Summer Summer Summertime!

It's summertime! In Florida, that means an onslaught of humid days and afternoon showers. However, in spite of this not being the ideal season for Floridians, I definitely have some things to look forward to!

(1) Summer concert tours are some of the best. Back in my high school and college days, it would have been shows like Lillith Fair (I have a deep love for female singer/songwriters). The artist has to be a favorite of mine to attend the concert, since we have to arrange for childcare. Earlier this year, J and I saw John Legend. I've also been lucky to see Pink Martini and Indigo Girls.

 J and I along with our friends will be seeing Dave Matthews Band in July! Hearing DMB immediately brings me back to my high school and college days. Truth be told, I haven't listened to them a lot these days, but I am looking forward to waxing nostalgic for one night.

A few weeks later I will be seeing Sara Bareilles with my sister. I am not very familiar with her music, other than a handful of songs. But I adored her on "The Sing-Off". My sister is a huge fan. I enjoy hearing new music in a live venue. Something about not having a preconceived notion of how a song should sound makes the experience amazing.

(2) J and I are also traveling this summer! His fraternity brother is getting married in the heart of DC. We will see his college friends, eat some good food, drink some good beers and welcome his fraternity brother to the married club. I don't know if we will be able to sneak in any sight seeing, but I'd love to see the Lincoln Memorial at night!
