My other family.
So I know I have mentioned before that I practically lived in Dallas, well this post is about this summer and getting to see my other family again as well. Enter Jacki and Ty. Well Jacki was quite literally like one of my best friends. I know crazy because she is sooooo much older *wink*. Ty was my first agent. He's the one that got me into this craziness. He saw me when I was 11 and said, "I am going to have my eye on you. If you grow taller I am going to want represent you." At the time I thought who is this creepy old man and what is he talking about. He did approach me at church and he was married to a Fair so I figured he couldn't be too creepy. Two years later and having completely forgotten about the previous encounter sure enough he asked me to come down that summer and do a test to see if I was photogenic and would be able to work in the industry. My parents agreed and fast forward 17 years later we are still friends. Sadly, I only got to see Ty at church as he was working when I went up to visit the rest of the family. When I first went down to stay with them Blaine was just 5 months old so to see him entering his senior year of High School made me feel really old.
