I got to meet K*ris Allen!!!!!
He went to Rwanda with TOMS shoes & Bridge2Rwanda in late March, early April to hand out shoes to kids who are in desparate need. After that trip, he flew home to Arkansas to participate in TOMS Barefoot Bash & "A Day Without Shoes."
On Wednesday, April 7th, he spoke about his trip at Heifer International's Barefoot Bash. A bunch of my friends (the ones I've met over Twitter) & I went.
K*ris & his friend/band mate, Cale, performed 3 songs: "Live Like We're Dying", "Man in the Mirror" & "Send Me All Your Angels."
Afterwards, he greeted fans & took pictures.
And, I think I finally feel comfortable enough to tell you guys what I've been wanting to tell you for almost a year now.
I'm doing K*ris' American Idol scrapbook!!!!
(And, if I'm being honest, I actually met K*ris the night before this event at his parents house. But, I don't feel comfortable blogging about that. Not because it wasn't FABULOUS...because it was. It's just that when this all started, I promised his mama that I would keep any conversations, meetings, etc private.)
I will tell you this. My life is so much different now than it was this time last year. A good different. A kind of different I could never have imagined.
