So I've been incredibly lucky to meet a big chunk of my favorite bloggers and people in my two years of blogging so far, as evidenced below. Tears were shed and smiles were bigger than EVER BEFORE. I've met authors that have changed my whole world.
But there remains a gaping hole in the "people I have yet to tackle hug" category.
I've spoken to her on the phone before but THIS ISN'T ENOUGH. Blogging is better with a Brit, which is why we blog together. It only seems right after two years of squealing over this and that, that we should be able to do this in person. Not to mention share several cocktails in the process.
2. April (Good Books & Good Wine)
One of my initial blogging idols even before I decided to start a blog of my own, April has been an inspiration to me for a long time. She's practically a staple in my daily texting/book blogging life. Yet another person I need to hug and share cocktails with.
3. Ginger (GReads!)
One of my good friends from the very start, I need to have long discussions over coffee about our favorite books and music with this girl. Life won't be complete until this happens.
4. Capillya (That Cover Girl)
Besides being awesome, she can sing. We are depriving the world of beautiful (at least on her part!) music until we unite and finally have our chance at a duet.
5. Tara (Hobbitsies)
One of my favorite ladies with whom to discuss books. We have very similar tastes, so I think we need to have a reading party someday.
6. Lisa (Lisa is Busy Nerding)
I LOVE THIS GIRL. Can we play Zelda for 15 years?
7. Asheley (Into the Hall of Books)
She understands my nursey problems and was my own personal cheerleader throughout nursing school. I very well may get the chance to meet her in a couple months. VERY EXCITED.
8. Asher (Paranormal Indulgence)
This girl has an unmatched excitability about her that I would LOVE to see in action at an author signing or event.
9. Erica (The Book Cellar)
We've ALMOST met at a couple different events, but one of us was always not able to make it. Can this be fixed?
10. Chelsea (Coffee & Cliffhangers)
One of my musical soulmates. We WILL meet at a concert someday.
11. Melanie (Reclusive Bibliophile)
Because it's a shame we haven't met yet. Perhaps over Pumpkin Spice lattes, we can discuss the awesomeness of psychological thrillers?
12. Sash & Em (Sash & Em)
Because these girls are seriously fun and, hey, they could also teach me how to dress maybe?
