So, that's exactly what I did! On September 21st, 2012 I did just that.. To try and break the ice I decided to only text her, this way it wasn't so awkward for the both of us.
This is what my text read:
I hear you have an amazing service project for me??? :)
And with that both parties ran with it! We were immediately in contact with each other and talked for so long. It was amazing! It really reassured me that the decision I was about to make was the right one!
