It finally happened

Guys.  This last weekend?  Something incredible happened.  After over a year and a half of reading each others' blogs, commenting and emailing back and forth, and even sending each other Christmas cards last year, I finally met Karissa!

 And truly, it was awesome.  She was performing with a chorale in Denver, and so Ammon and I went to cheer her on.  And wow.  Seriously y'all, it was great.  Somehow, the only 2 seats left for the performance were in the front row across the aisle from one another.  So Ammon did silly things like this for the entire first half of the show:

It worked out perfectly, because I had the best view when Karissa was up there doing her solo.  Bloggers have gotta support other bloggers, you know.  I'm pretty sure people thought I was crazy, photographing a choral performance, but I just roll that way.

After the Chorale had their part of the show, the Symphony came on, and then there was a joint performance.  At the intermission, they were able to find us 2 seats together, which was incredible.  Thank you season ticket holders who didn't make it.  We appreciated your seats greatly.  After all of that was over, it was finally time to meet Karissa!  It ended up being super brief, because it was already 10pm, and Ammon and I had never had the chance to eat dinner.  However, it was still awesome, and I am so glad we went.  It's crazy to me that for living only an hour and a half apart, and with her only a few minutes from my in-laws, that we haven't managed to meet up before now.

What continues to amaze me is how not awkward it is to meet other bloggers.  I realized it last month when I met Nerky and Cailtin, and it was reaffirmed this time too.  You all are just as awesome in person as you are on the internets.  I love that.

I also love when I can talk about blogger friends with non-bloggers, and feel less awkward, because now I've actually met those blogger friends in person.  So the moral of this story is that I want to meet ALL of you now.  Ammon had better do REALLY well at his job, so that he has enough money for all of our travel expenses  =).

Anyhow, it's Monday, so let's not make this any longer than it needs to be.  I hope you all have a wonderful day!
