From time to time my non-blogging friends ask why I keep blogging. My answers are several. I like writing about books and this is my favorite platform. I like sharing my photos. I like the experiences I have as a result of blogging. Whether it's BlogHer or events I am invited to, my life is richer because of them. But lastly and most importantly, I really like the friends I've made through Buttercupland.
While I was recovering from bronchitis I received this lovely card and tea bag from my buddy, Missy. Though Missy isn't blogging now we've kept in touch and I was delighted by her thoughtfulness. The tea -- delicious -- made one evening of coughing much less difficult to withstand. On another evening I received an email from sweet Anne, who sent me a wonderful article about kohlrabi. Good reading and great recipes. Thanks to you both!
I am blessed to have wonderful friends in New York and around the country. But I can't imagine the last six years without my blog buddies all over the world. The deepest thanks to all of you! And a toast to those I've yet to meet. It all starts with just a comment.
This weekend will be spent with friends long-standing. I'm attending a reunion of my college class in Richmond, Virginia. In addition to touring and programs I'll spend time with friends from college days. But I will also have the opportunity to get to know women from my class I didn't know in college. It looks like a great weekend and you know there will be pictures.
As ever, thanks for visiting and hope you're having a terrific Thursday!
