I love getting mail

When Pat and I got engaged I didn't have a clue about how to plan a wedding. I had heard about The Knot, which is a wedding planning website. I registered and got a few ideas here and there and then I discovered the message boards.

I had never been part of an 'online community' before, but I was excited to find there was a board specific for people getting married in September 2008. Those girls became my lifeline for months and knew every detail about our wedding. They helped me with all of my projects and became a real solid support system.

I am so excited to say that there are a lot of us that are still members of the community and remain in contact each day. I have built some really strong friendships from the message board and it is a integral part of my day.

Some of the ladies I've met in real life and some I hope to one day. I know that no matter what is going on I can turn to them for support, sound advice and some good laughs.

What does all of this have to do with the subject of this post, getting mail? I came home to a package today from one of my "September '08 girls" as I call them. How sweet is my fabulous friend? I can't wait to meet her in real life.
