Miranda & Brittany: offline and offroad
Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Brittany Vandeputte in person. As one of the original members of the Studio Mothers community (evidenced here) I’ve come to think of Brittany as a friend — but sometimes I wonder if it’s an odd thing to think of your “virtual” relationships as friendships. Now that we’ve met in person, I can attest to the fact that it doesn’t matter whether connections are made on cyberspace or face to face. A friend is a friend.
Brittany generously allowed me to stop in on my drive home from Ithaca, New York. I was in the last leg of a 12-hour round-trip drive to return my oldest son to college, and I was grateful to have a short break with Brittany, her husband Tom, and those two little guys you’ve all read about — Sam and John — in their charming new home. I should add that I had invited myself over, and the visit occurred smack in the middle of what would have been the bedtime routine — so that just goes to show you the strength of Brittany’s Southern hospitality.
Thanks again, Brittany — see you in October!
i am so happy you 2 got together! it was only a matter of time, and how little time it was, as brittany has only recently arrived ‘north of the border’! wish i could have been there, too!
very cool! You always wonder how that “in person” meeting is going to be…
It was awesome to finally meet Miranda in person. She’s the sort of person who just walks into a room and the energy goes POW! and every is re-energized. I just wish she’d been able to stay longer…
A friend is a friend regardless of where. There are friends to whom you do not speak for months, then pick up the phone and it is like yesterday.
Face book has brought so many friends together. Friends that have gotten lost over the years for one reason or another. Renewed connections, catching up and just plain chatter of the day to day.
Meeting someone in person that you have never physically met before and have a connection with is a moment to remember.
