First, I have to address the meet-ups. I love them, and I offered to meet and make as many friends as possible. That said, Craig and I have ground rules for them- for our safety and for yours. Until I meet you, even though we have chatted online, I still don’t “know” you. You may think you know me and my family because of this blog, which is great, but I am still getting to know you. Our time is valuable, just as much as yours is, so unless we can commit a full day that has been planned in advance, we are most likely open to a ride, or a soda, possibly a meal, conversation and a picture. I am not complaining AT ALL, they have all been great, but there have been times that meets went longer than they should have because I just didn’t have the heart to speak up and say something.
We have also discussed that unless you are a local friend we have hung out with, Craig and I are covering our bases and will not be meeting up with anyone of the opposite sex by ourselves. I say this out of love and responsibility to my family and marriage, and I don’t want the meets to end if one of them should sour. I hope all of you understand where I am coming from on this.
Most of the times it will likely be just myself at the Meets, as Craig is working and we feel the kids being involved with them hasn’t worked out so they will not be involved further unless discussed prior to a Meet.
That all being said, I would LOVE to meet you- so please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with when you are in WDW, and I will try to make time for you. God bless you and yours!
