Bloggy Friends

Those of you who don't blog, may think making friends in this cyber world is strange and/or crazy.  It's not.  Leigh Ann and I went to the same high school (as did her husband), but we didn't know much about each other until we reconnected in bloggyland.  LA sent me an email a few months back inviting me and my family to dinner the next time we were in the area (my parents live there).  The first few dates didn't work, and then, I sent a last minute email, LA graciously accepted, and we had a wonderful evening together.  Dinner was fabulous, LA's house is beautiful, and I love that I now I can REALLY picture where she lives and blogs.  Our husbands clicked, our kids had a blast, and we left just before total meltdown.  Thanks, the the whole "Momma Roar family" for a wonderful evening.  I think you should plan a homeschooling fieldtrip to DC.....



A few weeks later, I entered another blogging right of passage when Jessica came for lunch.  She is a blogging friend who I had NEVER met in real life.  She was in town visiting a friend, and she made a point of coming to meet me and my family.  She called in route, and it was strange to realize I never heard her voice.  It is a crazy experience to know so much about someone that you have never met!  Well, we were like old friends.  She is just as sweet in person as she is on her blog.  Thanks, Jess.  I am honored that you took time to come and see me.  I hope you'll come again.

I love Leigh Ann and feel like we have met in person even though we've never done so. We've been internet friends for a very long time. I feel like she knows more about me than most of my friends who know me in person.


Hmmm, scary part is, would she really like me if she met me? I hope so :D I remember meeting Sarah and being quite nervous. Now I wonder why as she is so easy to be around and so easy to love.

i for one can say for sure i've got to know you a whole lot more by reading your blog. it was funny when we came to visit this thanksgiving, not feeling at all like i was out of touch. i knew so much about what was going on with you, because i love to read your blog. so, yes, i wish i had the time and creativity to start one myself. usually with these things i just need something to get me started... hmmm... LOL. yea, like i don't spend enough time sitting down!
