Photos and a detailed update to come, but for the time being, I must relate an encounter which pretty much made my week.

So I go to church at my new ward on Sunday where, naturally, I introduce myself in Relief Society. After church ends, I'm making my way down the hall toward the exit when a girl turns to me and says, "Hi, Laura?"

Me: Yes!
Girl: I am a HUGE fan.
Me: ...what? [I am confused. I do not know anyone here. I have been here for 5 days. How can I already have a fan?]
Girl: I love your CD! I got really excited when you introduced yourself and I realized who you were.
Me: ...really? Thanks!

I think that New York and I are off to a rather auspicious beginning.


  1. That is an awesome story. Seriously. Jordan's cousin's name is Justin Ady...sometimes I think he goes to the family ward because singles wards yada yada yada. I think he somewhat participates in his ward though...he actually lives right across the quad from the Badgers...they hang out sometimes.

  2. ps when I hear that song by A Fine Frenzy, her voice reminds me of yours.

  3. hahaha. that's funny. look, you've got a new best friend at church already.

  4. That's awesome!! You are such a celebrity!!! I definitely think that this is a good karma for NY sign. Or whatever.

  5. Oh my gosh! So random! Anthony Strike did wear your T-shirt a lot in NYC. Maybe you have more fans than you know!

  6. You've got your very own Mel! Now you can talk about your fanbase.

  7. How did the New York Youth Symphony interview go? - Sam

  8. hahahahahaaha! it was me! and now we are best friends!

  9. You really are so dang cool! Can I live vicariously through you? Good for you big red!
