Thank you KC!

KC gave me these two awards and I am so flattered! I met KC at MOPs a few years ago and have barely seen her in person since. There always seems to be a sick child or circumstance that keeps us from being at the meetings at the same time. The good thing is that I feel like I know her so well now since she does such a great job updating her blog.
That got me thinking about meeting people off the internet and it made me remember that I met my husband that way. I hardly ever think about it so it makes it too easy to forget. We met on the internet in February of 1997 and met in person in April of 1997. We got along great but I didn't want a long distance relationship so I ended it and we didn't talk or email each other for a whole year. I ended up thinking about him a lot and emailed him and we have been together ever since. We only dated for 4 months which was difficult 8 hours apart so we saw each other about once or twice a month. We married after that 4 months in August of 1998. What a crazy world! I think about that now and it frightens me because of all the scary people out there. I would never let my child do that! I'm just lucky that I married into a nice Christian family that taught me a lot.

Congrats, Stacey, on the blogger award!
It's always neat to hear how people find each other. I would be scared to meet someone over the internet these days too. You just never know.

Take care.

I never knew that you met your hubby online. Amazing.
