Just a little piece of space.

This is my life, these are my loves, and this is my dream...

My Somewhere Special!

We all have our supports, our vices, our interests, and I wanted to share with you one of mine.  Now I know I'm kind of putting myself on the line here, and I hope that I don't come across as some sort of geeky mad lady, because, I'm pretty far from that in reality.   There is a place (yes, online, gasp), that I go to that is very special to me.  It's so much more then a forum, it's a place of sanity, a sanctuary in a way.  It was over 4 years ago that I stumbled across it, and it's been like finding an oasis in a desert.   It's a wonderful company that design and produce baby bags, and so much more.  The bags are great,  better then any I have ever used, and I won't go into that, because it's not what this post is about.  It's the Company that is so special.  When I first joined the forum years ago, I had no clue that I'd meet so many amazing people, that I would still be in touch with them years afterwards, or that I would feel as though the owners of the Company, were more like family friends.

After moving around the world so much, it's been so nice to go to the same familiar happy place, where I know  my friends are waiting to hang out, listen, laugh, cry and support eachother.  Some of these ladies, I have had the pleasure to meet and know pretty well, others, I just 'know'.  We just get eachother.  The forum is massive now.  Who knew all that time ago, when there were just a few of us? I think everyone, Joe, Kristin and Rachelle included, are amazed at where this journey has taken them.   The women who log on, range from stay at home Mums, to professionals, we are all different and we all have one thing in common.  Our love for the people who created the Company, and their products.  Honestly, we don't chat about bags all day, (as nice as they are), but it's a place where you can go to get wonderful advice about just about anything you could imagine...  I'm lucky enough to moderate on the boards, and it's been a real pleasure and a privilege.   It's my hobby, it's my little bit of 'me time' when David is away, and it's late at night, and I'm pulling my hair out over one thing or another.   They are my friends.  True friends, not virtual.  These are honest to goodness, salt of the earth, loving, sweet and real people who you know will be there for you night or day - and they often have been.  Women who rally round, who go above and beyond to make your day just that little bit lighter when you are struggling.
 So this is a section in my blog for all of you.  To my PL friends, to Joe, Kristin, and Rachelle - thank you so much.   The Pink Room has been one of the best investments of my life, time-wise, and I wouldn't trade a moment of it.
