anyway, i'm sure i've mentioned her before but tracy of shutterbean is great. she has a great blog and she and joy the baker teach and do podcasts together, which is awesome. if you don't already know, check them out, you'll fall in love. tracy shutterbean does an "i love lists" friday, which is a great idea, and on one of those lists she posted a NYTimes article about making friends after 30. oddly enough, with this new job at Silver Lake Farms, i've found myself forging new friendships. when i sent the intial email asking a fellow gardener if she wanted to hang out, i felt like i was asking her out on a date! i even told my mom that's what i felt and she was like - just do it, jordan. the two of us have joked about it and are even sillily approaching our communication as if we are in those awkward "first date" scenarios. i find it amusing and i think she does too, but what's even better is that we're both aware that it is hard to make friends and when you like someone and think you can be friends you just have to make the move.
