I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. One of my favorite parts about blogging is the wonderful other bloggers I’ve met and become friends with. There is so much that goes on behind the scenes of a blog and having the support of others who understand it and become friends is a blessing.
Joan is one of the wonderful bloggers I had the pleasure of meeting and becoming friend with over the last few years. She lived just 2 hours away from me, with Atlanta right in the middle. The first time I met her was for lunch with another blogger and it was immediately apparent the kind of presence she had. With a much more popular blog than my own, she was humble, super friendly and fun, and always willing to be as helpful as possible. Of course when she left, she got several pieces of cheesecake (we were at The Cheesecake Factory) to take home to her family so they could all try them. I knew right then she was my kind of woman and we were destined to be friends.
You may remember that back in April, I co-hosted a blogging retreat with some other bloggers. Joan was one of the bloggers that attended. Again, we had so much fun. If there’s one thing we shared, it was a big sweet tooth. I thought I’d be the only one drinking my sweet wines (since I only like things that are nice and sweet), but I found out that like me she liked sweet wines. I was happy to share. ?
Those are but a few small memories of a tremendous person with a big love for sweets, life and her family.
