Pic of the Day

This pic is of me and my idol Brandi Carlile. You can check her out at http://www.brandicarlile.com/. I first heard her songs on Greys Anatomy and thought she was so talented. She inspired me to learn guitar (which reminds me I must practice!). I met her last year during her tour with Maroon 5. When I found out she was the support act, I begged the hubbster to let me go(!) so he paid for my airfare and off I went to Brisbane, shopped, and had one night in a motel.

The concert was AWESOME! I was by myself and I was quite happy about being on my own. So it came time for the concert to start. My seat was 20 rows from the front, so that was good in itself, but most of the crowd hadn't arrived for the support act so when Brandi came on I went to the front and found a seat 3 rows back. There she was, with her band and it was almost a surreal moment. This musician who I had adored for only 12 months was there, singing and playing guitar and I was in a magical place.

When her show all of half an hour (!) was over, I raced to the foyer and was lucky enough to meet her. She was so down to earth and friendly and in the pic I look like a nervous schoolgirl! I was so bloody nervous! I raced back to my row 20 seat and danced and sang along to Maroon 5 and One Republic, alone but with thousands of others. It will be a highlight of my life.

What a fabulously independent woman you are! I've never been to a concert/movie/restaurant on my own (the best I've managed is a cafe!)and I consider it a weakness of mine.

Thank you for saying hi, and for the compliment about my blog. Now I, too, have found another blog *I* like.

Have a wonderful weekend :-)
