One of the greatest gifts I have received from blogging is the friendships I have made with other bloggers. I know there are skeptics out there that think those of us behind the computer screen must be a bunch of crazies :) and how could you meet people from online and form friendships?
But it has happened and I have MANY friends that have encouraged me and walked with me through both good and difficult times. Friends that leave comments or send e-mails and texts. Some of these beautiful women I have met in real life and others we haven't had the chance yet.
My friends over at (in)courage have seen how so many of us have connected online and want to encourage us to get together on a set weekend and have (in)RL meetups!
In their words:
Yup, we're bringing the beach house to you with the goal of connecting women beyond the blog post! How? Well, with a day of (in)courage meetups - think mini beach house parties - all around the country and globe and a webcast for everyone to tune into. A local meetup on a global scale; friends will gather to watch live webcasts of (in)courage contributors and community, connect with one another, and discover new friendships they didn't know were right around the corner!
There will be something for everyone - walking, talking, laughing, hugging blog content - right in the comfort of your living room. The webcast kicks off on Friday, April 27 and (in)RL beach house parties follow on Saturday, April 28 with more live (in)courage content to tune into together. Just imagine thousands of (in)courage women all over the world getting together in homes, coffee shops, restaurants, or churches - you name it- to connect in real life!

How fun right?
This is a chance for us to finally step out from behind the comfort of the computer and get to know each other on a deeper level.
To sign up for a "meetup" in your area just click here. The cost is just $10 and you get a t-shirt and a pack of cards from DaySpring and access to the web event.
I have signed up and am willing to have a group meet here for the day on Saturday April 28th...if anyone is interested?! I would love to spend the day encouraging one another and being encouraged as well!

And if not this "event" - please consider finding a way to reach out and "meet" someone new in your area - you never know what friendships you might make if you do!!
