Introducing a new friend

It might not jump right out at you, but there's a new name on the blogroll. "The Accidental Chef" is a lovely blog I discovered while seeking out more information about Venice, Italy. And as I read more and more of her posts, I noted that its author and I had much in common.

She loves Venice. I love Venice. She's got dogs. I've got dogs (well, one now.) She lives in Los Angeles. I live in Los Angeles. She likes to hike in the Santa Monica Mountains. I like to hike in the Santa Monica Mountains. She's an older woman. I'm an older woman.

We corresponded some and discovered another thing we have in common - we both live in Topanga! This afternoon we met for a lovely lunch in our funky Topanga village center at the Waterlily Cafe.

Go visit her blog and enjoy!

Um. She closed her blog. I did visit her at Compari & Sofa though. :-)

I think she's doing something new...we spoke about it at lunch.

Well, now I will have to edit!!!

She's a lovely person and whatever she's planning to do next will be worth reading!

It is a small world after all.

Really small.

How fun! Will have to return to make time to visit. I've already overstayed my time limit on the computer. Too much to do today!

It's really nice to get to meet up with your online peers in reality.

That reminds me, it's been a while since I've had a beer with N__B.
