It is said that there are certain people that are connectors, people that join others together...
Ina is a connector. I would have to say that most of us that read her blog now read each others. A wide and varied group are we!
There are certain themes that resonate, interests that we share. Because memes are so popular with bloggers and on facebook I thought I would do a 25 things I know about Ina. if I leave anything out, please let me know.
Here goes:
  1. LOVES, no really loves dogs, especially hers!
  2. LOVES, seriously loves her husband and family.
  3. Has purple streaks in her hair.
  4. Is from new Jersey.
  5. Looks at licence plates...a lot.
  6. Loves shoes.
  7. Has champagne EVERY Thursday.
  8. Has a wonderful neighbor named Joan.
  9. believes passionately in animal rescue.
  10. has some Italian roots.
  11. Works in her husband's law office.
  12. An avid tennis player.
  13. An avid Yankee fan, no make that passionate!
  14. Changes her header picture on her blog more frequently than anyone I know!
  15. She is a reader.
  16. She is a traveler.
  17. She is close to her family in NJ.
  18. She is a creative cook and hostess.
  19. She is a thoughtful and supportive member of the blogging community.
  20. She has expensive taste. ( you know what I mean INA!)
  21. She loves UGGS.
  22. She reads the NYtimes every Sunday.
  23. She introduced us to Snowzilla, pictured above.
  24. She is becoming an accomplished photographer.
  25. She was not a Sarah Palin fan!  
  26.  **I can't believe I didn't include this from the beginning cuz not everyone would know this-unless you read her blog.  INA BLOGS FROM ALASKA!!!
Most of all, what I really know about Ina, (without ever meeting her in person) is that she is a loyal, supportive, curious, interesting, funny, gutsy, and adventurous friend. 
She is someone that I want in my book group, to go on a road trip with, shop, and have a drink with!
I think if you read her blog you know what I am talking about and if you don't...

Read her blog and you will be like me and consider  Ina a true friend!

Oh Wow, Preppy, I am sincerely impressed at how accurately you have described me! I love people and am indeed a people person! I am thankful to have met this amazing circle of friends from all parts of the globe and enjoy my DAILY visits with all of you. I change my header to keep it fresh and show off parts of my world... I'll add a couple more to the list....

!. I love the Jersey Shore and get back there at least 2 times each year
2. In addition to my spendy tastes, I also love a deal and have found many unworn bargains (not that hat) at resale consignment shops
3. My wish would be to gather all of you together for an in-person visit and a glass of bubbly with Joan.....
4. Love to play games!!

(I love that picture of me and Snowzilla!)

Thanks Preppy! I am glad to be your friend and look forward to meeting you this year! xoxo
