When we entered, I asked the hostess to sit us at her table, even though she was serving a large group in a private room that day. We had to wait a bit, but she came around the corner and I said "Inanna?" and she said "Kenju!", so we were on our way to getting acquainted. As usual, when I meet other bloggers, I feel as though I already know them, and Inanna was no exception. She's very pretty (even with no makeup and hair in a ponytail). She was able to find a few minutes here and there to drop back to our table and chat, but of course, it wasn't enough time. It never is.
I had started reading her posts several years ago; mostly because she came from an area I know well. I stayed to read about the angst created by her divorce, since my daughter was going through much the same thing at the time. Recently, she has written about the fire that burned her home and everything in it, including her beloved cats. They were not easy posts to read, but knowing what someone goes through in that horrible situation can be invaluable, especially when someone you know has a fire later on.
Inanna, it was great fun to meet you (my 9th blogger!) and I was happy to be your 21st!
