Awe...I love Facebook.  It took me the longest time to get on board because my baby bo peep gave me strict NOT get on Facebook and check out what I'm up to because you will be a nerd mother.

Then, I decided to promote my online news sites with its powerful connectivity and in the meantime "friended" my children...and they friended me back...none of them are up to anything anymore.

This is what I saw a few days ago

After 8 LONG years of road trips, long distance phone calls, Skype dates, and lots of goodbyes, I could not be more happy that Cody Mac and I finally live in the same city :) Beyond excited to begin this new journey! — with Cody Mac Been.

It really tugged at my heart because I really didn't realize just how hard their love journey had been.  I have told her often in her sadness how lucky she was because  I had to actually write a letter that took a long time to send and receive, and phone calls at $2.50 per minute were a luxury--and short.  

They have dated off and on through a high school romance, going off to colleges in different states and different times, and finally discovering they had the real thing to last a lifetime.

And this is the photo I saw on Facebook today thanks to his fun sister
Coach Been
you look exactly the same
I hope you saved this vest

June 30
here we come!

From the mother of the bride
I am beyond excited
 right there with you

There is nothing on earth worse for a mother than knowing her child is unhappy. There is nothing on earth better for a mother than to know her chick has found "the ONE" - and that as her hand leaves ours to reside in another, we can rejoice that her heart will be in a safe place. could NEVER be a nerd mother, you are waaaaay too cool.

How sweet - one of the things I love about Facebook is it's rawness - people put things on there that they would not necessarily share in person. I've reconnected with cousins I never knew in Europe, old friends from 30 years ago an nieces and nephews I only saw on big family occassions. Facebook has it's downside, but it's mostly positive. And look what a gift it gave you!!


Really??What a story!!The real life is beyond the most exciting scenario of a movie..!!That's the good thing about Facebook..!!It is incredible!

one is roots. The other is wings.
