In the past five years, I have made many online and IRL friends through online forums while planning our wedding, dealing with RPL, and battling IF. Many of you are reading this right now and we have never met before. However, I've made many wonderful, new friends in the past handful of years.
One of my newest friends is Jenn. I met her through kimarino, who I met online years ago during RPL and IF. While I've never met kimarino IRL, Jenn recently moved to Texas and we've had the chance to meet and develop a friendship. The first time we met, it was for a drug deal. :) Thankfully, I was able to give Jenn the leftover meds that my crusty eggs and bum ute wouldn't ever need again. I hated for them to go to waste and was glad I found someone who needed them.
Usually when I meet complete strangers, I'm a bit nervous beforehand. However, I was so excited to meet Jenn and we sat and ate and drank and chatted like old friends. It was awesome. We are so much alike - for those of you that know me personally, no comments please. :) As I walked in to the restaurant, I was greeted by my new friend bearing a bag full of this for me:
Isn't it awesome??? Our baby has a toy, a sleep sack (so cute!), some diapers, and wipies now! Other than an outfit our friends gave us when we first found out we were pregnant, this is the first baby-related gift I've been given that didn't make me cry. I can't begin to tell you how exciting it was! So not only does our baby have some cool stuff now, but I have made a wonderful friend which is even better. Love you Jenn!
