When I think of my dearest friends, I’m always amazed by quite how we came to be friends. Hobbies, houses, luck, and chance. Commonalities, differences, and blogging…
This is my third ‘People I love’ post, in a series which may well run and run. One of the greatest blessings in my life is the amazing people that populate it, and if I get to do a little happy dance from time to time to celebrate them, well I think that’s pretty awesome!
Person Number 3? Is my girl Christy.
Christy and I began reading each others blogs two, maybe three years ago. I think we found one another through a now defunct blog of a.n.other, but kept reading each others posts…a mutual love of music and books, a similar sense of humour and a shared vocation kept us reading…
Then in Oct 2008 I went to Canada for a trip, and spent a fair few times with the lovely Miss C – coffees and drinks and Portuguese baked goods (om nom nom). The friendship we had cultivated online transposed beautifully to the real world – isn’t it lovely when that happens?
Over the last wee while, we’ve written and facebooked and sent each other gifts and mix CDs. And we’ve read and read and read, through the good, the bad, and the strange…because that’s what good blog-friends do. And then this summer Christy came to stay and I was lucky enough to have days and days and days with this awesome girl. Oh, how we chatted!
Christy, I’m so glad we’re friends. You are so clever and funny and pretty and determined, and you know more about music than I could ever aspire to! Thank you for all the fun and silly times we’ve had – whether it’s sweet nourishing coffees, facebooking each other Flight of The Conchords quotes, or drinking lots of wine and cutting a rug. I am blessed to have a friend as kind, understanding, and cool as you.
