Blogging Friends Are The Best -

Getting together with friends is always so fun and making lifelong friends with fellow bloggers you met online is totally awesome.  You know the saying "Make new friends, but keep the old - some are silver and some are gold"  Well blogging friends are definitely Gold.

I first met a group of Arizona Bloggers at a fun lunch in October 2009.  There was a large group and so much fun to meet everyone.  Such a great group of ladies.


Out of all that group there were a few of us that became good friends and have continued that friendship today. Some are still blogging and others aren't but we all love getting together. From left to right - Liz (Rose Vignettes) , Linda, Laura's daughter aka The Fashionista, Laura (Decor To Adore), Cindy, Ceekay.  Missing in this photo is Jamie. (She's the beautiful lady on the right in the brown dress in the above photo)

Life changes, but friendships don't.  Ceekay passed away this past year from a long battle with cancer.  Cindy lives in Wisconsin and only comes to Phoenix to visit her son once a year.  Laura and her family moved to Ft. Worth last year.  Even though we are now miles apart, the friendship continues.


Cindy came into town to visit her son and his family, so Monday we all got together for a brunch.  So much fun - -From left Jamie - Liz (Rose Vignettes) - Linda - Cindy and her grandaughter Addison.



I borrowed this pic from Cindy's FB page.  (I forgot to take my sunglasses off)

  Even though some no longer blog, we stay in touch with facebook.  Two fun filled hours of laughing and talking as fast as we could.  I love these ladies, they are so much fun.

Do you have life long friends that you met through blogging?

  1. Oh Miss Marty! I miss you ladies SO much. Sniff! Where is the Star Trek transporter when you need it? I'm hosting a blogger Valentine luncheon today and how I wish you all could be here.

  2. This is so awesome, Marty. Yes, I've met some fantastic women I call friends, but only virtually so far. I hope to have the chance to meet them personally some day. You are blessed!

  5. Oh, Marty, you are so lucky! I haven't met any bloggers in my neck of the woods, nor do I even know if any of them are organized! I have met quite a few lovely ladies (and a few guys also) through blogging and consider them to be my friends, though we have never met in person. Anyone out there who would like to meet in Northern California?

  10. I have a bunch of sweeties I've met thru blogging and I would do anything to meet them in person and give them a big hug... including you Marty.
    I was a bit sad to see dear Ceekay with her happy lovely face.
    Happy Valentine's.

  11. I remember that first gathering. How fun! So sad that we lost Ceekay. I don't think there are many bloggers around my neck of the woods.

  15. I feel so blessed that I live about 45 mins. from Yvonne at Stonegable and we have become real good friends. Another blogger I have met is Shirley from Housepitality designs and she is SO sweet. I also met Mary Alice from Chateau Chic, but I consider all the women I have "met" virtually through blogging as friends, including YOU!!! Have a great Valentines with your sweetie!!!

    Have a wonderful weekend Marty.

  17. What a wonderful group of women there are here in the Phoenix area. I am looking forward to having lunch soon with Oliva, now that I have moved to Peoria. And I would love to be included and meet you one day, Marty. I follow your blog regularly, however I am really bad about taking the time to comment. I am not blogging at the present, just didn't have time because my grandson came to live with me for a couple of years. That's how I have dedicated my extra time, but now that he is back home, I'm feeling kind of free to "get involved" in my own interests. Thanks for this post. Very encouraging.

  18. I think it is really nice that you group of ladies became such close friends. I miss Ceekay and her sweet visits and I am sure you ladies felt the void when together.
