it's been a while...

tuesdays unwrapped at cats
the best thing i find about social network sites such as facebook is that you can find or reconnect with so many,  especially family members whom you've lost contact with over the years.  i heart those the most. a few months ago i reconnected with an uncle i have not seen since my wedding, which is almost two decades ago.  this was the first time he's met the kids, two out of the three anyways.  (miss bling is in florida for their freshman class trip, hence the reason why she's not in the picture.)
through facebook he told me that he would be flying into charlotte from southern california to attend a convention for his company. he would have never come to charlotte otherwise.  he arrived sunday night  but tonight was the only night he had a few hours to visit.  we had a loveLee time catching up over dinner at a wonderful italian place uptown.  he wanted to drive around since he'll probably never make it out this way again,  so we gave him a quick mini tour of the QC, we drove by my sissy's house, went to our house for a few then drove him back to his hotel.  he had an early flight out back to southern california in the morning.

this gift i have just unwrapped is rare and so far and few between.  reconnecting with friends and loved ones whom you lost touch with and actually being able to get together to sit, chat and catch up.

Facebook is great. I'm connecting with relatives from all over the place. What did you cook for dinner? It looks scrumptious! I am unwrapping the gift of being able to work from home today. It is a gift to have a flexible work schedule.

How wonderful that you were able to visit after all those years. And what a beautiful family photo...aw to bad that Miss Bling wasn't there this time.

I guess I was feeling mighty confident of my computer skills (I am so NOT computer savvy) after starting a blog and my online shop, that I finally took the plunge with facebook...still a lot I dont understand, but I have kept it up, since I have had friend requests from high school classmates from way, way, way back when! and even from some family on my mom's side that I didnt even know existed!

So...it is amazing how much the internet makes our ability to connect and reconnect :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
(Thank you for your sweet comment...I appreciate that you so kindly overlooked my sleepy state and puffiness in my photo from just getting up! haha)
