For the month of November I’ve decided to post each day about a person or people who have influenced my life for good. There’s no way I could include each and every person in one month or even one year, and for that I hope you’ll forgive me. This year, especially, has brought an acute awareness of the kindness and generosity which surrounds me and my kids, so here’s one attempt at giving thanks.
5 – Kevin + Annie
These two. I tell you what.
They are two of the owners of Sodalicious, and I just can’t say enough about how much I adore them, not only as individuals, but also as a couple. Just the other night I saw them sitting on a couch at a friend’s house, and they had me sit between them so we could all cuddle. (That’s mostly true.)
I actually met Annie years ago on the set of something-or-other where she looked me up and down and gave me clothes to wear. (I wish she’d do that for me every day, AMIRITE.) I always hoped to be sent to Annie when I was on set. This process repeated itself a handful of times before I knew she was Sodalicious.
Kevin’s funny and clever and also graduated from high school in ’95, like me. Sometimes I’ll get an envelope from him with Smashing Pumpkins lyrics written on it to start out my day. He’s a hard worker, a smart businessman, and a good friend.
I love that picture of them. I think it was from the Neon Trees concert at UVU in June. That was a good day, and I remember seeing them there.
*raises cup, probably an El Doctoro* You’re good people, you two. Thanks for simultaneously being All Business and Totally Cool. I’m so grateful for all you’ve done, and continue to do, for me and, well (#NerdAlert) for Provo.
Thanks, Kevin + Annie. I love you.
