once upon a time, i went on a blate.
with this gorgeous gem of a lady.
|Anna and Em. love at first sight.|
for those of you that might be a titch behind the times,
a blate is a blogger-date.
it is a beautiful thing.
people who once only stalked each other on the internet
becoming friends in real life.
a little weird if you let yourself think about it too long
but Anna turned out to be even more beautiful and amazing than i had imagined
and not at all the 56-year-old creeper man i feared she'd be.
so last week i happened to be in Atlanta.
my brother's wedding was in Blue Ridge, GA
and i got into town on Thursday, but Nick couldn't fly in until Friday
which left me a day and a half to hang out with my two preggo besties
before i had to pick him up from the airport and drive north to Blue Ridge.
i gave Anna pretty short notice that i was coming into town
but she is--fortunately for me--an obliging girl
and dropped everything to meet me for breakfast.
AND she brought her precious lambs with her.
those of you who are moms
know that having breakfast with toddlers ain't easy
but Anna and I had a wonderful time getting to know each other
over quiche and cappucinos
i shared my crust with baby V
she shared her headband with me.
Gabe was a little unsure of me at first
but then i tied his shoe
and we were besties from then on out.
Anna left me a little in awe.
so effortlessly put together
such a wonderfully loving and patient mama.
i hope i can be like her when i grow up.
until then, here's my outfit post of the quarter.
and what i wore to breakfast with Anna and her toddlers.
clearly i have some experience to gain in child-appropriate clothing.
