I never would have thought last April that that random family I met at the Hard Rock Cafe would end up becoming such good friends... I never would have imagined that I'd read someone's blog daily, not to mention start one of my own...
And now Cecelia, the grandma of sweet Katya (in the middle, between my Katya and Natalia) and my mom have become friends. My mom and her friend Diane met up with Cecelia at The Publick House for dinner a few days ago--and that was the first time they actually met. Ohhh.... meeting people on the internet??! My mom might even be able to get a dachshund puppy from one of their family members! Aren't friends grand?!
The grandmas are already planning our much larger Moscow-Michigan reunion that will take place in New York this summer. We can't wait to see Rachael and Katya and to meet the rest of the family! It's odd to follow someone's life so closely through a blog, yet to have never actually met them... Rachael and Katya left Moscow and then magically reappeared to us in "blogland" through daily updates--and the rest of the family popped right in.
How I wish I could somehow pop up in the real lives of many of you blog friends I've never actually met... It would be wonderful to visit Niger or Kenya, Dina and Garnet!
