So, I never did finish my re-cap of Blissdom.
Its been hard in a way because of the awesomeness that was shoved into those short few days.
Its also been hard because I really connected with someone that is over 12 hours away.
It all started while texting my friend Issa about a week before I was set to leave. She wasn’t going to be there, but wanted me to be able to hug someone that she knew and that way it was like hugging me. (or something like that)
Twitter helped us weed out those who weren’t going and finally we found someone she knew, she had hugged before, and was going to be there.
I DM’ed her my number and we decided that we should get together at some point over the weekend.
On Thursday night, during the Opening Cocktail party, I got a text.
“I am at the front door, where are you?”
“On my way.”
I get to the entrance to the Jack Daniel’s Saloon and there were a few ladies there. I thought “Shit, I am not sure who Bridget is and….”
Before I finished that thought she pipes up in the cutest southern accent “Heather?”
And soon there were hugs!
We met up again at the Bubbles and Bits party hosted by the Clever Girls-it was great.
I was talking to her about cameras and we escaped the noise of the (awesome) party and chatted out on the balcony of the pink mansion.
We agreed on so many points, even though our lives are so vastly different, in some points they were the same.
We walked around later taking photos, enjoying each other’s company….it went on like that all weekend.
On Saturday when I woke up in a flare up and I just wanted to walk around to take pictures, she went with me. Even though there was more silence, it wasn’t awkward. It was comfortable.
We met up on Sunday morning so we could say good-bye. It sucked that she was traveling just about as far south as I was traveling north.
Briget is someone that would make me a better person by me being around her. She would make me more accountable but in a loving and caring way. I could see us meeting for Diet Cokes (since she doesn’t do coffee) in the afternoons.
