Happy Birthday, Meg

This is a shot from a year ago of some seagulls relaxing just off Aaron's Beach.

Meg was one of the first bloggers I met in real life after several months of corresponding via the blogosphere. We were both vacationing down in Nags Head the same week and made plans to meet in person.

My father was so nervous about me going to the vacation home of "some stranger from the internet" that he came along with me to meet her, although at the time he said he just wanted to tag along for the heck of it. My sister, who was also on the trip, warned against posting any photos of us on the internet due to safety this and you never know that.

Now, you can't sign onto a blog or Facebook without shots of us donning crab hats or singing karaoke. My, how things have changed.

That was two years ago, and I am very happy to say that nothing but good things have come from our internet beginnings.

Meg, who has a very quick wit, never fails to put a smile on my face. She's also a very talented piano player and a gifted song writer, singer and karaoke-er. (It's a word.) You name it, she can do it, from whipping up a gourmet dinner to painting delicate designs on wine glasses.

Meg, may your day be filled with fun, laughter, friends and loved ones. And lots of Chevy's chips and salsa.

Have a happy, happy birthday.

p.s. Hop over to Meg's site and wish her a Happy Birthday. Tell her that Mrs. Harry Connick, Jr., sent you.

Chevy's chips and salsa are the bomb diggity!
And after a 5 hour car ride, Meg became Meg-a-licious!

Sending hugs your way.

Aw, gosh, thanks CBW! You know our friends at the beach thought I was NUTZ for inviting some "stranger from the internet" up to visit. I assured them it was going to be quick and you really only wanted to use me for our wifi so you could check your email anyway. :-)

Meeting the faces behind the blogs is the real joy of this blogging gig, isn't it?
