My Dinner With Ashley
I finally met my soul blogger sister this past weekend. Ashley and I hit it off in the blogosphere easily as if we'd always known each other. I've been wanting to meet her in person for the longest time. And I couldn't have been more pleased by the outcome.
Ashley jokes about her photos being trickery with photo shop and that's why her skin is so perfect and her eyes are so sultry. Well, it turns out that it's not true. In person it's the exact same. Perfection, I tell you. Her skin is like porcelain. Like a doll. I had to touch it to see if it was real. I touched her hair too. I'm so creepy. But to be fair, I asked permission first. (Um, yes even creepier, I see that now.) She said yes. Does it matter that she looked terrified? Not really. It had to be done.
When I saw Ashley I took off running and gave her a full on spider hug. That's where you use your arms AND your legs to hug someone. I was overwhelmed. What can I say? She handled my enthusiasm gracefully. She was so sweet and kind and really funny. I'm a big fan of people with a sense of humor. And when it matches mine? Priceless.
The worst part about the evening was the part where I had to say goodbye. It all went by way too fast. I felt like we'd just skimmed the surface. I hope we will see each other again so that we can talk and laugh some more. And perhaps go the the bathroom and pee together again. Oh yes. I just said that. When we were in the bathroom Ashley said, "Is this weird that we're peeing together?" We laughed at how weird it was but decided it was also pretty awesome.
I can safely say that I am more in love with Ashley than before we met and I didn't think that was possible. She wrote about our meeting here.
