Some things about Sophia:
According to my Top Commenter widget she is the #1 commenter on That Wife
She is one of my favorite readers
I’ve told TH many times that I think she’s brilliant and I can’t understand why she’s still reading my silly ramblings after all this time
Her comments are some of my favorites, always relevant, always detailed, and always incredibly logical
She has commented on this blog over 500 times
Sophia is not her real name, but even when we met in person I still called her that. It confused TH and he kept asking her if we should call her Cortney (her actual name) but I think she knows that by now she will always be Sophia to me!
You can find her very first comment on this post
She used to live in Dallas and we met for the first time right after T1 arrived
She just spent a week in Chicago so we were able to meet in person again this past aweek
I liked taking pictures of her pretty smile and naturally curly hair (yes her hair just “does” that without any work on her part)
This is her blog
The two photos above were taken in my new apartment! The light is just amazing, but the color is a bit wonky so I need to get a gray card.
The photos below were taken in this super special (somewhat secret) garden that’s right outside my building and only accessible to residents. I suspect several of my Chicago photo shoots will take place here.
Not that I wouldn’t love to meet all of you, but frequent, long-time commenters definitely hold a special place in my heart. Some of you have been reading and contributing for an impressively long time, and even if you don’t have blogs of your own, I feel like I’ve been able to get to know you (through your many many many comments).
The more time I spend on this blog, the more my e-friends become just as important to me as my IRL friends. When I was a crying, sobbing mess due to problems with breastfeeding who did I get in touch with? An e-friend who had a baby boy just a few months before I did. Her emails and IMs meant so much to me and without this lovely little blog of mine I never would have made that connection.
I’m getting all emotional and teary-eyed as I write this. 3 years ago I never could have guessed at the ways blogging would change and shape my life. I feel like we’re all in a big blogging sorority together and I just love you ladies (and the few guys who are reading-I love you too!)
