I was so thrilled when I went to check out the new site to see the first video profile was of my good friends Aaron and Emily Sherinian. Emily and I met our senior year of college (the same time I met Jonathan.) After graduation we travelled back to her home in NYC in her little black Civic with no air conditioning (it was June and not pretty). Then we headed off to travel Europe together. Such great memories. Getting lost in the middle of the Pyrenees in France with no franks left and the ensuing melt down in the train station, signing harmonies on tons of trains, hiking Cique Terre, seeing the David ... I could go on forever.
Aaron I met my freshman year when I volunteered to help him in his campaign to be the student body president. Only when he told me where he lived to go to a campaign meeting did I learn he was my brother's roommate. We became friends and when I moved to DC to go to law school I was so comforted to see Aaron at church. It was like having a big brother out there to watch out for me.
I remember talking to Emily on the phone that first year of law school. She lived in NYC then. I was saying how I wished I could like Aaron because he was SUCH a great guy but that he was just too much like a big brother to me. She then asked if I thought she would like him. It took me about 2 seconds to see that idea would work out rather nicely.
I set them up the next time she came in town. They hit it off so well that I got phone calls from both of them asking me if I thought the other would be too freaked out if they sent flowers to thank them for the weekend! Needless to say they both received flowers that Monday from the other.
I miss them. I need to get back out to DC. It has been too long. You should go check out their profile page if you get a chance. They are simply AMAZING. And I LOVE them. Watching their video made me miss them. You can see it HERE.
Well go check it out and let me know what you think - please.
