One of my favorite bloggers and someone I consider a friend, although I have never met her in person, is hanging up her blogging hat.
One of the first blogs I discovered in the summer of 2005 and immediately identified with was R*Belle’s blog, Musings of a Former Jr. League Dropout (now called Southern and Sublime). I was drawn to the humorous title of the blog and the fun juxtaposition of the beauty queen holding a can of cheap beer that greeted you when you clicked on her blog. I knew the woman behind such a fun blog had to have a great sense of humor. Like me, she is a mom to two little ones and works outside the home. I could relate to so many of the things she wrote with such wit and sass that I really felt like I was sitting at a table with a girlfriend and talking over a glass of sweet tea or a margarita. In fact, one of the first times she commented on my blog she mentioned that, should our paths ever cross, we should meet up for margaritas.
R*Belle, your blog will be missed! And I still hope to join you for that margarita.
