I can still remember that moment like it was yesterday. Heart flutters. Anticipation. Excitement.
Maybe it’s not what you’d expect, but that’s what I felt the moments right before I knew I was going to meet and touch owls in real life.
I love birds and I am especially attracted to owls. I think they’re beautiful, mysterious, majestic creatures. I have a tattoo of an owl on my arm and way too many pendants. Anyway, all this to say, I love me some owls. So you can imagine meeting them in person was beyond what I could handle.
I cried. I am not the biggest crier (I mean I am) but I cried! I was so excited that I cried. I think you can see the excitement in my eyes in the photos that follow below. We all remember Kristin Bell’s meltdown when she met a sloth. If you didn’t catch that video, please take a second to see it and you’ll understand what I mean.
