Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!

About three years ago I followed a link in a magazine that led me to a blog. Before that I’d never even heard of such a thing. And for some strange reason it fascinated me that you could just toss your ideas into the internet ring for all to read. So, I jumped in with both feet.

I had no idea what an addiction it would become. It was so fun to design it and think of things to write about and find my niche. And then the comments started to come and that made it even MORE fun. There were actual people out there that I’d never even met, who lived on the other side of the continent or farther, and we could touch each others lives.

Wow!

But never once did I think that I would make deep friendships with any of these people. Never did I think I would come to the place where I would call them on the phone, send Christmas cards, or share deep dark secrets. But that is where I find myself.

So tomorrow I’m hopping on an airplane to meet up with Emily and Cindy for 4 days and three nights of 24 hour giggles and girl parties.

And I’m sure I’ll have all kinds of stories and picture when I get back.

Isn’t the internet amazing?

I'm excited to be going to my first meet-up, too! The internet is SO cool!

I hope you girls have fun!

Scott said...

Take care of Cindy.
And when I say, "Take care of" I mean in a kind, sweet, friendly sort of way. NOT the way the mob "takes care" of people.
So help me, if you turn out to be a middle-aged man who kidnaps my wife and keeps her in a pit in your basement...

I will take this opportunity to tell you that I am so thankful that "the Gayles" found one another on this World Wide Web.
You have blessed my life from the very first intro back at HSB...

I can't wait for the details! Ha Scott's comment made me laugh. Last time I saw Gayle in Emily they were NOT middle aged men, but hey, with this changing world you never know! Kidding. You guys have a BLAST! ~K
