The talented and oh-so lovely Natalie stayed with us, too quickly, over the weekend. I got to take her for burgers and then we talked until 1am about friends, our kids, the internet, good husbands, marathons, Matt Damon, and so much more. She's a breath of fresh, talented, intelligent air, and there's no better way I can think to describe her.
Sunday morning, she generously snapped some photos of Kyle and me (she owns and runs Hazeled Photography), including this photo. She captured my boy, just perfectly.
Kyle took to Natalie right away and while I showered Sunday morning, he told her everything she needed to know about Cars and puzzles and his favorite books. As she was leaving, she told him about her family: her girls, her dog, her cats. "Oh, your cats will love me," he said, nodding confidently.
You don't need a high Klout score or sponsored posts or an invite to some mega-exclusive retreat to win at blogging. You just need to meet someone like Natalie.
