Good Friday morning! In place of the cozy, autumn-ish lake photos this morning, I am sharing a picture of my favorite city, Pittsburgh!
Why? You may ask. Or maybe not. But I am sharing it because this past week, I left the comfort of my little piece of the world to travel here with some of my favorite people to see one of my favorite artists!
On our way! And not me being so thankful for a son that loves to drive.
A mandatory stop for dinner before the concert and photos to document the night. And the fact that I do indeed own clothing that is not and does not resemble pajamas.
As well as documenting the fact that I am blessed with children that love and enjoy spending time with each other.
And then there was the concert. We saw Post Malone, one of my favorite artists ever. I titled this post "Full Circle" because that is what I thought as I stood there with three of my four children. Music has always been a part of our lives and one of the first things I shared with them as babies and toddlers. Back then, it was tapes of Mozart as they slept and old nursery rhyme songs as we played. Specifically, it was Walt Disney Records children's favorite songs Volume 3 with Donald Duck on the cover of the cd. We listened to and sang songs like Oh Dear, What Can The Matter Be? and Grandfather's Clock.
Eventually, those little toddlers grew, as children tend to do, and developed their own taste in music. Or, as in Peyton's case, a preference for reading instead. A few years ago, Rhett introduced me to a new young artist named Post Malone. And I loved his music. Does it fit the vibe of a 50ish mother of four who likes cozy, coffee, books, and being home? Maybe not. But when Rhett heard he was coming to Pittsburgh, he got tickets. Really good ones too. It was a fantastic night, and it was not lost on me that these young people were so happy that their mom was along.
He was amazing, even with a cracked rib from falling into a hole in the stage last week!
Thoughts and prayers to all affected by the devastation the hurricane left and will leave behind. It is worth remembering that while the initial shock is broadcast on tv during the event, the loss and destruction remain long after for those affected.
Finally, because I cannot finish without sharing some cozy autumn pictures...
There. That's better. Have a lovely weekend, my friends! Thanks for visiting!
And thanks for the fun on my last post too!
