Nashville, TN - March 1st, 2002
Ten years ago today I got lost in Nashville trying to find my friend Summer at a recording studio on Music Row. I pulled over and parked in front of a courtyard apartment building until she could come find me.
She arrived and said "This guy I know lives there, we should go say hi."
To which I said, "No, I'm hungry and moody, let's just go eat."
She was having none of it so we went in to say hello. The guy offered me a frozen pizza that I refused then invited himself to dinner with us. We spent the rest of the evening pretending to be music executives while Summer worked her magic at a recording artist conference. (People kept asking if we were brother and sister... awkward - we just met!) Then we danced salsa until the wee hours of the morning. At the end of the night he asked to borrow my phone, I let him, he called himself from it and that's how he got my number which he called the very next day to set up our first date. And the rest is history so they say...
Why did I post a photo of me with Summer you ask? Well who do you think was behind the camera silly? It's the only one I have from that night and I love it so - we owned the world and my life was about to change more than I could ever imagine. Happy 10 Year Day We Met Anniversary Alex!!
Where does 10 years go? Like a blink I tell you!
