I Feel As If I Already Know You!

Dear Blogland Friends,

I feel as though I have known all of you for a long time. I have been reading your blogs, making a few comments, feeling your pain and hope and often laughing very hard at what you have written.

My husband and I are new to this DD and it was the desire to share with others and feel the support that  resulted in my beginning this blog. I wanted to tell about my journey because I have listened to you tell yours. Already I have felt the support of one special blogger. I felt her concern as I shared my journey. She was always supportive and encouraging. She told me that all of you were that way. So I am ready to share my story.

  2. Welcome Meredith

    You can exhale now :). Share what you want, when you want. The more you do, the more you will get out of this community. Blog land is like a neighbourhood where you can leave your doors unlocked and your kids are safe to play. Give it time. You'll see.

    That doesn't always mean you are going to agree with people say mind you, but it generally always comes from a good place. They just want to help.

    Enjoy

  3. Hey there Meredith,

    Welcome to blogland. It's a wonderful and encouraging place. I look forward to hearing about your adventure into the world of TTWD. The best advice I got when I started my blog was to remember to write for you. Share what you want to share. Don't feel pressured to change the things you say. We are here to get to know you. Have fun with it and like Willie says the neighbors will come out and play.

    Welcome again,
    TL

  4. welcome meredith! i tend to leave all my lights on and my kids are running around in the streets naked, but they're playing with willie's messy kids too, so it's all good. :)

    this is a wonderful community and i considered myself "new" once too, that was a few months ago and now i'm feeling so peaceful about my space among all these darling faces. i hope the same for you, too!

    hugs, new friend,

Welcome go blog land. :) It is always so great to see new people who are starting because it gives those of us a chance who were beginners not so long ago a chance to listen, and support in the ways we were listened to and supported when we began. You'll love this community. We support each other, care for each other, challenge each other, and grow together.:) Welcome aboard, I can't wait to hear your journey.

  18. Meredith, I wanted to say hi. Hi! My Love and I started DD only in September 2013. But I too read blogs for a long time before ever commenting and even longer before I started my blog. Then, I didn't post about anything DD for months. I enjoy starting at the beginning of blogs and getting to 'know' people so I figured this is the best place for my first reply to a message. I've read about 6 of your posts so far and have found too many similarities I have stopped counting. - it seems I'm a bit younger as I have kids at home in various levels of education but the biggest thing is we've been married much longer then most people would guess because we were best friends as kids and marred just after graduating HS too. He's never dated anyone but me.
    Anyway. Hi and I love your blog so far. I'm starting here and reading everyone to the most recent now. Blessings to you.
