A Tip From A Friend Thursday was Taylor’s night at LP. I had had a very long day of attending to personal things but I was so excited to see Taylor. My dad dropped me off outside LP a little before doors opened. I ended up in front of my friends Heather and Brittany and her little sister Faith who I had talked to online and was very very glad I got to meet.
Sadly I had to miss Luke Bryan’s set to do the photo line but as it was basically the same set as last year, so, I wasn’t too bummed. As they brought us into the tunnel I got more and more excited and more and more nervous. I hadn’t seen her in almost a month, it was like it was my first show all over again.
We made it to the front of the stage before Love Story ended. I did my best to stay out of sight so I could stay down there as long as possible. The more she sang the more excited I got. There was Taylor, right in front of me; like nothing had changed. It hadn’t been a month since the last time I saw her, she had been there the whole time.
All of a sudden I realize I wasn’t just staring at her, she was staring at me with the BIGGEST smile on her face! I looked around behind me to see if she was staring, smiling at anyone else but it was just me. She had recognized me! In a stadium of 65K people and she was able to place my face. It was a crazy, surreal moment I will never forget.
Worth The Wait When I finally got kicked out of the photo line I just found a seat near the stage to enjoy the rest of her set including her surprise performance of Highway Don’t Care with Tim and Keith. I was afraid I would miss too much if I ran to my seat and I was afraid to attempt the photo line again for fear of missing the end of her set. In retrospect, I would’ve just missed WANEGBT which I could’ve afforded to miss but I didn’t want to. Although it was a short set, it was everything I needed in that moment. You don’t realize how much you miss her until she isn’t there anymore. It is a very strange thing.
If you want more of a rundown of the rest of my week I can give you one, I just figure, as this was the highlight, there really is no need for the rest of the week! I have missed you all so very much and thank you all for your patience!
Thanks for reading, thanks for caring.
