Finding A New Friend

A few months ago, I received an email from someone who had found my blog while doing research on Latina bloggers.

She read my experiences and realized that we had a lot in common. So she reached out and contacted me. I contacted her back and became Facebook friends and then decided to meet.

On Tuesday, we met for the first time. I know that might sound weird to some people and very normal to others. It is still strange to me but I have met so many of the friends I made online in real life so it is becoming the new normal.

We went and had lunch and stayed in the restaurant for over 4 hours just talking. It wasn't until we got the hairy eyeball that we realized that we had been there so long.

My new friend, Lizzy, was great. We had a ton of stuff in common. We both were born in L.A., lived in Miami and Palm Beach County and now we are Latinas living in the middle of nowhere. We were even dressed alike, which was a little freaky.

I am a believer that we always meet who we are supposed to. I am glad she reached out and now I have a friend somewhat close by. We actually live about 2 hours away but it is close enough that we can meet and have lunch.

I am glad I finally was able to meet her and, hopefully, we will be friends for a long time.
