taking a LEAP!

i feel much like little red squirrel.
like i am taking a leap without a net!
i met a flickr friend last week at the museum,  and i meet another today very soon.  this is making quick work of #5 on my 37 things list! 
i am super excited, kind of evident since it is now 1:01 AM and i have not slept and do not feel tired.  i get so nervous.  we have chatted, shared laughs, our art, ourselves, but over the safety net of our computers.  actually crossing over into the "real" world is a little scary i have to say.  i did it last year for the first time EVER when i met diane in VT and i am SO glad we did.  she is a real friend, someone i would stop by and bring muffins to,  if only she lived down the street.   so wish me luck and courage today.  my hubby graciously took the day off to be mr. mom so my new friend and i have the freedom to do whatever we choose. (thanks honey!)  now  if only mother nature would be so kind and stop all this rainy business.  oh well.
 i am sure today will be filled with laughs and hugs and hopefully a bunch of great photos!   :)  

happy monday everyone!
have any of  you made the "leap"?

I recently leapt and met a fellow blogger who was visiting Los Angeles from Chicago. It was great -- weird but great. Have fun!

Have a great day Kristin! Taking the leap to meet a blogger is something I've toyed with but in addition to having limited get together time I am insecure I won't measure up to people's expectations of me, of how they perceive me to be because of my blog. That I'm not cool enough (sounds like 7th grade), green enough, mama enough, photographer enough, crafty enough - who knows. My insecurities are pathetic really.

By the way, great red squirrel pic. We only see the grey ones and I love that about to leap capture.

renee no you are SO correct. such insecurtities and why do we put this on ourslef? these friends wouldn't reach out if we weren't a little interesting right? yes. but i was so "what should i wear" or "my hair is sticking up," so 7th grade for sure! this is the REAL me warts and all. LOL thanks everyone. good to kow i am not the only silly one.
