I did have a little time to do something for myself last month and wanted to share it here with you. I met my all-time favorite singer/songwriter!!! My husband and I took a little trip sans kids to Nashville to see Lori Mckenna play. As a bonus, we stayed with a couple close friends. It turned out to be a beautiful night, and I enjoyed every minute of the concert. Afterward, I got a minute to meet Lori and stammer out a few words of admiration and snap a picture. Did I mention she gave me a hug? Maybe it was because she felt bad that I had traveled all the way from South Dakota. Or that I appeared unable to form sentence. Or maybe she is just that sweet. I fell in love with her music in 2005 when I heard one of her songs on college radio in Massachusetts, and have been obsessed with her music since. You can check her site through my link above, and even score a free tune from there.
This is not the most flattering picture of her, but you get the idea...Lori Mckenna mid-song
We hugged it out.
This cheese-tastic expression on my face pretty much sums up the entire experience.
There you have it. Now I'll go craft.
