We all live in a very busy, fast-paced and technology based world. With everything literally at our fingertips, it can be easy to go days or weeks without physically talking to anybody - we are connected on a digital level but are people really THAT connected these days? 

It's funny how we talk about slowing down life, putting down the smart phones and getting back to really connecting with each other because on the Internet is where I met the man who would ultimately become my better half, my best friend and the father to my now three beautiful children. We met online which allowed us the base we needed to "get to know each other" on a different level. Once that friendship was established we met in person and the rest is history. It just goes to show you how powerful human connection can be - once you get offline. This kind of connection may not work for everyone but it worked for us, eleven years later and counting. That's my #CheeriosEffect story! 

You're probably wondering what cereal has to do with being connected. The Cheerio Effect is apparently a scientific principal that is nicknamed after the cereal. It's about the fact that if you drop two cheerios in a bowl of milk, they'll always eventually float together and connect. You just went to try that didn't you? ;-)

Just like those two little o's - we are drawn together and hard-wired to connect with those around us. It's natural and no matter who you are, where you are from or who you choose to share your life with, Cheerios believes everyone is worthy of love and connection.

To celebrate such a simple concept, Cheerios has put together a series videos about real people sharing their real life connection moments. You can check out one of the videos below. I recommend a box of tissue, these can get emotional and they are such wonderful stories.
