What a weekend!
My entire weekend was spent falling in love with Ithaca, NY. I'm so jealous of this reader who actually gets to "live in the middle of nowhere" as she puts it. So lucky! I was happily surprised when I got her comment that she saw me at the Treman State Park on Friday. What are the chances of that?
She wrote that she didn't want to intrude so she decided not to say hi. I completely understand her reasoning, but I would have loved to have met her! But since she didn't, I realllly hope she saw me at my best/normal moments, like putting sunscreen on all my kids or playing with them in the water or feeding them a snack. But what if she didn't?
Bela Karolyi suddenly entered the park and started coaching me. And the real kicker was when I shamelessly asked Uncle Nick to take a picture to validate my abilities. How insecure must I look sometimes? ha
Or what if she saw when I was forcing Oscar to pose for a picture (above)? He was so whiny and saying things like, "Aww, mom. I just want to go swimming. Come on mom, lets go!". And then finally he walked away in disgust. That too wasn't me at my best. I'm sure there are other things I'm forgetting.
Who knows what she saw, but if any day I would have wanted someone to see me, it was Friday. It was one of my favorite days I've had in awhile. I don't think I yelled at my kids or Rob once, even in my head! I'm just glad no one saw my family in Boston. Or did they? Yikes. I don't want to know.
Since moving out to NYC, I'm always on the look out for one of my favorite bloggers: the Sartorialist. I hope to run into him someday and observe how he works.
What about you? Have you ever seen someone you only knew through their blog? Did you say hi?
