You guys have heard me gush about Crystal on here before - she only lives a few hours from me and we first met up in real life about a year and half ago. And she is awesome - she recently raised a TON of mony for tornado victims in AL with All 4 Alabama, which was a huge success. And I count her among my personal best friends ever. Her blog is Life, Love, and Literature.
I also got to meet Heather, of See Heather Right, about a year ago. She is also amazing and she went with me and Crystal and two other Nesties to DBF last year. I haven't had a chance to see her in many months and I cannot wait to hang out with her again.
Also, remember how I'm always gushing about Jacki at Lovely Little Shelf? She's coming! I'm so excited that we're finally going to get to meet in real life - her blog is one of my all time favorites. I actually tried like six times to nominate her for a Book Bloggers Appreciation Week award and could never get the nomination form to work. Sorry Jacki - but I really did try and more than once!
Another favorite blogger is Jennie at Life Is Short, Read Fast. Jennie just redid her home library with her books organized by color and it looks amazing - obviously great minds think alike (Jacki's are also organized by color in case you were wondering - we're all cool like that). Also Jennie and Jacki both are from the midwest and I can't wait to hear them say "pop" instead of "coke". And force feed them real grits (I mean what? No, I'd never...)
Tameka (Imperfection Is The New Pink) is another awesome blogger I'll get to meet for the first time and a Nestie friend from way back. We haven't met yet, but guys Tameka just makes me happy. I feel like she radiates happiness - when I was thinking of how to describe her on here it's the first word that came to mind. Also, she sent me Zombies vs. Unicorns AND Anna and the French Kiss - what's not to love?
And, the cherry on the pie of my DBF experience is that Ashley from That's Life is coming. All the way from Canada. What? I know. I'm not sure what Canadians say for coke, but I totally intend to find out. Ashley is another NBC friend I've "known" online for several years and she's one of the sweetest, most real people I know.
So there you have it. Who I'm going to DBF with - in my post-DBF summaries I'll be linking up to them again and of course posting tons of pictures (if I'm not having too much fun to take them).
