Biggest Dream Achieved!

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.”S2S070818SouixFallsM&G(2of17).jpg


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!


Xoxo, Lexie

 

 

 

 

 

Nashville

This was written as the plane was taking off from the BNA airport last week. It is crazy to think it has already been a week since I was in my favorite city. I miss it so much and am already attempting to plan more trips in the near future. I don’t think I will ever be able to stay away from Nashville or the South.

Enjoy!


As I take off right now, I can’t help but feel as if this entire trip and experience still feels like a complete dream. I am not sure when it is going to hit me that this trip was real and I truly did experience all of these precious moments. I have dreamt of this experience since I was a young girl and as the altitude is climbing just past 36,000 feet I am overcome with so many emotions.

They are ranging from an abundance of gratitude, slight sadness, extreme happiness, total astonishment and so many more that I am unable to describe at this very moment in time. Never in a million years did I think I would fall in love with a city the way I have fallen in love with Nashville.

I met so many amazing individuals while I was in the city. I had the opportunity to attend a benefit concert hosted by Brad Paisley and his wife that featured numerous artists including Charles Esten, Lindsey Ell, Chase Bryant and a surprise appearance from Darius Rucker. I was also lucky enough to experience the amazing beginning of the CMA Fest, which I will be back for in the near future. The crowds swarmed for the free food, music, and fun activities in front of the Symphony Hall. I was able to get a Backstage Tour of the Grand Ole Opry, see the exhibits at the Country Music Hall of Fame, take numerous other tours and seek out the popular spots and hidden gems throughout the city. All in all, there is simply not enough words to describe or share all of the moments I soaked in during my incredible time there.

Capture
Music has the ability to capture my soul.

Nashville, you captured my heart in every single aspect of what a city should have. Not only are you the home of Country music but you are crawling at all hours of the day. You have such unique areas within an arm’s reach of downtown and you are everything I have ever wanted in a city and more.

Flower Truck!
Amelia’s Flower Truck!

I truly believe that at this time in my life I will eventually call Nashville home. I am young, I have the desire to travel. I desire to have a fresh start and learn to live outside of a city I have grown up in and never left. The south has my heart. God is in control and who knows where this life will take me, however, with much prayer and guidance I pray that this dream of calling Nashville home will happen one day.

For every moment I was in that city something continuously called out to me as I would stand in one place, take a deep breath, look around and soak it all in. I know leaving Idaho would be an interesting journey and that I would deeply miss those I consider beloved friends and those I consider family, however, I have come to believe that if it is something you heart desires and it is part of God’s plan for you, together y’all will make it happen. I believe that it could change me in a way that nothing else could. Idaho is incredible but I believe I would regret the decision of never attempting to live in a city outside of Boise or in a city that I dearly desire to live in. With all of this being said I am so grateful God has granted me this life I have and I owe all of my adventures and experiences to Him.

Let me know in the comments below what your favorite thing about Nashville is and if you are ever contemplating traveling there PLEASE DO IT! I am more than willing to help you find the best places and give you a few pointers. It is the most incredible city I have ever been to. Until next time…

Xoxo, Lexie
