Luckily, Anna is not a serial killer or anything crazy like that. But can you imagine following a blogger for years, then meeting that person face to face, only to find out they're nothing like who they are on paper? Suppose he or she is a total ***hole? Wouldn't that be a mess?
Through my love of reading, I met Anna Cade from Herding Cats and Burning Soup, and we've been following each other since 2014. Yep, that's a strange name for a blog, but it definitely speaks to who she is and then some. Well, Anna doesn't burn any soup, (at least that I know of-lol) but she does like trying out new recipes. Uh...she also really rescues a lot of cats, which is super admirable.
The irony is that we live about 35 minutes from each other, which we didn't know initially, and I think that happens with a lot of bloggers. Eventually we did connect in person, and every time we get together, I laugh like a nutty person because she's super funny. Her life adventures are something we can probably videotape and make a ton of money one day. She may be x-rated at times and opinionated, which is why I love her, but most people don't realize that Anna is one of kindest women on the planet.
Just because, she's been known to take people out to dinner at Chili's, or to hang out at a blogger event just to hang out, or to show up at your home with lots of chocolate goodies and over the top stories of her life.
They also may not know how organized she is by actually using an old-fashioned planner. Nope, there's no Google Calendar for her, and I totally agree. Give me my SpongeBob Address/Phone Number Book any day.
Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the US, and I'm grateful for being alive, the love of family, kindness from friends like Tawanna, Kelly, Kelly, Tianni, Mary and Lanie. But I'm also thankful for connecting with a quirky blogger who basically lives right around the corner that I can hang out with on-line and in person, and has these really great ideas. Well, she also shares a lot of pictures that will either have you laughing out loud or blushing, and there's nothing wrong with that. Have you met a blogger you follow? I'd sure love to meet more!
