True Story Tuesday - Small World

I know it's Wednesday, but this lovely little story occurred yesterday, Tuesday, and I just had to share. When I entered the blogging world a few short months ago I stumbled upon the adorable The Company She Keeps. Needless to say, I became a huge fan immediately. When the precious BLC posted pictures of herself, she seemed extremely familiar and reminded me of a girl I had attended private school with who everyone adored (as I know you can all imagine). I was at the school from 6th - 9th grade, and the girl I was thinking of was two or three grades ahead of me. I realized that there was no way BLC was the girl I was thinking she might be and went along my merry way. Yesterday after posting pictures of our vacation, BLC left me a message asking if we had gone to school together. Her memory was jogged after seeing pictures of my brother, who was only one grade below her. Sure enough, once we exchanged emails we discovered that we did, in fact, know each other, but it had been years since we'd seen one another, and despite attending a small school together, we'd never actually met - rather, seen each other around campus almost every day. Even in cyber-blog world, eight degrees of separation are eerily close together! I am so glad to know you, BLC! I hope we can reconnect in "real life" next time you're in town!

Here's another chapter to that story!! BLC and I have known each other for years and years (we went to the big pink church together from an early age), and I found YOUR blog on her blog (polka dots & protein bars was just too cute to ignore) and guess what... WE went to that same private school together!! I hope you and your family are doing well!!
