Next to the day I marry my best friend, July 13, 2011 will be the best day of my life. After nearly a decade of being a Grobanite, I finally got to meet Josh and it couldn't have come at a better time in my life. The last year we've dealt with financial issues (but who hasn't in this economy), major health issues, having to postpone our wedding indefinitely due to my fiance losing his job 2 weeks ago and his ex-wife taking him to court to try and change their divorce settlement.....and our luck seemed to just be getting worse.

I had given up on ever meeting Josh and so when I found out that I had won the M & G from FOJG, I almost lost it! I'm still struggling to believe that it happened and can't really put into words how it felt. Josh was so sweet and kind to a very nervous me! I couldn't find the words to tell him how much his music means to me, so I can only hope that my HUGE smile said it all. I also have to give a big shout out to Darren who spotted us in the crowd and moved us up to the 4th row a few songs into the set. We had a great view of Josh all night and it made the evening extra special. Man, this journal entry is disjointed, but like I said, I'm having trouble putting into words how I feel. All I can do is give a heartfelt thanks to FOJG, Darren, and of course Josh for a wonderful night.
