Blogger Meetup in Aruba
On Thursday I met up with Morgan of Beantown Momma and her adorable 7 month old son, Aaron.
She read on my blog a few weeks ago that I was going to be in Aruba and realized her travel dates and mine were going to coincide for part of the time, and a few emails later, we hashed out where we were going to meet.
We met at the pool of the Marriott Aruba
We saw this
ugly reptile iguana walking by
I do have a fear of reptiles but also am not a fan of the local iguanas here. They climb the sides of the house and walk on the tile roof of my house and have caused property damage. We had to replace part of our roof when we were here in December because of them!
It’s much prettier to look at the local flowers that bordered the pool…
…And the waterfall…
…And this beautiful sight:
It was wonderful meeting Morgan and Aaron
Morgan is so easy to talk to but her little guy was getting tired and needed some sleep and I had Skylar waiting for me back at our pool. So we said our goodbyes and I came home and hung out with Skylar.
I wonder if Morgan and I are the very first food bloggers, or bloggers in general, to ever meetup in Aruba? Cathy you and I should meet up next, here!
I did meet a reader in the Aruba airport when I was leaving the island after our December 2010 trip. She recognized me in the Aruba airport.
Some of my other blogger meetups include:
And all the many, many meetups Madeline and I used to have.
And I met so many bloggers at FoodBuzz, too. Meeting other bloggers is so much fun!
From my last post about Dates, it sounds like most of you are big fans of dates. Me too! Both kinds.
1. Have you ever met up with another blogger? Who did you meet and what did you do?
2. Any meetups planned with anyone other bloggers or bloggers you’d love to meet?
To me, blogging has opened so many doors, including meeting so many wonderful people, both in real life, and virtually. And I consider my “virtual” friends just as real as anyone I’ve met in person. Sometimes even more so because we share so much and have so much in common.
3. Any weekend plans?
Me = this
Have a great weekend!
