Not If, But When
Another bonus video for you today. Mat Kearney's new album came out recently so I of course bought it. This song is the kind of song that makes you want to clap your hands (especially since there is hand clapping IN the song)! Do you listen to his music? He rocks. I have had a crush on him for quite some time, mostly because of his singing/song-writing abilities. And he is cute, too!
But Mr. Kearney is off the market, so I will have to set my sights on someone else, I guess!
Do you know where he met his wife? Anthropologie, my friends. He said he was shopping for a gift for his sister. He locked eyes with this girl, and the rest, as they say, is history.
What a lucky girl - she probably got a cute purchase, like an apron, AND a husband out of a trip to Anthro.
It just goes to show - you never know where you will meet someone.
I used to talk about this with an aunt and she would tell me that she sometimes fantasized about meeting a man in the grocery store. She thought maybe one day she'd be reaching for a cantaloup at the same time as some great guy, and the rest, as they say, would be history.
What is the point of this post, you ask? The point is that life is full of surprises. I am sure Mrs. Kearney did not think she would meet her husband at Anthropologie, right? But she did.
And no, there have not been any surprise encounters with the man of my dreams, but I still remain hopeful. Who knows, he could be in Caribou when I order my coffee or at Lunds where I buy my groceries or he may ride up the 13 floors of my condo building with me one evening.
Maybe he's out there, maybe he isn't. Lately I've thought it's not a question of if I will meet him, it's a question of when. Either way, I will keep living life to the fullest... and I will certainly keep shopping at Anthropologie. ;)
If you are in a relationship, how did you meet your significant other? If you are single, where would like you like to meet your significant other? I think it would be cool to meet someone at a bookstore because then there would be a pretty good chance that we'd share a love of books.
