I arrived at Emily’s cottage-like home in Menlo Park, CA, not really knowing what to expect. Em and I had cultivated a pretty ferocious online friendship through our respective blogs, but hadn’t met in person until this point. This is the life of blogging. It’s much like blind dating. I stood at her front stoop and knocked. She answered. She invited me inside and promptly handed me a watermelon mimosa. Okay. I think we just became best friends. It doesn’t take much. As we walked through her living room, the smell of bacon and sweet potatoes wafting in from the kitchen, I promptly decided: I like it here.
