I am enjoying myself immensely at the very first Blissdom Conference in Canada.

Yesterday was an extremely special day for me. A great start to this time in Toronto.

I got to meet up with someone I have had a relationship with for over 3 years but have never actually met. I love this new virtual world we live in.

I first met Tara, from Tara’s View of the World, through an online chat room / forum / support group for Pastor’s Wives. Yes, there is such a thing! We casually chatted via this media tool and through our blogs for a couple of years and then last winter I asked her to work for me with WhiteCloud Marketing. She now helps me keep things straight!! As our relationship grew, we began to talk almost on a daily basis thanks to the beauty of Skype.

Each morning, we talk using the video feed, while still in our jammies, hair in a towel and even before we’ve had our morning coffee. We’ve cleaned our houses while the video was still rolling, done our dishes and disciplined our kids, all the while continuing our conversation. Just as if we were actually in each other’s home. Our kids have got to know each other – our husbands have even chatted. It is the greatest virtual relationship I have ever had. 🙂

So yesterday, before Blissdom Canada started, my hubby and I (and our youngest boy, Jake – who btw was so excited to meet Tara that he giggled the entire time!) picked her up from the airport. This video below is the LIVE – caught on tape – recording of how we got to see each other in real life for the very first time.
