The first time I saw Mumford and Sons was in September of 2013 at a two day festival-like thing in Guthrie, Oklahoma. That weekend, I brought my guitar and played my songs on the street for a bunch of strangers. It was the first time I had ever played my music for anyone outside my friends and family. Those sunny afternoons were my first big steps into performing. It was nerve-wracking and I felt utterly vulnerable....but also excited by the fear. In those moments, I felt alive and I loved it!
Flash forward to April of 2016, about two and a half years later...I have been performing ever since that day in September 2013. It has been challenging and exciting all at once. It is interesting to have that time stamp in my mind, to see where I started, to see how all of this began because it puts the challenges I have had with my music lately in perspective. Music is what I love to do. There is no getting around that. Seeing it, hearing it, playing it...it all excites me! Thanks Mumford, for reminding me of that!
Live music has a way of bringing people together and that will always be one of my favorite things about it! <3
Snapshots from this last week:
Also, I included some pictures of Connor and I. I had a terrible cold/flu thing going on last week and I am still kind of recovering from it, but once I felt well enough to do things...I wanted to get out of the house a little...soooo Connor and I explored a little in the Plaza District, and cooked some awesome food together over the weekend. There was also an incident with getting ice cream that involved us driving for 30 minutes (and then another 30-45 minutes to find parking) in Bricktown. We were kind of all over the place. Haha!
