After weeks of tweeting our excitement, I finally met up with a handful of fabulous DMV bloggers on Sunday.
First, I was kind of nervous... so nervous, in fact, that I messed up the white balance on almost every photo I took. Let me tell you, trying to fix white balance stinks! Sorry if the picture quality is a little off on this post.
Second, these girls are incredible!
I got to sit by Lauren who happens to be reviewing all the wineries in Virginia. Sounds like a plan for our next meet up, right? ;)
Karin (pictured above on the right) is pretty much the sweetest - I am so glad that she decided to come. Her blog is filled with lovely photos of Virginia and delicious-looking food.
As soon as Becky walked in, she and Tessica hit it off. All of their similarities are crazy! Check out their blogs to find out more.
At one point the conversation turn to what else - blogging. It was incredible to hear everyone's blogging story, especially Rachel, who is now self-employed and following her dreams. (I swear, bloggers are the coolest people.)
We ate at Le Pain Quotidien in Old Town and after taking a while to decide on what to order, lots of delicious food and coffee were served to our (slightly cramped) table. ;)

Sarah (on the right) is probably the one out of the group I have "known" the longest (this was our first time meeting in person). She and Becky were the main reason the brunch happened. They are both such sweet people, and their personalities were exactly how they come across in their blogs.
And this Sarah is the newest DMV blogger! We found each other through Amy, and I am so happy Sarah started blogging. :)
(side note: I am now hiring Lisa to do all my shopping. How cute does she look?? Her blog is definitely one of my style inspiration spots. She was a great sport and let me photograph her with my special guest. I also completely bear hugged her when she walked in, but I really felt like I knew her already.)
I told the girls that when I first started blogging I was sad that I didn't live in California or Arizona because that's where I thought all the bloggers were.
When I really started looking, though, I found tons in my area! I hope maybe this will inspire you to find people in your town and to start building a little blogging community there.
That is all.
