Like camera-swinging-crazed-tourists on happy pills...

In fear of being the last person to blog about this awesome morning (yesterday).. here goes!!
(Kristy, borrowed your photo!)
I was one of the LUCKY bloggers to attend the Whangarei bloggers morning tea yesterday, very kindly organised by the bubbly and gorgeous Jacksta-B.

I had butterflies doing a funky little dance in my tummy beforehand... you know, eek, will they like me? am I too fat? will I be too loud?will I spill my drink (lol)....will someone photograph it if I do?!!

But all that worrying was for nothing -  it was AWESOME!!! 

Making bloggy friends is totally like internet dating. You find a blog and you fall in love (with the blog). You swap comments, you 'get to know' each and then comes the big day... the MEETING!! And you find out they're not some psycho, internet stalking, sociopath (that my Mum worries about, see Mum, again they are very normal and nice).

The conversation flowed easily, the laughter rang out throughout the town basin... and the best bit... the camera's were going off in all directions!  along with a bit of camera envy and air photos.... (funny!)
(borrowed this from Jackie because I didn't get one of this lovely gal and her gorgeous new bub!)

And the cherry on top of the beautiful rainbow cake (aye, Kristy!!) was meeting Lisa's sister and having a wee chat to the lovely Lisa too.

What a LOVELY bunch of girls. I am so honoured to meet each of you and your cute wee kids. For someone who is newly back in Whangarei it was such a highlight for me... you know, real friends my own age! and better still - with interests like mine. And best of all, I know I am not the only one who photographs EVERYTHING!!!

I can see this being an ongoing thing for us Whangarei bloggers. One teeney tiny morning is just not enough time to spend with you all. 

Blogging ROCKS!

Go here to check out the blogs of these lovely ladies

Leonie said...

more coffee and cake (or tea, hopefully I will drink it rather than spill it in future!) sounds perfect to me!
