The Day We Met You

One year ago...


I woke up very, very early (3:30 am) and wasn't able to get back to sleep. (And I was completely stressed out about it)

6 hours later we were getting into the SWS van to head over to the apartment of a very special woman...

5 minutes after that, we both thought we would be sick due to nerves, lack of sleep, nerves, adrenalin, nerves, and maybe just a little bit of it had to do with the driving. [wink]


And then, @30 minutes after the van pulled away from SWS, it pulled into the complex where you were staying...

and the world simultaneously stood still and sped up.


I remember seeing you sitting in the middle of the room, looking at the door as we came in... body facing one way, but your head and attention focused completely our way.

I remember forgetting to take my shoes off because I was so excited.

I remember seeing your face and thinking "Oh my god, I'm the luckiest girl alive."

Neither of us wanted to pick you up first, for fear of being too "grabby."

So the SW did.

Thank goodness, or you may still be sitting on that floor! [wink]



There's so many details I remember about that meeting that it's hard to believe the visit was only an hour long. But yet, it wasn't nearly long enough...

I honestly don't remember the rest of the day after meeting you, but I guess that doesn't really matter... does it?!


Apparently though, we blogged...

not once,

not twice,

not thrice,

but four times.

Geez, no wonder we didn't fit anything else in that day!
