ACL Family

Anyone that knows us, knows that we LOVE the Austin City Limits Music Festival.

I was looking through pictures from past festivals and I am feeling very nostalgic seeing my family grow-up over the festival years. I am so thankful that I always carry a camera to capture what this festival means to our family. (but that's another blog post)

So here it is. A look back at our festival years. (feeling so bummed that I can't find the pictures from 2004. Ugh!)

The Barton Hills Choir was fortunate enough to sing at the 10th Anniversary Party of Austin City Limits tonight.

It was a load of fun and made for a very long day.
I wish I had a good video of Daydream Believer or Running on Empty.
Both songs in their ACL set.
Both songs on insane loop inside this noggin of mine.

The concert tonite left me wishing that next weekend was here already.
I can't wait.

And I am proud of these kids.
And I am thankful for their director.

I Can Be Alone

What I know about me is that I LOVE being a friend.

I sometimes have a hard time being able to see my positive attributes.
But what I know is that I value every one of my friends.

I love my friends.

I need my friends.

I don't know what my life would be without my friends.

I can't imagine our kids not seeing us have these relationships. I can't imagine our kids not being surrounded by the love of so many incredible people.

I don't know if our kids will grow up and have lifelong friends like us.

I hope they do.

I am aware of how unique it is that our closest friends are from childhood.

I also know that I am a big girl and I can be alone.

But why would I want to do that?

Life is so much better when shared with a real friend.

I LOVE my friends.

P.S. hours and hours and hours later and i still can't find a picture of me with terry a., denise g., liz c. or wendy g. phooey. drats. bummer. how can it be?!?!?!?! i just can't look anymore - but you friends are always in my heart. (and i might end up taking this post down in the middle of the night, because i am sure it will cause me to fret.)
