An Introduction

It's not every day that I do this, but I wanted to introduce you all to a new friend of mine.

She lives in Stamford, CT and she and her husband are very close friends with some dear local friends of ours.

Our friends have had many special occasions over the last couple of years - we met at A's 30th birthday party. Then there was A & M's wedding. Then came adorable baby girl E a few months ago, M turned 30 and there was another party . . . well, you get the point.

Each time I've been at an event with Julie I've had a great time chatting with her and learning more about her. She has a great memory, and never forgets to ask how my back is feeling or how MH is. She's caring and fun, and we have a good amount in common (including the fact that both of our hubbies are accountants). I wish we lived closer to each other, because I'm pretty sure if she did, we'd hang out a lot.

Anyways, I had no idea Julie was reading my blog, but she was.

And she recently started one of her own.

And I have no idea why (Julie, I am quite humbled), but she credits me with being one of the reasons she decided to take the plunge into the blogosphere.

And regardless of her reasons, I will take them - her blog is fantastic!

You know those people who just get blogging from the minute they start?

That's Julie.

I find her blog especially refreshing because it's from a different perspective - she is not a mom yet (although I have a pretty strong hunch that the more she visits baby E, the sooner she may want one!).

She is also intelligent, witty, and a great writer, and I look forward to checking her out every day to hear about what's on her mind.

Go check Julie out at Trials and Tribulations (her blog name is perfect - she's a lawyer!) and leave her some comment love.

And of course, tell her I sent you.

I promise you won't be disappointed . . . do I ever disappoint?

On second thought, don't answer that.

Oh yeah, Julie and I go way back. She's one of my 15 followers! ; ) And now I am one of hers!

Seriously, that's so cool that she found inspiration from you and sounds like it's mutual!

Thanks Rach, she's one of my followers too. And my aunt found her blog, by stalking my followers, and she says Julie is hilarious! I've bene over there a few times, but I haven't been finding time to comment lately. I will be sure to do that.
