April 28, 2007: I was in the middle of finals and a week away from graduating college. I decided a day trip to Andrews, NC to see some friends in a band play a show would be a welcome break from studying. I made the (underestimated) 4 hour drive to the mountains of NC not knowing I would be meeting my husband for the first time. Christopher tells it different, he says he noticed me pretty early on...I really didn't notice him until the end of the night (in my defense his band wasn't the one I was going to see). He told funny stories that I still remember to this day and he says he still remembers what I was wearing. Little did we know we would see each other again.
September 23, 2007: I had moved back home after graduation and was working with the youth group at church. Christopher was still touring with Fighting Instinct. The youth pastor brought them to our Sunday night service for a concert and I wasn't sure if they would remember me. I knew I would ask the first member I saw if they did and guess who just happened to be that member. After that night we became friends on MySpace (remember that site?) but didn't communicate, until October.
October 11, 2007: I was up early that day because I had a Hanson concert to go to and a chance to walk a mile with the band. Once I got inside the venue and the show started I looked down from my spot on the balcony and saw someone I thought I recognized...but there was no way he would be HERE, much less by himself (which was how it appeared). I kept looking throughout the night but never approached him to confirm my suspicions. The next morning I had a message on MySpace from the night before and sure enough it was him. He had heard I would be there and he had to take his sister and her friends.
That conversation hasn't ended...
