Yesterday a few of the Whangarei bloggers and I hopped in a car and toddled off to the big smoke to meet up with some other Kiwi Mummy Bloggers.
We arrived early...and a little apprehensive. As each blogger arrived we nervously greeted each other, trying to link together the face with the blog. In some cases these faces and blogs were new to me, but others I felt I knew better than friends or relatives. I read about their life struggles and triumphs, what they are baking, what their kids have been painting lately, how work is going, what books and music they are into. We all blog about such different things and lead different lives...but were united in one thing. We were all mothers. You always have something in common with another mother....the craziness that is parenting.
So it was a pleasure to meet and give each other a big squeeze. Laugh together and eat together.
I still can't believe how many new friends I have made through this blogging world, in my home town, from NZ and around the world
We had a great time. The food was great, the atmosphere was great, and the company was great.
Special thanks to Leonie for the organizing (and for letting me steal this photo!)
