I posted A LOT back then--this is MichelleandCraig--I'm from Wisconsin,married a man from Kent,England in 05. Like everyone,busy life etc so haven't taken time to spend here after our first year or so together....but,though there are still *significant rough patches,there is love as &we just had our 8th anniversary March 26th. :) I can't believe I remembered user name& password first try--that can only speak to how much time I used to spend here....because 7/8 years later I dont think I would have remembered it for any other site! :) I keep up with a very few on Facebook (hi Silvy if you're around!)but would like to add some others if you'd like as well.....similar circumstances etc....especially if any of you are still around from "back when" but anyone is welcome.Inbox me if you'd like to connect on FB as well.Plan to start checking in here again occassionally too....so give me a holler if you're out there! Tediously typing on my phone right now,but will break out the laptop later this afternoon so I can view the site properly.

Meantime, HI EVERYONE!! *Big wave* :D

Hehehe, I'm the newbie in this group! Good to hear from you again - and congratulations on your anniversary. We're headed for our 9th this June :) . Hard to believe. It really has gone by quickly.
