lord I don’t even know where to begin but honestly this was the best day of my life by far. I never knew if I would ever have the chance to meet hope solo but I am beyond grateful to have had this opportunity. she is without a doubt the kindest, most genuine person I have ever met in my entire life. she really takes so much time with her fans and cares so much about what everyone has to say and listens to intently it’s so sweet I love her so much. when I first got there I met up with @in-solo-we-trust and we were waiting for @nardleylloyd to meet up with us and honestly I’m surprised the 3 of us held it together. after being able to jump ahead in line the day started moving by faster and eventually the people working in the store were asking us all to stand back and kind of form a line because she was going to be walking out soon and honestly when she did I thought I was gonna drop dead because she looked so good and it was so cute because she was giving everyone high fives and kneeled down to interact with the little kids next to us and she said she missed her fans which made me want to cry honestly. and then she held my hand for a moment and i nearly died on the spot like she really came for my whole life before I even met her. the entire time I’m waiting to meet her im just shaking and I’m so anxious because what do you even say to the person who has had the biggest influence on your life and who you look up to and admire more than anyone? I’m just trying not to cry and die the entire time but eventually when it was my turn to meet her I accidentally blurted out “oh god” and I’m 99% sure she heard but I don’t even care ahsjajdkaks. I literally had no idea what to say at first so I just thanked her for tweeting me on Halloween and she laughed and said “you’re the lucky one!” and I rambled on for a bit then I told her I got her a gift and she was like “aw its a late Christmas gift!” I said she didn’t have to open it right then if she didn’t have time but I at least wanted to explain to her why I got her what I did. (since hope has always talked about how it was her number one goal and biggest dream to win the World Cup and that she spent her whole life chasing a World Cup, and hoped that one day when she retires she will have become a World Cup champion, I got her a wanderer bracelet with the coordinates of where she won the World Cup and became a World Cup champion because those bracelets are to symbolize a place that is more important to you than anywhere else in the world and since her biggest dream came true, I thought it was fitting.) anyways she asked “do you want me to open it now?” and I said “if you have time!” and she said “CAN I open it?” and it was so cute because it’s literally a gift for her and she’s asking if she can open it lmao. so I wrote a note that said “because you said it was always your biggest dream to win the World Cup…” and then I explained to her why I got her that and she was like “awww!” and was so excited she was asking about it more and was like “so these are the coordinates in Vancouver of the stadium?” and I said yes and she like dipped down and turn to me with a big smile and said “no way! that’s so cool and so thoughtful. That is really sweet I really appreciate that!” and thanked me for the gift and was so sweet the entire time. I handed her the letter I wrote her after that and she was like “is this gonna make me cry? as long as it doesn’t make me cry!” and I told her that I cried while writing it so that speaks for itself and we both laughed about it. then after that she gave me a hug and I thought I was gonna die she gives good hugs but honestly I held her hand and hugged her in the same day and managed to survive? i truly cannot believe. but then she asked if she could sign my book so I handed her her book and she asked if she should sign the cover and I said that was fine and she was smiling so big when she handed it back and I told her thank you and she said it again and then i asked to take a photo with her but I’m so much shorter than she is and I told her I was so short and she laughed and grabbed my arm and moved it around like a selfie stick until we were both in the frame and I could take the picture and she held it the whole time. afterwards I thanked her again and told her to have a nice day and ahhhhh! I truly don’t know how I made it through this day but it was the best day of my life and I’m never going to get over this I literally love her more than life itself she is so genuine and sweet and I’m so thankful I was able to meet her because I literally have never wanted anything more in my entire life she means the world to me and being able to give her my letter telling her everything that I’ve ever wanted to say to her and personally thanking her is incredibly important to me. she really is the greatest person and she deserves the whole entire world and it was so nice to see her so happy and see so many people come out to see her and support her and you could really tell how much she appreciated everyone I LOVE HER SO MUCH

Hola! Just letting you know we’re still alive.

I’m sorry I haven’t been posting, I’m just being caught up in pretty much everything. But anyways, this little nugget is 1 month old today! <3 I swear it just flew by so quickly. She’s just being such a good baby. She had her first photoshoot a couple of days ago and the photos turned out so cute. I can’t wait to show you *if only my laptop hadn’t been stolen from my car so I could actually retouch the photos!! I swear I’m still not used to NYC. As much as I love our penthouse I just can’t adapt to this type of living. I’m used to living in suburban gated areas haha.
