Last Saturday around noon, four ladies arrived at my doorstep for a day in the country: Dana, Giulia, Nicola and Susanne. All of them internet aquaintances; two of them I knew already, two of them I didn´t. Here´s the thing about virtual friends though: There´s always an instant connection in real life. The idea of this weekend was to harvest, cook and eat together - and take pictures, of course. Because that´s what ladies from the internet do, as illustrated above.
I think I can safely say that we all had a great time. I love when people enjoy the space we have created here in our little corner of the world. I know how we live is different and sadly, "different" is rarely popular with the masses. That´s one of the reasons I blog: You probably come here because you enjoy what we do and how we live. The blog gives me a sense of community that sometimes is missing in real life. And when I get to meet some of you kind people in real life? That´s even better!
Funnily enough, even though at some point I had pitched this weekend as a "photography workshop", I took the fantastic amount of 13 pictures. I enjoyed it all too much to pick up my camera. And thankfully, I had some very talented photographers by my side who took way better pictures than I ever could. Case in point: Nicola´s recap (with a new favorite pic of me - I made them take photos of me with rhubarb because I always wanted a picture of me with rhubarb. It´s probably a very Kinfolkish thing to do, but I don´t mind).
I´ll update this post with links if and when my fellow weekenders post more pictures (NO PRESSURE). Thank you again ladies for coming here, I can´t wait for our next meet-up in autumn!
