I look at these pictures now and it’s like I can hardly believe I was there. I was standing front row at my second Hanson concert, my first having been in 2007. I’m still fighting to find the world to describe my feelings and I keep coming back to surreal. I was chosen as one of eight hnet.com members for a m&g. I had NO idea they chose so few people having met other celebs in the past and there being large groups of people. And then standing in front of the guys I literally grew up with for the first time, there’s just no words for what that meant to me. They’ve been with me for over half my life and are one of the few things left I have from Before. They were with me in the After, my lifeline after losing my grandma. I will never be able to express how much November 20th, 2013 means to me.
I also had the opportunity to take my first walk, even though I did it in shoes. And I had the chance to meet a couple of twitter friends for the first time. It turned out to be even more of an awesome time than I expected because I got to meet friends and also share this experience with my mom who’s been with my since MMMBop.
I am so thankful for this experience. I feel like my 11 year old self died happy when I went to bed early Thursday morning and I feel justified for sticking with my favorite band even more now.
I suppose that’s enough of my mushy rambling, but I at least know that other fans can relate in some form or fashion to this. I’ll be with these boys until the end.
