This isn’t a post I would normally share, however, I wanted to share this one for myself. I want it to serve as a reminder of the greatest day of my life and one I will truly never forget.
On July 8th, 2018, the day I had been counting down to finally came around. I had traveled more than 20 hours to meet someone whose music and example has helped me through so many moments both good and bad.
I had the privilege of a lifetime to meet Faith Hill and Tim McGraw during their 2018 leg of the Soul2Soul tour. It was by far the best show I have ever been to. Faith and Tim along with their entire crew made the VIP experience more incredible than I ever thought it would be. Directly after the meet and greet, as I was shaking and crying with excitement and happiness, I was so surprised to learn that the autogenerated ticket that I got when I purchased this package had placed me directly in front of Faith’s entry point onto the stage.
The show is filled with energy, power, incredible vocals, and an endless amount of love shared between these two lovebirds. I am headed to their show again tonight and I can’t help but feel so lucky to see them once again.
Below I will share my feelings and thoughts that I wrote directly after the meet and greet and show! Oh, and of course my cute meet and greet photos will be included!
I shared this on my Instagram the day after I had met them.
“I don’t think it will ever fully hit me that last night happened and my biggest dream came true. Last night will forever be engraved on my heart. I truly don’t think people understand how much this experience means to me. Faith’s music has been something I have leaned on and grasped to through every good and bad moment in life. It was a constant when nothing else was. My biggest dream in life came true last night on July 8th, 2018. I got to meet her face to face. I was the first in line and had to stand in the empty meet & greet room until they appeared from behind the curtains. The only thing I could think about was how insanely gorgeous she was. I have always seen photos but never thought a human could be that beautiful! I wore a dressy gown and heels and right as she walked in she exclaimed: “you are so beautiful sweetheart, what’s the special occasion?” I said the occasion was meeting her and she went straight a hug. I also got lucky enough to get a solo photo snapped with her. I woke up this morning and could still smell her rose scented perfume, I sat there wondering when it is going to hit me like a ton of bricks that I met one of the biggest role models in my life. She is so real and authentic and her example in everything she does pushes me to be a better and stronger woman every single day. Faith, I am completely mesmerized by you and am so grateful I got to stand right in front of where you performed on stage last night. Until we meet again…I love you Faith Hill & thank you for making this the greatest day of my life, forever and always.
Xoxo, Lexie ***Also, I have had so many people dm, text, call, and comment saying that I could pass as Faith’s daughter and let’s just say if that isn’t the biggest compliment idk what is.”
My meet and greet experience:
I was the first one in line tonight and Aubrey was the sweetest at calming my nerves. I talked to her about her birthday and the Salt Lake City show next week. When it was finally time some of the staff help open the curtain and Faith walked in first and let me just tell you…FAITH IS EVEN MORE BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON OH MY GOSH! Faith was the first to walk in and see me and was like “oh my gosh you are so beautiful sweetheart, what’s the special occasion?” And I said “you”. I was so awestruck that I practically forgot my name for a few seconds. She goes “awe, aren’t you just the sweetest thing” and then went straight for the hug. She said, “My name is Faith, it’s so nice to meet you”. Tim also introduced himself like that and asked me what my name was. It’s so sweet how they make the m&g’s so intimate. Faith’s hug was everything I could have ever wished for and more. Tim’s handshake was amazing and I got to get two. I was able to snag a photo with the both of them and one with just my girl Faith. We lined up for the photo and she goes you want to be in the middle. I said of course & then I looked her on the eyes after the photo and we kept talking. She then pointed at the camera as if we were going to take another picture. I said, “wait, can I get a photo with just you too?” She said “of course!” Y’all HER HUGS ARE AMAZING and she smells SO GOOD & now my dress smells like her. I was so starstruck and could barely get out any more words but Faith was so sweet about it. We talked a little more and then Faith gave me one more hug and Tim gave me a hug/handshake. My entire life is complete. I have met the woman that continually makes me strive to be a better human each and every day and it was more than I could’ve ever asked for. So damn blessed that I was able to get this opportunity and I will never ever take it for granted. Faith & Tim, I LOVE YOU❤️You are truly my heroes and I am ready to scream every single song at the top of my lungs.
I just wanted to say how grateful I am for their music and the power that it has. Faith’s music makes me feel so empowered and her example only exemplifies that empowerment more. I am so blessed that I was able to save up the money to make this opportunity possible. I worked to make my biggest dream come true and it was the greatest decision I have ever made. If you ever get the chance to witness their gifts in person, don’t let it pass you by.
I will remember this all:
“FOR THE REST OF [MY] LIFE”!
About to head to my final show of the 2017-2018 Soul2Soul tour right now. So many mixed emotions yet still so excited! I will keep you updated!
