Happy Anniversary...

Happy Anniversary, NKOTB!

It was one year ago today that New Kids On The Block were on the Today Show officially announcing their reunion. And after the Today Show, they came home to Boston to meet fans at Kiss108.

I was barely able to focus on work knowing they were on tv. I got several calls from family members that day wanting to know if I knew. As if I didn't...please.

The group's original reunion plan was to record a few songs, do a few shows featuring the old stuff along with some new songs, and just have fun with it. Some were hoping to do a full album where others were waiting to see what happened. I don't think they expected any of this to happen. They didn't expect their fans, both old & new, to come out in droves. They didn't expect the overwhelming response. They didn't expect it, but we gave it. 150%!

Who would have thought that one year later, I would have gone to 6 concerts, one overnight excursion in NYC, and planning on going to more summer shows?!

I didn't, I don't think the guys expected the level of reception they've received either. To quote Jon: "who would have thought that reuniting would have been this much fun!"

But man, I'm so glad that's how the year went and who knows what this year holds...I'm extremely grateful for this reunion and the opportunity it's allowed me to be ME again. For the new friends I've made. For the ability to be connected to Donnie on a different level...Words can't express how much this means to me and how much I'll treasure every single moment of this past New Kids filled year.

One of them performed at one of my sorority's formals a few years ago... how far they've come!
