Blogger Meetup With Audi
At the invitation of a blogger whom I've long admired but never met in person, I went into NYC after a hard day of work and spent some quality-time getting to know someone new. Her name is Audi and her fashion-blog is here.
As you can readily see, Audi has an interesting and individual style. She puts together outfits with creativity and panache. I always enjoy her posts and suspected I'd like her as a person.
That was an underestimation -- Audi is palpably charming, highly intelligent, deeply informed and cultured in ways I respect. I found her to be enchanting and our time together flew like mere minutes.
Audi was passing through town for business and she offered me the chance to dine with her. We went to one of Manhattan's nicer restaurants (Seven) which was a perfect forum for long conversation and quality food.
I've learned, from a few meetup experiences, that there are dimensions to people that don't come through online. Even reading someone's blog regularly doesn't convey important information about the person. Meeting in person is essential to really getting to know someone. I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to learn more about Audi and enjoy fun times with her. Life can be grand, if you let it!
