I love my "online" friends. To me they are just as real as are any friends I would see on a regular basis face to face. We share laughs and tears just as would "real" friends. We offer each other love, encouragement and support. Maybe even auto insurance quotes . Who knows. It could happen..
Yesterday I was fortunate enough to meet a very dear friend in person. My BFF. Maureen. She and a friend drove to the States just to meet me and Mr. Skittles.
We became friends in the Fall of 2006. We were both new to blogging and she had stumbled across my blog somehow (maybe fate?) and saw a post I'd done about American Idol. Taylor Hicks. Soul Patrol! We both adored him.
Blog visits and comments turned into emails and occasional phone calls. The occasional phone calls turned into daily calls and part of our routines. Part of our lives.
I miss her so much already.
Here are a few pictures from yesterday..
