As many of you know, Rebecca from Love At First Book and I do a lot of book bloggish things together. What you probably didn’t know is that we hang out in real life whenever we can. We met in Denver but both grew up in Florida, so this past week when I was home visiting family I took a day trip to hang out with one of my favorite book people. My sister and her friend came along for the ride and we had a fantastic day. After grabbing some Dunkin Donuts coffee, we headed to Satellite Beach for a beachfront lunch, bought matching maxi skirts, and ended our day with some delicious Friendly’s (which they don’t have in Colorado but was a big part of my childhood). We stayed at the beach just long enough for me to say that I dipped my toes in because, honestly, I could go years without seeing the beach and be fine with it.
Aside from seeing Rebecca, of course, the best part of the day was when my sister’s friend told me that we make book blogging sound cool. That’s right, a non-book nerd listened to the YA drama and #ReadHachette campaign chatter and thought it was cool. I must say, her comment cemented the day on my “top blogger moments” list. Below are a few of my favorite photos from the day, and if you want to know how to make friends with some awesome bloggers, check out Rebecca’s 5 Ways to Connect With Other Bloggers.
