Every once in a while I think to myself, “This never could have happened if it weren’t for my blog.”
This weekend was just such a moment.
I sat in my mom’s kitchen and had a delicious lunch made for me by a woman who had travelled across the sea from Spain to spend my birthday with me – a woman I never would have met if it weren’t for this blog.
What a delight it is for me to introduce you to “Aiketa”, my friend from Girona, Spain who has been a faithful reader and commenter on this blog for almost five years. She is in America for forty days to celebrate the finishing of her big exam after medical school to determine where she will do her residency as a doctor.
I am here to tell you that it is possible to meet amazing people through the internet. Ten years ago, I would have said that is just creepy. Today, I am showing one of them around my town and enjoying her genuine kindness and bubbly personality.
We are laughing our heads off and comparing instagram photos. I am learning so much about her culture and planning for a day when I can go visit her beautiful home country!
This blog has blessed me in ways I cannot count and given me friends I couldn’t imagine life without.
Life is good!
