Friends across ward boundaries

I was thinking today as I was reading some of my favorite blogs - wouldn't it be fun to live in the same ward as http://groundhogdaywithceliafae.blogspot.com/ and http://denaeharlow.blogspot.com/ or http://jenibelle.blogspot.com/ (I wish I knew how to do that linking thing where the name shows up - plus I'm not sure about blog etiquette when linking to another blog - oh blogging babes teach me of your ways.) I'd have to live in their ward to really be their friend - it's hard to have good friends outside the ward boundaries. I know the aforementioned bloggers live only minutes away from me but if we're not in the same ward and especially the same stake our paths just don't cross. So I'll have to settle for stalking their blogs. I probably know more about their lives than some of my dear friends....

Thank goodness some of my dear friends have blogs - for example, http://bonsblogbydesign.blogspot.com/ and http://thegatchellfamily.blogspot.com/ - I could go on and on. So with my blogging, real life friends I have the best of both worlds!

I love blogging for so many reasons but there's nothing like sitting with friends face to face. The more I learn about people through their blogs the more I wish we were neighbors.

Blogging is just the best, isn't it? I love to read yours too. I have been wanting to write a response to your one on stay at home moms which I really loved, by the way. Times gets away but it is on the back burner. Hope Steven is better. Are we planning a reunion of our group tomorrow? I hope so! It has been way too long!

Please move to my ward. We could all be best friends forever.

I do love the ward blogging. I feel like I know people on a completely different level.

Thanks for the linkage!
