mother of three, but she quickly informed me that we had previously met and she knows both of my siblings. What? Our friendship quickly developed and soon she introduced me to another local blogger and stay-at-home mom who also knows my siblings.
Kerry, Sarah and I met a few weeks ago for a cup of late night coffee and some amazing conversation. Already it feels like I've known these two since I was five. Last week we planned a play date with the kids (we all have four year-old boys!) but one of Kerry's clan was sick. Instead, Sarah and I gathered with five out of our six kids. Such fun for all.
