Very recently I was speaking with someone about the unexpected blessings that this blog has brought me.  We talked about the way that some online friendships translate into real-life ones, while others do not.  I’ve written about how this transition has been, in many cases, rocky for me.  There are a couple of shining exceptions and for these genuine friendships I am deeply grateful.

One of these is Denise.  Denise and I had connected online before we met at BlogHer, and our friendship continued when she came to Boston for Karen Maezen Miller’s mother’s plunge in September.  Denise showed up at my door holding a box of silly bands for Grace and a bottle of my favorite sauvignon blanc for me.  She was charming during an oh-so-casual dinner in the kitchen with Matt and then we sat on the couch and talked into the wee hours.  I wish she lived next door to me.  I’m very much looking forward to seeing Denise again this spring when she and I and our daughters are spending a weekend together.

I was deeply honored when Denise asked me to be her very first guest poster!  What an immense compliment.  I love Denise’s blog and know that you will too.  Please go read my piece at Musings De Mommy and while you’re there stay a while and look around.  You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you, Denise, for sharing my words in your lovely space.  I’m delighted beyond words to have met you and look forward to many years of real friendship, in every sense of the word.
