if you know me in real life...

what was your first impression of me?

if its 'i thought you were a total bitch' or something, don't be afraid...

i want to know honestly. i mean... hello?

oh and do you still hold that impression... or has it changed?

my first impression of you...was that you were the sweetest thing.
Because you were sitting in the coffee shop at the table with me, and kept begging me to play more songs, even though I was done with .."my set" haha.

I thought you were young (cuz ya were) and maybe a bit forgetful because you left your purse behind, but I didn't think of it as a negative thing..since I'm the most forgetful person ever.

I think my view has changed significantly because when I first knew you, you had all kinds of things on your myspace page--like how you hate books and love celebrities (not that there's anything wrong with that) that made it seem like you were less thoughtful about things than you really are.

Like how you are really really smart, and a great problem solver, and how you read and researched so much about natural birth--these things would have surprised me when I first met you.

Not that how I thought you were was bad..if that makes sense.

So, I don't know if that's because you have really changed a lot (I think you have--I think marriage, becoming a mother and going through chidlbirth changes all of us) or if I just had a false view of you in the beginning--probably some of both.

Either way, I can't imagine NOT knowing you;)

Beth McDermott said...

my thoughts upon meeting you were:

whoa super hot...

oh, Seth's wife...

ok, Muslim?...

definitely Muslim and trying to convert me...

I need a drink...

I think I walked outside dizzy from our first conversation and stumbled into some bushes. Onlookers might have thought I had one too many to drink. Little did they know I had just experienced what would be the first of many conversations with Skylana.

...you still make my head spin.

i met you once at a watashi wa thing, I think they were leaving to go on a tour or something, but I don't really remember it cause we were both really young.

The second time, I remember thinking you were young and very strong, you knew what you wanted and I thought you really didn't care what anyone else thought.

Then I was feeling hurt cause we drove to see you, and meet you really, and it felt like you didn't want to hang out or get to know us, you just wanted to go hear the band playing. I thought maybe you either didn't like us, didn't care about family, or...I don't know. I was hurt.

I felt like you were exclusive and it was hard to get to know you... until we hung out in Bend and we really talked for probably the first time and I found out that some things I had said had hurt you and that maybe it was both of us that contributed to the weirdness or whatever you'd call it.

Now, I can't imagine anyone better suited for Seth. And when, if ever we do see each other, I love hanging out with you. I think you are a woman with strong opinions and convictions, you're loyal, and a seeker of truth, which are traits of significance.

Oh, and also I think your beautiful, always have. So there's that.

When I first met you we were at Meg and Jims and you were on the phone. You were in the middle of planning your wedding and were talking to someone about the flowers or something. I just remember thinking you were wild and talked alot. But beautiful and I was looking forward to getting to know you. I really didn't know what to expect.

Now it has been about 3 years or so and you have grown so much. Marriage and becoming a mother, major life changes. It has been so great to be a part of your life and get to watch you become the woman you are today.

Also, I love you, always have and always will!
