(Almost) Wordless Wednesday: My Blogger Buddy

The Puzzled Palate blog was launched due to the persistence of a good friend of mine. Lindsey from Redhead Baby Mama, was a friend first and a blogging buddy second! Our hubbies have been best friends since they were in HS together. Her hubs is M's godfather and my hubby is her son's godfather. 

I am lucky that she was willing to drag me by my hair convince me to share our story online. I have learned more about gluten-free living. I have "met" multitudes of supportive readers. I have found out that we are not alone in our journey with Aspergers. For all of those things, thank you Lindsey.

Because it is what we do... #BloggerBuddies

    I think it would be a lot of fun to have someone to blog with, especially since you obviously already get along so well.

    I'm so jealous you have a blogging buddy so close by. I can't seem to find anyone close enough to me to really build a relationship with, although it sounds like you knew each other well before your blogs were born.
