In 12 hours...

I'm going to meet her.
I'm excited, nervous, scared, anxious and elated.
I'm vulnerable. She's coming into my territory...I feel like nothing's clean enough, or new enough, or perfect enough.
I mean is she REALLY gonna go through Jude's closet or underwear drawer?
Its been a LOOOONG time coming.
Hundreds of emails, and phonecalls.
Its time.
I can't imagine loving her anymore than I already do,
but I'm sure I will.
I treasure our friendship.
She is going to be taking some MAJOR photographs of the Wren's nest.
So in 12 short hours I will see her.
And hug her.
Ok....
Must explain the cheese that is anxiously awaiting her arrival with the Cinnamon Toast Crunch, flowers, and new coffee mug.
One evening, I called her and we were just casually talking and the conversation goes as follows:

Ashley: So what ya cooking for dinner?
Amber: I don't know I just ate.
Ashley: Oh really...what did you eat?
Amber: A piece of cheese.

Dude...this has FOREVER been burned into my brain. Its hilarious. I know its cuz Amber weighs like 99.9 pounds, and I am the chubby girl...but come on!!!! A PIECE OF CHEESE? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? So...I bought her a block. This should last her the WHOLE damn weekend.
