One of the unexpected perks of blogging has been new friendships.
Well over a year ago, I received an email from a woman named Grace. She had stumbled upon my blog and she also had four boys that were similar ages to my men.
Through our back and forth emailing, we formed a friendship. We exchange Christmas cards and stay in touch through the challenges and victories of mothering four boys.
But, we had never met face to face.
Grace and I always joke about meeting for coffee, which is funny because we live about 12 hours away from each other. Or about an hour and a half plane ride which I'm seriously considering now that we've met.
Four hours later we realized that they were kicking us out of the coffee shop.
We had such a nice time together and I am amazed at the broad range of topics we covered in that relatively short period of time.
It was really the highlight of my trip and I can't wait to do it again Grace!
