IT'S A SMALL WORLD AFTERALL...

Okay..where do I begin????

Yesterday, one of my new bloggy friends, (Mama's Smitten) and I just realized that we are both from California! I gave her the general area where I was from just so she could get an idea where I lived. Who knows, she could live right by me, right? Well, she wrote me back and told me that we're probably an hour away from each other. That got me curious so I told her to email me privately so we could share exactly where we lived. So, sure enough, she is about an hour from me..LOL. (There's also another gal I met in blog land (Wasted Textbooks) who also does not live that far from me either, and Lord willing we'll be able to hook up soon!) Well, check this out! Mama's Smitten writes me back again and tells me that as she was looking through some of my old posts, she sees HER COUSIN on my blog (who is my oldest daughters friend)!! Well, I'm totally tripping out because her aunt and I are really good friends!! In fact, she is one of the ladies I go walking with after church on Sunday nights!!! Isn't that so trippy???? I cannot wait to call my friend and tell her all of this!! I really believe in six degrees of separation! Have any of you ladies had experiences like this yet, in blogland?

Melissa said...

no, but that is so cool!

I'm part of an online group that I joined when I was pregnant with Kendra, and I've met a few girls from there cause they live in the area, but none of my bloggy friends and I have met in person yet.

Mel said...

oh that is so neat!!!!

momstheword said...

Not yet I haven't. But then I really don't know where anybody lives.

Denise said...

"It's a small world after all!!"

Did you sing that because I did :) That is way cool! Never happened to me.

Angela said...

Isn't that the neatest thing ~ six degrees of seperation!! Kind of scary at times! Yes actually this has happened to me! Recently I found a blogger who cracks me up. I found out we were in the same town. THEN while reading a post with a picture of her daughter at school I thought wow that looks like my son's school. Sure enough it was. Our 1st grader goes to school with her 5th grader THEN we also found out our 9th graders go to school together also and we live within minutes of each other! Too funny~definitely a small world after all!

Sara said...

That is so funny! You're the closest person to me that i've met so far.

He And Me + 3 said...

That is crazy. You are so lucky...both of you. Wish I lived closer:(

Laura said...

That is so cool! Anybody who blogs in Fl usually is down south! That's what I've found anyways. Hope you are able to meet up with your new blogging friends soon!

JMBMOMMY said...

Beth in NC said...

That is so cool!! What a small world!!!!

Jane Anne said...

That is amazing- how fun! I haven't experience anything like that yet. I think it will be neat to meet blogland friends one day.

R and R Stacy said...

That's so cool. Where in Cali do you live? I have a lot of family there - Los Angels and Stockton to be exact.

Mother Goose said...

I haven't yet! but so much fun for you. I am looking forward to this experience too!

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

I haven't experienced it yet. I'm waiting....

blueviolet said...

No, I haven't but that's so awesome!

Daphine said...

Nope, not yet. I do have a couple of blog friends who come to Dallas sometimes. I hope one day we'll be able to meet. I don't see in the near future me coming to California...but I would sooooooooooo love to meet you too girl!

Have a good weekend.

Susie said...

Coincidences like that are sometimes creepy:-)

Melanie said...

Oh, how cool! I would love to find out the some of my bloggy friends lived close by.

Thanks for visiting me this week! Have a great weekend!

Lisa said...

That is so neat for you Alicia, let us know when you hook up that is way cool.

It really is a small world - I love it! There was a fellow blogger from Maputo Mozambique whose home base in the US is right down the road from ours here in Oregon - population a couple hundred.

joanofalltrades said...

I have yet to have an experience like this in blogland, but that is so coll that you guys are connected and you live close. I keep saying all of the ATL bloggers need to get together and do a regional thing.

Samantha said...

I had an online friend for quite sometime and one day she asked how I knew some people she saw that I was connected to. When I told her that they had been pastors of my aunts church twenty years ago she replied that they were her pastors twenty years ago too. Turns out that she and my aunt were long, lost friends that were able to reconnect, and I'd even met her once as a child.
