    Hi Tara, I’m Anne from Life on the Funny Farm (http://annesfunnyfarm.blogspot.com), and I’m visiting from the Mom’s Monday Mingle.

    It is so nice to be able to meet “cyber friends” irl, isn’t it? Some of my best friends are women that I met through blogging before I ever saw them face to face. It’s very special getting to meet them.

    Anyway, it’s nice to “meet” you! Hope you can pop by my blog sometime to say hi…

      Anne, thank you so much for stopping by! If I really stop & think about it, so many people in my life have been from the internet :) I even met my husband online back in 1997!

    That looks like so much fun. Blogging has let me meet so many wonderful peeps like yourself. I can’t until BlogHer next year. It’s 3 1/2 hours from my house, and I can’t wait to meet all the bloggers I have been chatting with over the last 1 1/2 years online.

    Hello Tara,

    What a lovely summary post about Saturday’s event. We met at the beginning of the event, still while standing around in the circle. I was with my daughter, Elysa, and we spoke for a little while before everyone went their way to shop and hop!

    I wish I had the chance to speak with more of the fabulous women there, but I guess there were just so many of us! Next year, we’ll have to reserve a larger room.

    I’m now your new follower and look forward to catching up on your posts. I hope you will come by altered-artworks for a visit sometime soon, and say hey!
