So, on Friday, I did that whole crazy thing of actually meeting someone from the internet.
Let me start from the beginning. . . (which sounds like this will be a long story, but it’s not, I promise!)
Allison from The Book Wheel won the Liebster Award the other day. While reading her post, I noticed we had a lot of similarities, like both of us have rescue dogs. Allison’s from Gainesville and is a Gator, and I said I was a Seminole, and we figured out that she went to FSU for a year a few years before me, and then she moved to Boston.
Coincidentally, Boston is my next move for mid Jan-March, but when I asked Allison about it, she had just, last week, moved to Denver!
I mean, come on, that’s a crazy coincidence considering I’m in Denver until mid January.
We became Facebook friends and realized that while we don’t have mutual friends, we have mutual mutual friends. This was extremely helpful in convincing myself (and my husband) that Allison wasn’t some 40-year-old man or a catfish.
Allison and I met up in downtown Denver and spent a couple hours chatting over coffee (so long, in fact, that we totally forgot to eat lunch). We spent the rest of the day wandering around, checking out the Denver Public Library and some of the downtown area.
Meeting up with Allison was awesome because not only does she enjoy reading the same books I like, but she also understands the blogging world.
Another great thing about meeting Allison from The Book Wheel was that I liked her as a person, and made a good friend in real life.
