a totally mushy post about why I love you all

I love you guys, I really do.

I am so happy I found this place and all of you...and here are a few reasons why.

From IVF to reflux to sleep deprivation- you are always here for me. I was overwhelmed with the amount of people who took the time to get samples of neo.cate for my baby girl when they didn't have to.  I have gotten great tips and advice from so many people around the world. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it.

I have made some amazing friends here that I email or text just about every day.  I talk about all of you to my husband, I show him pictures of your babies, share who has finally gotten a BFP and I tell him who is going through an IVF cycle (he might think I'm crazy for being attached to people I've never actually met). 

I got my first real mother's day card in the mail yesterday and wouldn't you know it was sent by one of my blogger besties, D.  I actually got tears in my eyes thinking about how we came to know each other and what a great friend she has been to me.  I love you D, you have become a best friend to me and I appreciate the card so much.

Then I got an email from another blog friend who had wonderful news that she chose to share with myself and another blogger.  I am more than thrilled for her and I'm honored that she would chose to email me with her news. 

This group of bloggers have become like family to me.  I come here when I have a problem I can't solve, a milestone to share, or just to vent and you are always here with something nice to say. I wish I could meet you all and give you each a huge hug.

Thank you.

 P.S. this upbeat post is brought to you by sleep.  Emily slept for 12 hours last night only waking once to eat at 4:30am.  Hallelujah.

  1. Isn't it amazing the connection and friendship you can have with people you've never met?! There should be a big blogger convention where everyone can meet up! I have made some lifelong friends through my blog and another online support group that I will forever cherish! And thank YOU for your support!!

  2. Haha, I think you are on a sleep high! Lol But I totally understand what you mean and just like Andrea said, THANK YOU for your support! I know I appreciate your emails and advice, especially since our kiddos both have struggled with sleep, naps and reflux issues! So glad I have someone to talk to about all of this mommy stuff!

  5. What a lovely post! :) As you know, I am new to the blogging world, although an oldie to the blog reading world. One of the reasons I finally started blogging myself was after seeing the amazing friendships form from a distance and the out pour of support given through every up and down along the way. I feel so fortunate to now be a part of this little cyber world and already feel so much love and support from other bloggers like yourself. As you have said here, it really is such an amazing community!!
