Annual Block Blog Party Prep

I just sent out an email with the preliminary time and date of the meeting to those that voiced their willingness to participate. Please let me know if you did not receive it or if you haven’t had the chance the ‘sign up,’ but would like to join the virtual gathering.

Stay golden!

One day at a time...

This will be a quick one.

If you’ve been with me for a while, you know that I host a Block Blog party every year around Labor Day (September 2-4).

Each year there was a different twist on it. Check out the links below if you’ve missed them.

Ever since last year, I’ve been musing about this year’s party, and I came up with a virtual meeting. I think it would be a fun idea for us to gather with a beverage and/ or a meal and just chit-chat and get to know one another better.

A Golden Day

There has been a lot going on lately, hence my absence around here. However, I did manage to get away for a couple of days to reset my brain. I even got to meet Jeanne, which was a ton of fun.

A Jeanne in the Kitchen

I am sure many of you know our very own Goldie. Goldie was one of my first blogger friends and has been a loyal friend ever since my humble beginnings as a blogger. But like so many of our blogger friends, we had never actually met in person …. until now. We just knew we were going to be good friends in real life as mush as we were in the world of blogging. And YES! This is true. We hit it off instantly. 🙂

Goldie is now my third blogging buddy whom I have actually met in person, and all have been huge successes. I just know we will all be good friends for a very long time. 🙂 First I met Julia from http://retirementrvdream.wordpress.com/.
