Who Is Your Never?

So, the cake class! Lots of fun. And the best part, besides making yummy cakes? My friend, Staci, is in it as well. I didn't even know she was going to be there. It was like that moment in college when you're in a class of complete strangers, and then that one familiar face arrives and you realize how great it's going to be.

Staci and I became acquaintances when we were planning our weddings. We were both on a local board on The Knot. Because of Staci's recommendation, we ended up with an awesome and affordable DJ at our wedding. And, for that, I will be eternally grateful to Staci.

Last night before bed, I was listening to some music I had downloaded. Blue October has released a new album and there is a song called "My Never" which is incredible. (I have to apologize for the link, though. It's the only one I can find that isn't completely awful since I just discovered that the song will be in the "New Dawn" movie.) Beautiful, moving lyrics, completely relatable. I think everybody has a "Never." Someone who didn't work out. A relationship that was wrong in the timing. A person you were sure you would end up with, but you didn't. And, when I look back, I am so happy that things worked out the way they did. I would gladly trade my never for my forever. But I'm also glad that my never was in my life at one point. All the twists and turns, the somersaults...they were worth it, to get me onto the path I needed to be on. To make me who I am.

If you are in Columbus, you may read The Other Paper. I have some friends on the cover.

Don't they look great? Like they are having such a good time? They were partying after the New Kids On The Block concert last Friday. I love their custom-made t-shirts. No, I don't know all of them, but the ones I do are so freaking hilarious, so very nice, and let's face it, so darn cute. Makes me almost sorry I wasn't a fan of New Kids back in the day.

Shout out to my friend, Randy! He turns 35 today. Happy Birthday, buddy!! May you get to watch all the Master's Tournament you can stand this weekend.

thanks for the shout-out chica! :) I hear you about your never. Whether it be of the male or female variety, friend, boyfriend or girlfriend, I'm glad they were in my life for that period of time. You and I wouldn't be the people we are today without them.
