Long Distance Friendship

So I'm not entirely comfortable being in front of the camera. And I'm also not a huge fan of the color pink. But here I am, getting my photo taken in some bright pink shades. You know why? Friendship. Are you confused?
Back in April I attended a blog conference in Arizona where I met some fly bitches. Yes, bitches. (We are that tight so I can call them that.) While I was so thankful to have met them, it was like, dang we live literally all over the country so seeing each other will be hard.



The lovely Illy, came up with the idea of The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Sunglasses. She wore them over on the east coast. Then passed them on to Leo, who took them all the way to Ireland!

I took them to the west coast, gracing the edge of the Pacific Ocean. So they have now been coast to coast and even international! Their next stop is up north to Seattle to visit Erika. (I actually get to give them to her in person because she is coming to San Diego next weekend and we're going to have a little blogger party!) Be sure to follow them along!
It's pretty crazy to think of my friendship with these girls. It never would've happened if I hadn't started blogging. What a good decision that was, huh? ;]

  1. You look SO pretty, Julie and I love this story. :D Such an excellent idea! I know exactly what you mean... I've made some really, truly awesome friends who live all over the place, but yet we chat and it's like we're in the same room!

  4. Agree wholeheartedly about the friendships made via blogging! Could not have coped recently without the back-up of those I've met while blogging. Love the idea of travelling sunglasses: just hope international (as well as intra-national) postal services don't trash them en route! Good luck to the glasses (as well as the wearers!) Maybe you folks might like to visit me at www.ColdhamCuddliescalling.blogspot.com? Would love to have you follow me, comment and then may be made even more friends? Look forward to it!

    I absolutely love the fact that these bad boys have been to the east coast, the faaaar east coast (ireland) and now west coooast!

    It is so fun seeing you rock these bad boys! I'm all like "oh hey, I wore those not that long ago!"

  13. You look great, must have had a great photographer ;) That is such a cool idea, passing the sunglasses around. (I am so jealous you were at the beach...I miss the coast!)
    The new layout looks great btw

  16. How cool! I've always wanted to do something like that...but never had an idea on what item to use. I actually have a pair of sunglasses EXACTLY like that, only they are electric blue. They're not my favorite (and I look like a total hipster when wearing them), but I still kind of like them. Anyway, the new blog layout looks fantastic! I enjoy the two-column approach much better, and I really enjoy that your photos are now larger. How clean and nice looking! Good job. :)
