Meeting Sarah

The world is full of interesting people; you just need to look for them. 

Sarah is a blogger who lives in New Orleans.  I started following her blog (called "Destrehan's Daughter") about two years ago.  She's in her thirties and works as a video producer.

Due to Sarah's location, I never thought I'd ever get to meet her in person.  But I just did!  She and her husband are in New York to visit the city.  They're seeing all the sights, one of which is officially listed in the NYC Tourist Handbook as "My Dinner With Ally."

We went to Sarabeth's and had a lovely meal.  You really get to know people better and more quickly in person.  During our discussion, Sarah addressed a broader range of interests than I've seen her discuss online.  Our conversation hopped from one fun subject to another.  Her husband, Jeremy, is equally charming and wore a snazzy bowtie.

The world seems to get smaller and smaller.

  2. You have so many blogger catch up's, I get a little jealous. The gloves have arrived and as long as it stops raining I will take some snaps on the weekend, thanks so much for your adorable card.

    1. For a meetup down-under, I tried to sneak into the box with the gloves but customs found me and sent me home...

    1. Me, too. In addition to getting to know people better, meeting in person makes them seem "real". Sometimes online "friends" seem like illusions we've created to keep ourselves company. Hugging them reminds us of their independent reality.

  8. I always think your meet ups sound so lovely and fun. You are a popular destination! LOL Whenever you get to Vancouver Island don't forget to drop in! I imagine the chances of you getting here are somewhat higher than of my getting there, but who knows! Happy Weekend!
    xoxo

  11. Congrats on another meet up! you really are in a prime location for meet ups!! Definitely in person meetings are way more bonding than internet. Not that you can't know someone online, but what a connection meeting someone you already click with!

  12. I had so much fun when we met up too. I spent the weekend bragging to my family before the wedding about the delicious meal and amazing time we had with our friends at Sarabeth's. Remember if you head South, you have to call me!
