This year, BVN put a call out to all her member bloggers and vloggers to take part in a Collaboration Challenge. Being someone who struggles to get off her platform and meet new people, I signed up for it. I had no clue who I would be paired up with and honestly, as nerve wracking as that can be for me, it was also a big part of the excitement in taking part in this challenge.
When I received my notecard with my pairing, I was so excited. I was paired with this amazing woman, Saber. I didn’t know much about her. I had seen her pictures on Flickr and truly admired the diversity of her work. Aside from that though, I had never spoken with her. So, for her and I, I would say this challenge worked out just like it was supposed to…helping bloggers meet other bloggers and building new friendships.
What I can tell you is I absolutely loved this challenge and getting to meet Saber. While we had to battle the challenges of time zone differences, every moment I got to learn a little more about Saber was amazing. We laughed and we shared. We talked about blogging and life. I mean, to get this shot, we spent about fours from the time we met up until we actually had our shots…primarily because we were so busy talking and laughing. She really is an amazing person and someone I have so much respect for as I have gotten to know her. I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity to work with her. ♥
So in the spirit of Christmas, and the BVN Collab Challenge, we decided to use our submission to celebrate friendships…new and old…and what those friends mean to us all at the holiday season.
Saber…thank you so much for being such an amazing person to work with. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing spirit with me. Thank you, most of all, for the new friendship with such an amazing woman.
So from Saber and I, we wish you a very Merry Christmas/Holiday Season. ♥
Make sure to check out Saber’s version on her Flickr.
