this internet stuff. and the people i meet. is overwhelming at times. some people in my life don't get it. and that is because they have never expereienced the connections you can make over the world wide web. and how those connections can turn into friendships. sincere ones. filled with many commonalities.
i have a handful of good friends. great friends. that i have met in person. all because of this little blog. i've met them in japan. in calgary. in toronto. in vancouver. and in victoria. and i get to meet another new friend this weekend. right here in calgary. yay! (hi ali.)
well. one of my dearest friends lives in denmark. (hi ruut.) we were lucky enough to meet up in japan a few years ago when she was there on a holiday. we had arranged a little swap recently. because i love most things danish. and everything she creates. my gosh. i got the parcel last week. and was blown away. totally overwhelmed by her talent. and her generosity. handknit treasures. sewn goodies. fabric treats. the best little sleeper. and some hand-me-down onesies from her baby girl. i am in love with everything she sent. for sure. but the hand-me-downs are extra special. (ani-chan is wearing one in the photo above.) because everytime she wears one of them we will be constantly thinking of little keina-chan. who definitely needs a few little prayers these days.
i love you, internet. for introducing me to my blog friends.
