The summer is here!  Well, the official first day of Summer is June, 21st however, it is the month of June and the sun has been shining for 7 consecutive days here in Portland, OR , so voila!  Summer!  (We take what we can get here in the Pacific Northwest.)  I know that Tropical Storm Andrea is pounding the East Coast so let's try to bring some happiness - and dry thoughts to the East Coast - and start our Virtual Girls Night Out!  For this Friday night blog hopping party all you need to make this party complete is grab a beverage of your choice (cocktail recipe below for inspiration) and your fuzzy slippers!  I started this blog party in 2008 and bloggers have been virtually partying ever since.  All You Do To participate In The Virtual GNO:  Link up your blog below and visit your fellow party guests - say "Happy VGNO!!!"  Share the blog game/meme on your site to play along.

    1. Tee hee.

      I've missed you too Robin! I'm getting myself together and connecting the way I should. (This is called "social" media after all, right?)

    1. Hi Louise, thank you so much for being here!

      The Virtual Girls Night Out is a party on a blog, where you leave your blog link, and then other "guests" will visit your blog and comment with a "Happy Virtual GNO!" If you choose to create a party on your blog, like Martha did, that's up to you. Really it's just about visiting the party hub (aka - my blog on a Friday night) then leaving your blog URL in the link up.

      You've reminded me that, even though this party has been happening since 2008, I need to share more about what the Virtual GNO is all about. Thank you lovely Louise :->

    2. Remind me next Friday and I'll join in Anne :)

  4. I needed this! I am so looking to meet more friendly bloggers! I'm going to run over and put this on my blog, craftcravings.com and then add the link!

    1. Your Red Velvet cake batter looks dangerous ;-> I bet my girls will love it!

      Thanks for playing this weekend Heather!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I hope you enjoyed your visit.
