So this will basically be a scatterbrained post full of giddiness and exclamation marks. Because there are THREE very exciting things about to happen, and of COURSE I have to tell you all about them because that just wouldn't be fair of me otherwise, no?
One of them is in two days, one of them in two weeks, and one of them in three months. We'll start with the one in three months.
So, a few weeks ago my mum was looking up information about the county fairs in our area to see if any country singers we liked would be coming. You know, just for kicks and giggles. And guess who we found out is coming to one of them, just two hours from my home.
I'll give you a hint. His first name starts with an H and his last name starts with an H. He plays thirty different instruments and he's probably not a whole lot older than you and I and he's pretty much the most adorable person on the planet.
GUYS I MIGHT BE GOING TO SEE HUNTER HAYES!!!!!!!!!!
Excuse me while I jump and scream and go crazy for a moment.
I say "might" because it's not a completely sure deal yet -- that is, I don't have tickets, but I'm going to get them this weekend. There is NO WAY Hunter Hayes comes within two hours' driving distance of me and I don't go see him. ;-) THIS IS CRAZY, PEOPLE! I'm going to a Hunter Hayes concert! I can't believe things like this actually happen in my life. I got to see Sara Evans last winter, and then JJ Heller in April, and now this?!? And right when I'm on my way to becoming a full-fledged Hunter Hayes fan too. It's just perfect. I'm so grateful and so happy and so excited.
(Oh yeah, and I'm allllllllso probably going to see Lee Brice and Dustin Lynch too. *FREAKS OUT* But we won't talk about all that right now because I know you all can only handle so much. Wise, aren't I.)
The second thing is...
There are only two weeks left until I meet my best friend in the whole entire world in person, face-to-face, for the first time ever.
ONLY TWO WEEKS GUYS.
(If you're not sure what I'm talking about, read this post.)
To say I'm looking forward to it would be a gross understatement. To say I'm excited is a little better....to say I'm so psyched up I'm about to internally combust at any moment is a more fitting description. There are times when I can't even believe it's going to happen. Naomi and I have known each other for three years now; three years it's been blogs, emails, letters, Christmas and birthday packages, texts, everything. It's been Naomi & Emma, Best Friends.
And finally, in two weeks we'll be together.
HOW IS THIS EVEN HAPPENING.
|Yes, this is the best selfie I could manage with my dinky little camera. I do my best.|
And lastly...Emma's going on a trip! Over four states, across the Mississippi river, for six days, with my aunt and uncle and cousin, and I leave in two days. I'm bursting with excitement. ;-) I didn't used to like traveling that much, but in the past few years I've been more eager to leave my little valley and go adventuring. Right now I'm very much in need of a journey to spark my inspiration, so this couldn't be happening at a better time. I plan to take lots of pictures, see lots of interesting things, be very adventurous, and have the time of my life. :-)
Oh yeah, and I might actually get to go to Jesse James' house and stick my finger in the bullet hole in the wall where Bob Ford shot him. Something to cross off my bucket list. :-)
So, I shall see you all when I return! Have a lovely week, dear readers!
