Despite the population of my fair city (nearly 72,000), I'm evidently not living anywhere near the clever legions of bloggers meeting up hither and thither and making real friendships around the globe. They are apparently all running around having fun lunches, meeting for kidless, husbandless drinks, and making new friends at kid birthday parties.
Clearly, I haven't properly sold you on the joys and beauties to behold in Bellingham.
First, where is Bellingham, WA?
Bellingham is only an hour South of the Canadian Border (only 90 minutes from cosmopolitand & exciting Vancouver, British Columbia). And 90 minutes North of trendy and PC Seattle (you know, the place with the grunge music and pretty skyline).
Second, what does a person do for fun in Bellingham?
Our visitor's bureau says it best:
"We are known for our friendly people, authentic communities, cultural attractions and a clean environment. Adventures from the relaxing to the exhilarating are yours, all in a setting of stunning beauty."
You read it here. Adventures. Relaxing AND exhilarating.
And if sailboats and gorgeous lakes, rivers, and mountains aren't your thing, how about fabulous local music?
Prefer drinks overlooking the gorgeous bay? How about this?
Or, there's always hippie watching in our gorgeous Fairhaven District.
Bellingham + CrankMama = FUNNNNNNN
Barring this, perhaps we can meet at Blogher 07 (the one in Chicago).
P.S. Emma is coming to see me in January -- woo hoo!!
