Dear Taylor, Love Rob

She's kiiiiind of a big fan.
Dear Taylor,

You've got a lot going on. Last month, a letter you wrote on your blog helped potentially millions of young musicians to get paid during Apple Music's 3-month free trial. Not to mention that you've been on a world tour spanning 7 countries and several continents since May. How you find the time for a 4th of July celebration with so many of your friends this past weekend is totally beyond me.

Anyhow, the reason I'm writing this is to let you know about your most incredible fan. She's my fiancée, and her name is Julia de Carlo. Last year, when your 1989 tour tickets went on sale, Julia decided she would have her bachelorette party at your concert that is happening tonight. She bought 5 tickets to the show the day they went on sale, and sadly she wasn't able to get 5 seats together (but the girls will work something out).

Almost immediately after those tickets were bought, I decided that I needed to do something big to try to show you just how much Julia is looking forward to your show and potentially meeting you. I thought hard about it for weeks and decided to coin the name #Taylorette1989 for the entire bachelorette weekend. In February, I released the first video I made to tell you and our friends all about Julia's bachelorette, and her love for you and your music. She even made her Tumblr all about her love for you and her excitement for this concert.


Julia is such an incredible person, she's smart, cute, funny, sexy, adorable, fun, outgoing, generous, loving, loyal, and she's an incredibly inspiring elementary school teacher. If anybody deserves a little face time with you, this woman does. I would do absolutely anything to help her see her dreams realized.

So, that first video and other #Taylorette1989 video projects have been shared a ton on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr, but obviously it was going to take something truly special to get this message to you. Julia and her fellow Taylorettes have really gone all out making signs and costumes for your concert tonight. You can search #Taylorette1989 on Twitter to see what I'm talking about. I've done everything I can to help, but at this point all I can do is hope that tonight, the stars will align and she will get a chance to meet you.

It was my birthday this past Saturday, and all I've really been wishing for is that Julia's wish to meet you will be granted tonight. I hope with all my heart that her excitement will be enough to bubble over and you'll be able to see just how much she loves you as an artist and a person.

Thanks a lot Taylor, from myself and from Julia, and I hope tonight and the rest of your world tour is incredible!

Love Rob

ps. Here is just some of the noise Julia and her Taylorettes having been making lately!
