it's been a very busy week so even though the best highlight happened on monday evening, i'm just now getting a chance to tell you about it. . . . . i had the pleasure of meeting a blogging friend i've been admiring from afar for a long time. let me tell you that it was well worth the wait, and if you can create the magical chance of meeting blogging friends in person you should absolutely do so! all the anticipation was perfectly balanced by the reality i encountered, from the very first greeting hug to the gratitude filled goodbye hug. ms.paris-parfait was visiting san francisco from her fabulous home in paris and tangobaby joined us to create a perfectly inspiring triad for one enchanted evening. we three blogging friends dined on delicious tapas at iluna basque in north beach, and quickly learned that our long distance admiration was not only well founded, but further enhanced by getting to share so much more in person. i was pleasantly surprised to discover there is much more to our connections than we first thought. i was so thoroughly inspired and in awe of these wonderfully talented, inspiringly determined, deep souled women that i've been on cloud nine ever since. three is a magic, lucky number indeed!
