Following the blog of a stranger is rather interesting. If you follow long enough, you kind of feel like you “know” them. Of course, you wouldn’t continue to read unless you felt a certain connection. All that to say, last week I read on one of my favorite blogs that the blogger was going to be at a city nearby me doing a little craft to promote her sewing book. I was excited not only about doing a free craft, but meeting the sweet lady behind the blog Cakies.
She is the real deal. Very sweet, and a lot of fun to talk to! It was pretty crazy seeing her adorable little ones that I’ve watched “grow-up” on the blog.
She also happened to recommend an ice cream shop around the corner, and it truly was incredible. I highly recommend A La Minute! The orange honey and the salted caramel were both incredible.
We decided to take this opportunity to visit with some dear friends who also happen to be “pen pals” with my girls. (2 of our 3 girls even share the same birthday!) They met us for ice cream and then the kids had a blast just playing and window shopping through the fun historic district.
Fun craft. Meeting a blogging “friend.” Yummy ice cream. Seeing good friends. It was a blessed day!
