if you didn't already know, tonya is my ultimate style blog crush. i mean, just look at her blog. and if you have a tumblr/pinterest, you've probably seen her. she's basically a celebrity, really. when kylee showed me her blog months and months ago, after the shock of finding an amazing blog that now felt like a gaping hole had been missing my whole life (okay, a slight exaggeration but still), i realized that she lived in spokane, washington. SPOKANE. if you didn't already know that idaho/eastern washington/the entire state of montana lacks all things cool (i.e. style bloggers), well i'm telling you, THEY DO. i have always felt isolated in this little blogging bubble so to learn there was a style blogger of such mass awesomeness, i freaked inside.
driving back to montana yesterday, i was able to somewhat spontaneously meet-up with tonya in coeur d' alene, idaho! i'll be honest, the first thought that went through my head when i met her was... holy crap. this girl is way too cool to hang out with me. i mean, you just have to look at her, really. the hair. the tights. the boots. i apparently have a tendency to burst out the 'holy crap you are so pretty/cute/gorgeous!' comments within two seconds of meeting a blogger as well. tonya is an absolute gem and i had a blast hanging out with her and her boyfriend. she is so so nice and genuinely adorable. also, to find out she is my age was pretty nifty, too. we had a lot to talk about and i just know we will find a way to meet up again.
i'm kind of becoming obsessed with blog meetups. is there anything better than meeting your blog crushes and distant bff's (lookin at you, ky!) from the internet in person!? NO.
also, the fact that i got to take pictures of this girl!? photographer's dream. cloud 9. sorry, i'll stop now tonya before you think i'm too much of a big creep...
p.s. blog meetups should consist of a mandatory "maggie talks A LOT" warning.
