fair trade

Never miss the chance to make the virtual real.
Crossing over from cyberspace to face-to-face
can be extraordinary.
Last weekend, Katherine Van Schoonhoven and I
 did just that. We met near Boulder, 
shared a good meal in a restaurant with our husbands,
and continued a conversation we had already carried on
 for three years on our blogs.
It was like meeting an old friend for the first time.

Katherine generously surprised me with a sketchbook,
like those she fills with the wonderful drawings
 you can see on her blog.
As icing on the cake, she also included three cool pens.

I had also gotten her a little gift,
a fair-trade organic Chocolove
 73% cocoa chocolate bar with currants & almonds.

Sadly, I ate it before she ever got here.

My apologies, Katherine.

Hey, I got you some virtual daffodils.

Kvan and Pvan are lovely. The proof. I want the proof by seeing the two of you bloggers in a photo, though.

I got you beat, Sam. I met 2 bloggers this week, and I will post @ When Bloggers meet, With photos.

Uh-oh, Casey... we are proofless. Check Kvan's blog for further testimony, though.
