Taking Online Relationships Offline

One of the bonuses of blogging online are the relationships that are created.  When I first began my blog, I came across other blogs that interested me which I then began reading on a regular basis....not realizing at the time that some of these people would become my friends.

Monday I attended a workshop for Know a California Farmer being held in Yuba City.  Katie Pinke, who works for Ad Farm and helps to put on these workshops, is someone I consider a good friend.  She and I have been following each other's blogs for about a year.

It's a funny thing, these online relationships.  Katie knows all about my family and our life.  She knows that Bryce attends a one room school house and that Paige is more of animal person between she and Bryce.

I also know many things about Katie and her family.  I know she lives 100 miles away from a Walmart and 67 miles away from a Starbucks.....can you even imagine living that far away from a Starbucks?!! And I know that she lives in North Dakota on the prairie with her family.  

Katie and I met in person for the first time this past weekend.  What I didn't know about Katie is that she's 6 feet tall.......in flats.


















It was great making this 'in person' connection with Katie and am looking forward to hanging out with Katie at the next event.......which happens to be next week!













Here are a couple of shots of the workshop......
