A Date with Donk

Sweaty palms, flutterby stomach, and a racing brain. That's how I felt on the eve of meeting the author of one of my favorite blogs. Yes, I did that. I met someone who I've spied on for more than a year. What a surreal experience, but rather common place in today's age of technology and social networking. But for me, a first-timer to this sort of meeting, it was a bit like going on a blind date. Except for the part where I'm already married, and I was meeting a girl -- and neither of us date girls, not that there's anything wrong with that.

As soon as I saw her smiling face, however, I knew I was in for a great night of fabric admiring and salty drinks. May I recommend that you read her blog, too. That is, if you like reading well-written musings from a normal everyday gal who is spiritual, creative, and aims to do good in the world. She was everything her blog was -- and more.

Leaving the evening I felt renewed in my creativity, inspired in my willingness to try new things, and excited to have checked one more thing off my list... meet new people.

Thank you Donk.
Your admirer and fan... denverbrunette.

PS -- Donk is the author of (also known as Kelli). And is the Donk in Finny and Donk's Sew Along.

How fun! That's how I met her too! We had a mutual friend from college, and after reading her blog for a while we finally met in person. She's so much fun!
