Another milestone

So last night I had the opportunity to see the first ever video from my beloved Sugarland, which was very emotional for me. I cried the whole time I watched it, thinking the whole time while I'm looking at it "That's my friend right there singing... You have to understand for (those of you that don't know) that Jennifer and I have been good friends for almost 10 years now. I met her at a friend's place downtown, and we've been friends ever since. I've said before that I know the meanings of all of her songs because I've been present for some of the experiences she writes about. It's been very wierd over the years keeping separate who she is as a friend from who she is as a performer, because as a friend she's just this gentle little spirit and when she hits the stage she owns it. I love what she does musically, but when I think of her randomly I think of conversations and laughter, and sometimes even shared tears. So to see her in a music video is quite overwhelming. I cannot describe how proud of her I am, it's beyond words.
