Blog-life meets real-life

A few months ago I added the Casual Perfectionist to my Google Reader, and Momma put me on hers. While we don’t remember how we originally connected (it had something to do with BlogRush), we eventually discovered that we live within a few miles of each other.

So today we met for the first time, on a beautiful sunny day at a local playground. Tessa, Reed and Claire got along well, and we tired them all out (and they, us. My kids have become tree climbers, and I have become a nail-biter).

My sister, Tami, and her family, showed up, too. It was a lovely afternoon, and we plan to repeat it soon.

I hope Momma can report to her husband that I was neither deranged nor hormonal (in a 14-year old boy kind of way).

New discovery: AllTop.com.

AllTop helps you “explore your passions by collecting stories from all the top sites on the web,” and bills itself as a “digital magazine rack.”

There are pages like Politics.Alltop.com and Moms.AllTop.com and Books.AllTop.com. You know, mainstream stuff.

What’s cool is that yesterday it added, Adoption.AllTop.com. All parts of the adoption triad look well-represented: birth/firstparents, adoptees, and adoptive parents. This would be a good start if you’re looking for some adoption reading. Let them know if you’d like to add your blog.

  1. We had a great time!! Claire talked about you guys all the way home and then promptly slept like a log. Meeting cool people + A napping toddler = A very successful day! :)
