And we’re off…

On another adventure. 

Benjamin and I are flying out this morning to see these two trouble makers.

Kristin, who writes the stirring blog Better Now, and her son Nolan are waiting for us in Vancouver. I’m not sure what Kristin has planned but yesterday I got an e-mail about a zip line over a canyon and was told to bring a little dress (not for the Canyon but for our night out).

I hate leaving you all hanging about the Bear but I promise this one is worth the wait. He’s not shy. He also understands this blog and says it’s one of the main reasons he digs me so much. He can appreciate the blood, sweat and tears I’ve poured into this little corner of the blogosphere.

What does this mean for you? It means you’ll be meeting the Bear via video (yes, video) and you’ll also be enjoying new features on my blog like that photo gallery there to the right. He set it up for me. Gotta love the nerds. 

The necklace is on the way. I should have it in my hands when I get back on Tuesday. Prepare to be stunned.

I just love that picture of them! And his blonde hair! Too cute!

Enjoy your trip! Can't wait to hear more about The Bear! He totally needs to share some tips with us on all these great changes he's making to your blog!

Have a great trip!

re: Bear & The Blog….It can be helpful to have a "blog policy" outlined ahead of time agreeing which things you'll discuss on the blog and what will truly "stay at home". Just consider it. It provides a handy reference and something to rely on. Just like best friends starting a business together do best with a contract, it simplifies things.

$.02 from a guy who didn't have a blog policy before and may, possibly, perhaps, have ended up with burnt fingers because of it. =)

Ugh! So close to Seattle! Have fun in Beautiful Van. Hope it gets a little warmer for you. Next time, maybe you can plan a little road trip south. Or fly into Seattle…
