It's been more than three years since I made that eight-hour day trip to meet my first blogger in person. And now I think I'm addicted to meeting bloggers. I get as excited (if not more) about meeting them as I do seeing people from my Real Life.

Thus it happens that, on one of our many car trips circling the Midwest this month, we ate breakfast with Butterfly Wife. And Butterfly Wife is one of the few bloggers who's yet to meet my husband, so there's a milestone. She was gracious enough to meet us at the crack of dawn for a coffee before we headed out of town. I'm so glad she squeezed us into her schedule.

So who's next?

1 It was a pleasure of meeting both of you and your husband.

2 *Sigh* Meeting someone from one's blogging life is like a blind date, butterflies in your stomach, hoping they are just as cool in real life as on their blog, etc, perhaps a little awkward the first few minutes, but then after a while it's as if you had known eachother forever. I can remember my "first date" with you...and it was a double date, 'cos I got to meet Mrs. Rubberboots too! Question: At what point does someone from one's blogging life, become someone from one's Real Life? Or do blogging life people always hold a special place?

3 Let me know if you are ever in my neck of the woods. I'm always thrilled for any company that does not want to read "The Monster at the End of this Book" over and over again.

4 I couldn't sleep for nearly a week before SpouseBuzz 1 - I know totally what you mean! And then before SB2, I couldn't sleep again, but it was because I was so darn excited about getting to see everyone again. It was like rolling into my hometown, but without the baggage.

6 Wait...isn't the end purpose of this trip to see a Cardinals' game in St. Louis? Well, if so, and if you have a spare moment or two when in town, let me know.

7 I met my favorite military spouses (and a military-spouse-to-be) because of blogging. Funny how that works out And CVG, they closed that restaurant where we had our "double date." Can you believe it?
