The Old Fashioned Way

by Jen on Friday, July 29, 2011

{finally met Kristy, who graciously bent down to my level to compensate for my shortness!}

I'm sure all of us would agree that one of the biggest perks that results from the hours spent writing posts and up-keeping a blog are the relationships that are inevitably formed. Last night, I was blessed to be able to spend some good old fashioned face-to-face time with three girls who I've gotten to know over the course of the life of this blog. I'm glad that social media has pushed us past the days where "meeting someone from online" was seen as creepy because there are just too many fun people in the world- Kristy, Nicole and Jess being prime examples :)

Happy Weekend!

You all look amazing! I love the color in these photos.

Jen! All of you are oh so cute! I love that first photo of you and Kristy! Freakin' adorable!

I'm so jelly of all you ladies that got to meet up. I wish I were in Vancouver this week! I'll make it there one day... maybe sometime later this year. Crossing fingers!

Here's to a fab weekend, my love! Muah.

xx Love & Aloha

GOD! I really wish I could have been there to join you.

Next time I'm in Vancouver, I hope I get to meet you. Of course, my husband may have to tag along to play Photog.

Looks like a great time--and a delicious one at that! So jealous.

And yes, Kristy is indeed tall!

Such beautiful pictures! I've always loved Nicole's blog, but I'm so excited to check out the other girls. Obviously, I am in full agreement with you re: new friends over the was seen as creepy before, but look at this amazing little group of bloggy friends we've made in Van. I feel so blessed to have met all of you and I think it's so special that we're all able to make these connections!

Hope you have a great Friday love! Oh and burgoo...I almost cried when I had that grilled cheese sandwich. My two favourite things in the world (cheese and bread) thrown together into the most amazing piece of Heaven ever. Sooo good.

I had so much fun last night Jen! I cannot wait to do it all over again sometime soon, hopefully? :) Fingers crossed I didn't traumatize you, I tend to scare off quite a few people, haha! I've also decided that I will be stealing your camera from now on, I hope you're okay with that ;) Also, I'm glad meeting people in person from the internet isn't seen as creepy anymore as well, it was indeed amazing to meet you all! <3

Here's to another meet-up soon! xo

The photos turned out great and all you girls looked amazing! It was lovely to finally get to sit down and chat with all of you. I agree, the benefits of social media are far reaching and it's great when you are able to meet with fellow bloggers who share the same love of fashion and having a good time. Nothing beats good food and good company and yesterday was certainly no exception. Jen, you are as adorable in person as you are on your blog and it was a pleasure hanging out with you! Until next time xo

The grilled cheese at Burgoo is my fave! You girls all look lovely :)

This looks like such fun- it's really amazing the way that blogging can change your life, and strange, but wonderful, that it leads to real time friendships. You all look gorgeous. And that sandwich looks divine! I adore Burgoo :)

Aww!! So cute that you guys got to meet! Blogging blows my mind sometimes, and yes, totally agree, it's so nice that meeting people in real life from the internet is not weird like it used to be! Looks like you girls had an amazing time! Adore you both! xo.

Hehe blogger meet-ups are so fun! It's like meeting long lost friends. Looks like you guys had a blast and where did you find such a cute, bright yellow wall for a photo backdrop??
