Welcome Wagon for ilovemyemt ~~HOLLY!
Sat, 02-07-2009 - 11:20pm

Here is your welcome wagon, where we will get to know you better. Please feel free to answer the questions that you are comfortable with and skip the rest.

A little about us....
Our wonderful board was created shortly after 9/11 with the intention of connecting with people in similar situations ~ being in a relationship with a ff. But because the board has been around for quite some time (our two fearless leaders have been here almost since the beginning), and many friendships have formed ~ we don't typically stick to topics that ONLY deal with our ff's but a variety of topics that we deal with on a daily basis. Having said that, please don’t let the closeness our board shares run you off. Before you know it you will feel part of these friendships, especially if you jump right in and post away. If there is a joke, or a word (we tend to have a dictionary all our own around here) or anything that you are confused about, please ask us.....we will be more than happy to tell the story over again....even if it means it is at the expense of someone’s embarrassment! ;)

Check out our "Firefighters Wives" web site too!

If you want to know more about any of us please feel free to ask or click on our user name to find out more about us.

Welcome again and we all look forward to getting to know you better!
