Sitting there in front of the computer, staring at a screen that had somehow just brought my wildest dreams to life in a matter of seconds, I found myself completely and utterly lost for words.

“Upgrade to VIP Tickets, including a ‘meet and greet’ with Rascal Flatts”

 Surely I was dreaming, I had to be dreaming.

Sure enough though, after wiping my eyes and reading that very sentence at least twenty times over, I came to the conclusion that I was not at all dreaming. I was in fact very, very much awake and this was very much reality.

As I sat there daydreaming, trying to process what exactly had just happened, it seemed that a flood of emotions had somewhat hit me all at once. Within a matter of seconds, tears were welling in my eyes and the sheer excitement that I was now feeling had reached a whole new level, it was like nothing I had ever felt before. Words could not even begin to describe it.

Twenty-one years of living and this was the very first time in my whole entire life that I had ever even come close to crying from excitement; this was obviously a pretty big deal. As you can imagine however, I did what any twenty-one year old girl would do. I quickly hid the tears, pulled myself together and acted as though I wasn’t about to breakdown in tears of excitement at any given moment.

When it comes to the real deal though, the moment when I am standing there face to face with Rascal Flatts themselves, I doubt very much that I will be able to hold it together at all.

I would say that odds are, screams will escape my mouth, tears will flow down my face and the whole world will know exactly how excited I am, because as far as memories in life go, I am fairly certain that this is going to be one of the magical ones. One of the ones that twenty years from now, I will still remember just like it were yesterday.


I must admit though, when I said that 2013 was going to be a good year, I never for a second expected that it was going to be this good. Just two months in and already, some of my wildest dreams are finding a way of coming true.

Life, you truly are wonderful.
