Today, I met Sariah in Vancouver for the first time. It was so fun! I have to admit that I was a little nervous. I mean, how well can you really get to know someone online, anyway? And then there’s all the weirdos you hear about (although I wasn’t too worried about her being in that category).
So anyrate… we planned to meet at 11 am at a local, well-known park. I got there a good 20 minutes late, and thought she would be easy to find: I just had to look for another pregnant lady! Hee hee. Howver, it seemed that today was the day for every pregnant woman to be at the park.
Sariah came with her daughter, husband, sister-in-law, and some of Cadi’s cousins. They got there just a few minutes after me, and as soon as Acadia jumped out of the car, I could tell it was her! We just sat and let the kids play, ate some lunch, and talked. It was so fun. Can I just say, all Sariahs rock. I think that is a future post in the making.
It was a lot of fun to meet someone from online, and it was really fun to meet someone that I realized if we did live near each other, we could easily be friends. We spent a good two hours there, and I don’t think a minute of it was awkward.
We took some pictures, but my camera wouldn’t work for some reason, so you’ll have to wait for Sariah to email them to me or post them on her site (both of which will happen).
So, that wasn’t a big, exciting post or anything, but I just had to tell you all what fun it was to have my cyber universe and my real universe collide for a couple of hours.
