So I kept looking at this girl in Starbucks because I knew her from somewhere. I am really, really good with faces, but not always great at remembering names or being able to remember where I know someone from. I decided it must be that we were both there a lot with our laptops and didn’t think much more about it until she was walking past me and she paused.

“Are you Angie Smith?” 
“Yes, and where do I know you from? I have been racking my brain trying to remember?”
She introduced herself as Lindsay Ferrier, and reminded me of her blog, (Suburban Turmoil) which won as the “editor’s choice” in the same category I was in for the recent “Divine Caroline” contest.  
A few weeks later I ended up going to her house to tape the clip you will see below, and I timed it.
We live 3 minutes from each other.
So here we are, nominated in this national contest with thousands of other bloggers, and we both win in the same category, yet we have never met. 
It gets even stranger.
She and her hubby attend Cross Point Church (which, according to Kate, is also known as the church where “Mr. Peaches”  is the Pastor).
They happened to miss the Sunday that Audrey’s story was presented, but knew a little about me because of it.
Did I mention we live three minutes from each other?
She has a hysterical blog, and is and incredibly gifted writer-I don’t know her all that well but I hope I get to connect more, now that we realize the other exists, and that the commute is, uummmm, reasonable.
I thought you all might want to see this, and I have been so busy on my proposal (I PROMISE this post took less than 10 minutes, Greg 🙂 !!!!!) that I haven’t written much…

Note the scarf as well…
Also, Todd had my wedding diamond reset in the most gorgeous setting. We had talked about doing it for our ten year anniversary, but this seemed the year to mark, and we found exactly what we were looking for. It is really special to me, and my next post will tell you a little bit more about why (whenever my proposal is turned in and life has returned to semi-normal again).
Ok, back to the writing. And please keep praying…it has proved to be one of the most emotional times of this whole journey. I know the Lord will sustain me, but I feel so weighted down by the grief. I am missing her so much…
Love to you all 🙂
