You: Where have you BEEN? Your blog’s been empty for over a week, no note, no posts!
Me: I know, I kind of disappeared—
You: You could’ve DIED, and I wouldn’t have known!
Me: Or I could’ve gone on vacation, but hey, tomato, tomahto, right?
You: I don’t remember you saying you had vacation plans.
Me: It was kind of spontaneous, actually. I’ve been working so much that life’s just been moving around me. I needed a break. And sleep.
You: Did you go anywhere?
Me: Yes and no. I stayed in NYC—it was a staycation—but I met up with old friends, and I also met someone from WordPress for the first time!
You: What! Who?
Me: The awesome and talented Melinda Kuscera. We became friends through WordPress over the past year and recently realized that we both lived near each other. So we set a time to meet at Grand Central Station and spent an entire afternoon talking. We didn’t even notice the time pass.
You: Did you do anything else on your staycation?
Me: I did. I revisited some old favorites, and I crossed something off my bucket list: I finally rode the ferry to Staten Island! The skies were blue, the wind was in my hair, and I’ve got some gorgeous photos I’m putting together for a Hanging Out With Life post later this week.
You: It sounds like a week well-spent.
You: Does that mean you and your muse will be catching up on a lot of writing this week?
Me: A lot…and then some!
Weekend Coffee Share is a cozy blogging event, now being hosted officially by NerdintheBrain, that I’ve adopted for my blog.
Sometimes, you just need to sit down with a friend, sip a hot beverage, and talk while the rest of the world pauses for a moment.
