What has been the single happiest moment of your life?

Outside of children being born.

I'm especially interested in the answers from younger posters.



edit: And yeah, this should be in Lemonade Stand. Whoops.

Tough to say but I think I'd pick when I was a teenager and my mother had a breast issue that turned out not to be cancer.

Maybe I should have something more close to home...something in regards to family...but, seriously, I don't know if I could possibly get any more thrilled than when Ryan Adams called me after I won that contest. I love his music much so much, I admire the heck out of his talent. To be able to actually have a one-on-one conversation like we did...I mean, how many people get the chance? It still blows me away.

- U2 concerts with Phil (yeah, I'm not ashamed to admit I had more fun at U2 shows than our wedding. He'd probably say the same)

- when I will be picking up my dog on July 27. I have waited my entire life for her....

- seeing a pack of wild cheetahs up close in Africa

let's see:

I'm single, never been married and have no kids. Therefore I'd have to say that thus far my two happiest moments would have to be:

- meeting Bono and having the opportunity to shake his hand and have him sign my book

- my first (and only) trans-Pacific flight. The excitement, the butterflies, the anxiety....what a feeling. And the moment I stepped out of the airport and onto Chinese soil for the first time...wow! Indescribable!

Probably the birth of my last son, because I knew my family was complete!

I'm graduating with my PhD on May 19, and I'm pretty happy about that.

In my personal life, I'd have to say City of Blinding Lights at the first Vertigo show I attended, on 5/22/05. That night I realized my life was going to go back to normal after I'd been treated for pretty severe depression for a year, and had suffered from it for probably a year before being treated. It sounds kind of corny to say that the best moment of my life was at a U2 show, but when the confetti dropped and the band came out, something clicked inside of me, and I caught myself thinking for the first time in a long time "Everything's going to be all right."

Wow! That brought a tear to my eye.

I have had so many great moments so it's hard to pick a best.

My wedding day. Swiming in the ocean for the first time was an amazing feeling. Every time I travel I just get a great feeling I can't describe.

Well if we can't say the birth of a child...

I can't say these are the best, but they are on the top list:

-Getting into the Edun event with Maddy and getting to shake Bono's hand and getting that pic of her with him
-Going to Hawaii for a U2 show with friends, meeting tons of people, and Maddy getting pulled on stage
-Seeing U2 from the front row at Staples with Amy & Maddy after scanning in. Surreal.
-Hawaiian honeymoon
