I’ve come to find there are some strange things about blogging. One of them is when things in the blog world intersect the real world. For some reason the blog doesn’t exactly feel like real life. I have a few local readers (that I know about anyway) and one of them recently had us over for dinner. They are a great family whome we love hanging out with and I definitely cherish their invites since not many people have us over for food as I’ve talked about before. Anyway, when we arrived they handed me a “Gourmet Travel Survival Kit.” She had read my Fourth of July post where I had found myself on an island missing a few key ingredients and thoughtfully constructed this kit for future emergencies. Pretty darn cool huh? I hope you all have good friends too!
