Almost exactly two years ago, I hosted a potluck at (what was then) my studio space. It was the first time that I really got to hang out with a crew of people that I had met on twitter including (among other dear friends) Satsuki, Victoria, Peggy, Jessica, Jennifer, and Dabito. For most of us, it was our first time meeting IRL.
Two years later so much has happened–I got married to Jason (who was DJ’ing that potluck), I had little Ida, and from that potluck, so many of us have become true friends. You all inspire me, make me laugh, ‘get’ my crazy designer/blogger jokes and muses and are just a blast to hang out with–I am truly grateful for our chance meeting, for twitter, for this community that we have created and how it has seamlessly flowed from online ‘friends’ to real live homies. I don’t think it is ever easy to build real relationships and make new friends, and I am so very grateful.
These photos are from a little visit that Victoria, Ida and I made to Satsuki’s house yesterday. It occurred to us on the drive over that it was kinda our two year ‘anniversary’ <3
Have you met people online that have become your true friends? How great is it?
