Annapolis with Leah

It is harder than you might imagine to make new friends as you get older. No new jobs to meet people through. Your town has the same people save maybe a new neighbor or two. Fellow parents may not be your age or have the same interests. And the organizations you belong to can be of the been there, done that variety.

I was thrilled beyond words when I discovered that there was someone in my same artsy creative circles online who lived within an hour of me. In fact there were several women who I reached out to and began to meet up with. When I met my gal Leah, as well as my new friend Sarah, we all sighed with relief. We were all the same sort of oddly creative whacky people and were already friends from our connection online. We are all uber-creatives who really need an offline connection.

I met Leah for the first time at the Walters Art Gallery in Baltimore back in March. We just hit it off. We are from similar backgrounds and the same age and rather at the same place in figuring out what to do with our talented selves.

This next time we met up in Annapolis. What bloody fun that was! We ended up walking in the rain and just didn’t care. And going on an impromptu photo safari around the beautiful historical capital area of downtown. Wow. And of course, non-stop talking. So so much fun.

    Love all of these photos! Especially the sunflower.
    I know exactly what you speak of and strangely enough, I’ve made a few really wonderful friends in the last few years. Unexpected but precious. Then there are all you blog/twitter lovelies.
    Keep striving. I think you’ve got it! xo

      I would never have imagined that any of the relationships I made online would have been this positive Jennifer. I stayed away from all this for so long. And it seems so strange now that I know what I know. Have you ever been to Annapolis? I’ve been to Boston and New York only once each. Love me some historical old cities. Philly needs more tromping about too. I’m hoping to meet you in any of these places so we can be official too.
      Love,
      Shalagh
