Happy Valentine’s Day, Archies!

Happy Valentine’s Day to each and every one of you! And to David Archuleta, Mr. Funny Valentine, himself!

My phone surprised me (as it often does, lol) with a ready-made “memories” video compilation of some of my OG David tour photos and I wanted to share with you guys because many of you are in it! So please check it out above!

Sorry, you’ll need to turn your head sideways for some of them, hahaha.

Man, where have these 14 years gone??!! These pics go back to the VERY beginning… Refnaf and I meeting for the first time in the autograph line before the American Idol Tour show in Toronto back in 2008 with my cheesy handmade sign welcoming David to Canada (which I still have, btw … can’t bring myself to toss it in the recycle bin, lol).

Anywayyyyys, these pics bring back such great memories of all the fun we’ve had over these past years… there are shots from Ford Day! First solo tour! MoTab! Buffalo Jingle Jam or Kringle Klog or whatever it was called, hahaha.

And it’s been such a blessing to meet so many lovely and amazing people through being a fan of David’s — people who have become true friends. We’ve laughed together (a lot!), supported one another through some tough times, and been to places we never thought we would. (Schenectady, anyone? 🙂 )

If you see yourself in the video, shout out in the comments! And share some of your favourite memories, would love to hear them.

A big Valentine’s Day group hug to you all!!!



From the man himself 🙂

Hadn’t met any of you back then, but finally got to in recent years~ah, that magical night in Htfd and my first VIP, due to the kindness of those of you who know who you are…I finally got over my fangirl-fear, that night! Anyhoo…been so fun getting to know more peeps along the way.
    So many, many memories and true friendships. So many shows, so much fun.
    14 years, yikes! Grateful to still be on this train…Tks for posting this look back, Deb.
