18th September 2008

The reason for the date as todays post heading is that today is a very special day in the life of one of my bloggy friends.

Today Lauren and Ted get married.

Today they start their lives together as husband and wife and I couldnt be happier for them.

I started blogging because of Lauren.

Yip, its true.

Basically, I needed to find a driving school in my area and I know of one called "Busy Bee", but didnt know what their contact details were. So, I headed over to ever-trusty Google and I well, Googled it.

Needless to say, I never did find the number, but what I DID find was so much better than any "learn-to-drive-telephone-no"

Over the next few months I got to know Lauren and many other bloggers, and started my own blog to.

I got to know Lauren as a wonderful woman (almost my age) whose posts about life in AZ made me laugh and sometimes cry. I followed her life through the good and bad and its crazy, but I almost feel as through she is my friend for real.

***I think I should insert " I am NOT a crazy-lurker-stalker-person" here***

I just feel that if I could have chosen a place to live and a best friend to have, my answers would have been "Next door to the Face Family" and "Lauren"

Or maybe they could have come to live in Africa - that would have been awesome aswell..if they could cope with all the roaming lions and zebra that is! :)

So, basically, I just want to wish Lauren and her Ted all the best for their big day and their lives ahead. They make the absolutely perfect couple and Im sure Im not the only one that thinks that. The way you guys have loved each other and reached today is truely an inspiration for me.

May the Lord bless you today and always.

All my love

That's exactly how I feel about Lauren and her posts! So sweet. What a laugh. What an example. :)

Oh, and what's funny is that I found out that my father-in-law IS on of her neighbors! wow. I would also LOVE to live next to them.

Congrats Lauren and Ted!

Yay! Sweet post!

And I bet you're jealous 'cause I get to hang out with the "Face" family! I'm so blessed to call them my friends!

Why don't you just move here? We've got an extra room!

Klin said...

You know that she is just as genuine and sweet as she is on her blog.

Last night we determined that the haters are just jealous that they aren't as classy and adorable as she is.

I'm so excited for her and Ted.

Heather said...

Isn't it funny how excited we get about the important things that happen to our other friends?! I was so excited about thier marriage too and I don't even know them except from the blogging world. I met Lauren through her mom whom I met through my sister and SIL. It's amazing how many friendships are gained through a little snooping! lol

Busy Bee Lauren said...

Aww, this post made me so happy. I would love for you to move next door to me and be my in real life best friend. You are one of the sweetest bloggers I know over the internet :) Love you :)

i know exactly what you were saying about Lauren in your post! she is awesome and her Ted is awesome and i am SO ecstatic that they found eachother. i can only hope that when i get to that stage - when i find someone i want to spend the rest of my life with - i will be nearly as blessed as they are! cool people.
