What on earth would we do without email? Can you imagine life without it now? I certainly can’t! That’s not to say that I don’t appreciate a nice piece of snail mail, but thanks to the ease of email, I’ve seen virtual friendships flourish and ultimately transform into real life friendships!
Take the lovely ladies behind the oh so fabulous blogs Ciao, Chessa! and The Beauty File for instance. These gals and I started corresponding after being frequent commenters on each others’ blogs. Eventually that led to us exchanging countless emails about everything under the sun. Through these emails we discovered how much we had in common. Without these emails, we might never had made plans to get together in person. This past February, we all met up for lunch and the Rebecca Minkoff show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! It was so amazing to be able to sit down and chat with the girls who had become my friends thanks to email!
Obviously being able to see them on the regular in person is preferable, but since I live in good old Tampa and they live in the city that never sleeps, being able to write each other about our kiddos, our blogs, fashion and whatever else life throws at us and then have it delivered instantly to each other’s inboxes is a real blessing! I know because we stay in touch that way, the next time our paths cross again, it will be like no time has passed at all! For that, I am so grateful! I would definitely say that this age of technology has served me well. Without it, where would us blogger buds be?
