Meet Matt

Meet our new friend Matt. He was wandering through TVA with his travel pack and carrying his guitar. Stuart just happened to be playing his as we were walking out so there was an immediate connection between the "fellow musicians". They started talking and Stuart immediately asked if he was looking for a place to stay and invited him to stay with us that night. We parted ways having exchanged numbers and promised to call when we were back home.



Matt came back that night and they had a little jam session. When it was time to sleep we got the couch cushions out... Not the best accommodations but hopefully better than his sleeping on the beach the night before. In the short time that he was here Matt made so many new friends and wants to move out here. We hope that he's able to work that out.





Today we said good bye (hopefully not for long) as Matt left for the airport. Here he is with all his gear leaving looking just like he did the day we met!




We couldn't let him go before we took some pictures together and of course I made him do a little 10 minute photo shoot. We had him sit down and just jam for a sec. You can see those on my PhotoBlog.


PS did you notice how tall he is? He makes Stuart who is not short look little... haha! He's 6 ft. 7 in... I asked.

Hey Malia- This is Rachel from Josh and Us. :)
I came across your blog through Ashley's blog (we know her family here on the mainland).
Hope you don't mind me peeking in on you. I loved it there when I visited last summer- so, I can live vicariously through you.
You have a unique blog and I LOVE your photography!

Hi, Nice pictures/good subject. I thought you were going to tell us that he is somebody famous. Nice looking guy. (or maybe it's just your great photo work)
