Blog Friends Are Real Friends

As we meet each other through our blogs, friendships are made even if we have not actually met in person...do you agree with me? I have been very blessed to meet so many wonderful gals since I started my blog and I look forward to meeting some of them in person one day. The other day I got a message from one of these sweet ladies, she needed my address so she could send me something that made her think about me while she was out shopping this week...I was so thrilled that she had thought of me...a blog FRIEND! Meet my FRIEND...Sylvia...her blog is MY TRINKETS. With a memory of a 51 year old...I think I met Sylvia at my weekly NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAYS PARTY...please correct me Sylvia, if I have this wrong...you know getting old is tough! So what did she send me? A beautiful "COASTAL CHARM" sign...now you see why she thought of me when she saw this beauty. Not only did she send me this beauty, I also received
 a sweet little valentine's card and a bag of "conversation hearts"...now this bag of candy will disappear real fast around here at my house. So if you want to meet a new friend...head right over to Sylvia's place and tell her I said HELLO!!!
                                                    Now y'all come back...real soon,
                                                                       Linda

                                                               It' so ME...I LOVE IT!  
                                                         A pretty little touch of rhinestones!
                                                                              SWEET!!!!!!
                       This is how coastal Alabama is looking today...temps reached the low 60's!!!
                                                Looking out from my bedroom at the lagoon!

Thank you Sylvia...you are the best!!!!!

Yes, blog friends are real friends! I have met some of the nicest people...and remember those first few that "followed" me and gave me the encouragement to keep going. You were one of my first followers. Thanks Linda!

how sweet! i definitely feel as you do, that blog friends are real friends. there's a few gals who i definitely feel that way about, and "talk" to them nearly every post they make, and vice versa. i often think of them when i'm out and see something...it never ceases to amuse me that i see something a "friend" would like, but i don't actually know these friends!

I have met some really lovely friends through my blog... I loved this post!

Tales From My Empty Nest said...

What a beautiful sign and so perfect for you. Wasn't Sylvia thoughtful to remember you? That was so sweet! I too have some wonderful blog friends and I have been fortunate to meet many of them in person so far. I still would like to meet more of them in person. You for one, were so nice to check on me today! That meant a lot to me. What a lovely beach place you have. The beach is gorgeous! I know you love being able to relax there on the weekends. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

Linda said...

Such a sweet post! Oh yes, blog friends are real friends!

Cat & Cricket said...

Lynda said...

You are a sweet friend, indeed! You were the first out of 30 viewers to take time to comment on my blog...I didn't even name it correctly(Newbie in blogville) Thanks for the kind words! Love your blog! I'm now a follower...well I follow Jesus...maybe I'll just read your post!

Honey at 2805 said...

Agreed! And sweetie, you were one of the first who made me feel so welcome. What a sweet gift you received from Sylvia.

Thanks for your sweet comment & am planning to join your party this Tuesday.

Rene said...

Congrats to you Linda on reaching 1000 followers. You are such a sweet blogger. (I'm loving the beach photo)

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Now that was definitely sweet and yes, sooo you! How cool is that? Thanks for sharing the kindness.

La said...

I wished for a trip to the beach with you this weekend and you delivered. Thanks, Linda!

Bella Michelle said...

Aren't blog friends the BEST??? It is such a wonderful way to find kindred spirits! I am soaking in your beautiful photos and those temperatures!!!

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

Linda,
What a nice gesture! I like Sylvia already and haven't even been to her blog yet! I love my blog friends as much as my real friends. In some ways my blog buddies are actually closer because of all we share in common.
Congratulations to you on reaching a thousand followers. I'm so happy for you, and definitely not surprised! You are so nice, gracious, enthusiastic, and sharing. I feel like I really know you just from reading your blog. And you've got great style too! ;)
And your question about what to give away in your last post? IMO something you picked out personally would be more treasured than a gift card. It would feel like a present from a friend, just like what Sylvia picked out for YOU. Right? It's really all about celebrating 1000 friends. May you enjoy the friends you have already, and make many more along the way.

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

Good Morning!

Oh, what a sweet gift! I'll have to go visit her blog.

Congrats on reaching 1000 followers! Your blog feels like a big hug :) I just love it!

Hope you have a beautiful Sunday! With those views, I think it would be pretty hard not to.

;D Michelle

Dar said...

How sweet of her! Without my (most of the time) "daily" fix of my bloggy friends and their sites I would feel completely deprived. You are all filled with such inspiration, motivation and sometimes just down right laugh out loud FUNNY! I totally agree with you my bloggy friend!

Becca said...

What sweet friends ... and, what a GORGEOUS view you get to enjoy! Love it! Have a wonderful day, Becca

Modern Country Lady said...

How very sweet- you are right, blog friends are fantatsic!! And WHAT a view!!!

Nancy's Notes said...

Blog friends are the best, no doubt! What a sweet gift! Oh my Linda, what a great view from your bedroom~

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Isn't that the sweetest thing? Blog friends really are special.

That is the view from your bedroom? You should be in a good mood every day! I'm so jealous!

Sylvia said...

Hey Blog Friend...I am so glad you liked the gift! ..Yes we did meet from Nifty Thrifty Tuesday, which by the way I enjoy very much. I tell my hubby that I have to find and buy thrifty things just for your blog...hahaha...he doesn't buy it! sigh...lol

Have a great weekend...
Sylvia

Donnie said...
