Blogger Meet Up!

It's funny how life plays out sometimes. Last year I posted a picture of being on Harsen's Island, somewhere I've spent many beautiful summers. A blogger I followed named Nicole then commented that she spent her summers there as well! And she currently lived all the way in Tennessee.
What a small world!
Time had passed, and I continued to follow along with Nicole's blogging adventures. Then about a month ago I received a message from Nicole that she would be spending August on the island and wanted to do a blogger meet up. So after many emails over dates and creative ideas, Em and I headed to Harsen's!
We sat off the lake at her parent's beautiful cottage and talked hobbies, work, blogging, and social media. Nicole is a sweet, talented, and hilarious blogger who also runs her own successful web and graphic design business! She spends her winters in Tennessee, and summers on Harsen's with her lovely parents, husband, and the most photogenic cats I've ever seen. Her and her neighbors call themselves the Harsen's Island Social Club, and together they chat, watch for freighters, and enjoy neighborhood cookouts! She started the tradition of designing a yearly Sili Pint for everyone in the club, and was so sweet to give Emily and I two of our own. She also loves biking, barr, yoga, traveling, and blogging as a Schwinn ambassador! She recently even went to a Schwinn getaway in Nantucket! After chatting, we then spent hours playing dress up, posing, pretending to laugh for photos, and then would burst out in actual laughter over how silly we felt! 
My face hurt from smiling by the end of the day.
All in all I'm so very happy to have gotten the chance to meet up. Thank you to Nicole and your family for welcoming us into your home, and for a wonderful time! We can't wait to see you again next summer!

Check out Nicole on her Insta, Blog, and website!
