A few weeks ago I discussed the perks of blogging, with the gift of friendship being one of them. Shortly after Blog Week, I got an email from Erika Sartain of Erika's Tea Cup. She was incredibly kind and personable. As we started to exchange emails, it felt quite natural—as though I was writing to a dear friend. Erika is a fellow military spouse, so we began discussing the nuances of this lifestyle, among a handful of other random topics. I feel incredibly blessed to have connected with her. I just had to ask her to be a part of this series, because I know you'll adore her!
