Two Bloggers Meet

Yesterday was Fat Tuesday, also known as Mardi Gras.  I was invited to a Mardi Gras party by one of our very own, Julia, from  It turns out she and I only live about 30 minutes away from each other.  We live in a small world after all.  It was so fun to actually met Julia and her husband Bruce in person, rather than solely through the internet.  Julia and Bruce welcomed us into their beautiful home and we connected instantly.  I think this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.  Julia had quite the Mardi Gras spread, complete with shrimp and Andouille sausage gumbo, red beans & rice and of course, and King’s Cake; not one, but 3 different variations of King’s Cake.  Being Jeanne, from “A Jeanne in the Kitchen” I had to bring something from my kitchen too.  The Linzertorte I made was for this party.  Everyone ate too much good food and had a fantastic time.  Thank you so much Julia and Bruce and Laissez le bontemps rouler!

Larry and I dressed for Mardi Gras.


This sign hangs in Julia’s kitchen.  Yep.  This could easily be my motto too.


Julia and Jeanne.  Two bloggers meet.  Don’t you just LOVE this painting behind us too?


This whole blogging business is about connecting with people.  It is so much fun to make those connections real and in person.  So …. Reach out.  Make those connections.  You never know how many new friends just might come your way.

  1. That’s pretty cool.
    I remember participating in NaNo one time and wondering how many people in my neck of the woods might be participating. Surely, there can’t be that many writers. And then I went to a write-in at Panera. My jaw dropped. There’s a lot of us writers/ bloggers everywhere. We just need to look.
