I am so so so Excited!!!!

 

Let me just  say that this blog thing; well I never expected in a million years to have found so many wonderful friends!  I love the community that is here.  It is uplifting and wonderful and creative.  So many wonderful and talented people are here.

I love the fact that every now and then, I get to meet some of you!  Well tomorrow, I get to meet one of my first blog friends ever!!!

Here is just some background info!

Way back on January 10, 2008 I received this comment on this post.

I actually saw your name on Pioneer Woman's comment page. I have never met anyone else who spells their name the way that we do! How exciting!
I'm sorry about your son. That looks awful. Oh the joys of kids :-)!

I commented back...

I saw your name on Pioneer Woman also and thought, Oh my goodness someone else whose mother spelled there name that way and caused her to explain for the rest of her life no its Valarie with an "A" not an "E". Tell your son congratulations on the tooth. Believe me the fun has just begun.

And the rest is history...

 

Now tomorrow, I get to meet my wonderful friend Valarie in Mexico. (which is what I call her when explaining who she is to everyone) Her and her family are in the states visiting family for the holidays and they are coming to my house tomorrow!!!!!  I am so excited!!!!

So I want to say Thank You to Pioneer Woman, if it were not for your blog and the Grace of God, I would not have meet my friend Valarie.  :)

Hi sweetie! Isnt' the internet and the blogging world such an amazing place?! It can do so much good for so many people, myself included. I am so proud to have met you via blogging and hope someday we too can meet! I am so excited for you and can't wait to see what you write about your meeting and be sure and take pictures! I met one of my blogging buddies this year and we both forgot to take pictures! Now we are great friends as we had been instant messaging and writing and even talking on the phone and texting prior to even meeting. When we finally DID meet, it was like putting on an old shoe that fit just right...

Good luck!!!

Hugs!

Hi Valerie!

Oh that sounds like a dream come true. Meeting a blog friend is something I am hoping to achieve soon. I have a friend in Cleveland, Ohio who would like to have lunch the next time I visit my brother and his family. Her and I have become blog buddies and I so look forward to when the day comes.

I have restarted my Pretty Amazing Grace Blog. Although I will be off for a bit again. I am having major surgery this Tuesday. I will not be computing for a few weeks or so. It depends how I heal. But, I missed you all so much I had to start over. Unfortunately, I lost all of my posts, but that is okay. Its old news anyway. ;-) Moving forward...that is the key!

Here is my new link:

Have a blessed and wonderful time my dear friend.

Hugs,
Kimmie
