True story: I went to church with Carrie Underwood.
It was a warm, sunny Sunday at the end of July 2012. Ryan and I were still dating at the time, and we had traveled down to Nashville, TN, to visit his best friend and his best friend’s wife. They asked us if we wanted to go to GracePointe Church, and I was excited to experience some Nashville worship.
So as I sat there, surveying my surroundings, I noticed a blonde-haired woman sitting directly to my right in the next section over…and she looked awfully familiar. It took me a good minute to realize that I was staring at Carrie Underwood. (Let me tell you, she’s even more beautiful in person.)
