Umm, I Had The Best Intentions But...

Seriously, I was going to take you all on a virtual bloggy adventure with me. I was going to chronicle my whole cross country red eye flight to Indiana with Emily to have a huge slumber party with Cindy and Angel. I was going to take pictures in the airport, pictures upon arrival, pictures of first hugs, pictures of every thing we did.

But...
We've been so busy soaking each other in that I haven't wanted to pull myself away long enough to blog.

I used to think it was the craziest thing ever when I heard about people who met online and felt a connection and ended up getting married or something. But it is crazy no more.


Because when you follow peoples blogs and begin the e-mails and phone calls of a new friendship you get all the preliminary stuff out of the way. So when you finally get to meet you jump right into the deep stuff. The struggles and triumphs that you really can't put out there for the general public.


And every once in a while I have this moment of, "I can't believe I'm sitting here in Indiana with these girls...in my pajamas...eating Emily's birthday cake...laughing till I cry....and praying for each other."


How cool is that?

That picture of all of us...is NOT flattering. I look like a troll.

you must be out having fun, rather than being more choosey with your photos.

That is so cool!

I "met" someone through blogging, and, although we've never met in person, it feels like I've known her for a long time!

To be sisters in Christ is an awesome thing! I'm glad you had the opportunity to meet them!

I totally understand having BIG intentions to live blog, but knowing that you just really need to spend that time soaking it all in!

I don't think Em looks like a troll, exactly. But I do look like my double chin is about to make me fall over.
