This is the very first time I have MIRled someone I met through blogging, and it was really incredible the way it all transpired.
I was visiting a homeschool forum board I like to frequent, and I saw a post by OC mom saying she had just started a blog and inviting us to visit it. I visited because I saw "Orange County" in the title and liked the idea of having a blog neighbor..it seems like everyone on my bloglines list is from the south or midwest. So, I visited and commented because it is nice to encourage a new blogger..and through our chatting, and several emails, we realized that she knew my friend, Jennifer and had lost track of her 8 years ago. Adding to the incredible-ness of all this, my friend Jennifer was flying in for a business trip and would be staying at my house for a night. So...we arranged to all meet at Indian food. Because, my family and Jennifer's family love to eat together..and after reading *this* on OC mom's blog-I knew they were birds of a feather.
So, we MIRled..and had to get a picture for our blawgs. We uncovered the important stuff that builds a friendship...our love of the Lord, about our children,..met the husbands, stories about how me met our husbands, talked about homeschooling and discovered that we all dabble a little in scrapbooking. (o.k. , not the husbands). So, now we have to do what comes naturally to all homeschoolers...the park day...
I promise pictures.
and she was very nice and pretty, and her husband was smart and funny, and they are just really neat.
