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.

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. :)
