Weekend recap.

So, believe it or not, we did more than play with the Virtual Glasses ap this weekend. The highlight of my weekend was the Boston Bloggers Picnic put on by The Boston Day Book. While bloggy boot camp a couple weeks ago was fun, I didn't read any of the bloggers attending. So I learned some helpful tips, but I didn't walk away obsessed.

 Cue Saturday afternoon as I left the picnic on Cloud 9. Why? Because I got to meet some of my favorite bloggers, soak up the sun and drink the yummiest chocolate milk on the planet. As I sat on a blanket chatting with some bloggers I had an Oprah-aha, light bulb moment. This is why I blog. Yes, I blog to document Meredith's life, to capture the tiny beautiful moments in a string of potentially mundane ones. But what keeps me going? The community.  People that connect with my daily experiences. People who tells stories that reflect what I am going through. People who face hardships with remarkable courage. It's because of these things that I love to blog.

I left the picnic Saturday so happy to have met in real life the people whose lives I get to peek into virtually everyday. I can't recommend enough trying to meet up with some of your favorite bloggers in your area!

So, who did I get to meet?

Anna
Bridget
Natalie
Nina
Rachael

Be sure to check out their blogs!

And that's not all I did this weekend! Last night Chris and I went on a date. It was lovely. It had been over a month since we'd gone out just the two of us here in Boston. We got to go out twice in Georgia (thanks mom & dad!) but we also needed it here.

We started at Cambridge 1. Oh my yumminess. If you live near Boston, you gotta try their delicious pizza.


After dinner we spent a leisurely couple of hours sipping coffee, talking and playing Bananagrams in the new Harvard Sqaure Starbucks. I love date nights.

How about you? How was your weekend?

That sounds so lovely!

I am a little jealous of your blogger meet up :) With moving and everything that's going on, I've barely had enough time to write, let alone read... but you're so right. This IS why we blog.

It was so fun meeting you and getting a little sneakpeak into life post-pregnancy! Thanks for the tips--I think I AM going to get a Kindle. I hope we can set up another meet-up sometime this summer, it was so fun to talk with everyone!
