you can exchange the gift if you want to
One of the best things about the world of blogging is the people you randomly "meet". You can start off at one blog and end up somewhere else (sometimes/often?) without knowing how you ever got there. You read a lil bit about what's going on in someone else's life and you get drawn in by the way they express themselves. You find their words or pictures strike a chord and so you check out their interests/favourite movies, music n books etc to learn a bit more. If they don't have a pic of themselves you begin to create your own vision/version of them in your head. You leave comments on their blog and they respond. You both reveal things about yourself that perhaps only close friends know. You sometimes question how your words will be interpreted. When they take a break from blogging you begin to wonder where they are and if they're okay. When they live in another state or another country you wonder if you'll ever meet in the flesh. And when they have a birthday you want to celebrate with them and wish them all the best for the year ahead. So... Happy Birthday Miss Litzi, let's put something naughty in the tea this year and drink to a happy future - have a wonderful day!
