Grateful for Musical Evenings

I know I was already grateful for our impending night with Mindy Gledhill, as she had a show Saturday at the Country Mercantile's Red Barn.  However, after having actually BEEN there and the event unwrapped beautifully, I'm even more grateful.

Lauren Fox opened for Mindy, and her set was awesome!  She sang some of her own material, but also sang Raffi's "Baby Beluga" as well as Marina & the Diamonds' "I am Not a Robot! Sooooo incredibly fabulous!

It was sweet, from beginning to end.  It was such an intimate venue, with minimal lighting and a darling bunting that the infamous, and ever talented Dandee made!  Marilyn absolutely outdid herself....PLUS it was sold out about a week prior to the show....with standing room only towards the back (Which was where Mr LKP & I were, so we could dance a little with no one noticing.  Hee hee!),  Mini-Me got a chair.  (Considering how sick she'd been the past week, we wanted her to be able to relax.  Worked like a charm.  Halfway through Lauren's set I glanced over and Mini-Me had fallen asleep!  That's not as bad as it sounds, since her body really was probably overwhelmed since she'd just rested all week.  I loved that Lauren was so soothing with her voice and her guitar that Mini-Me felt at peace enough to close her eyes.  Good things.  All good things!)

By the end of the show, we were all on Cloud 9, and Mini-Me suddenly morphed into a major autograph hound!  She snagged Mindy's signature on her CDs & sheet music as well as the two gentlemen that accompanied Mindy.  Lol!  Then she begged Lauren for her autograph as well.  Which was fabulous, cause it gave Lauren & I a chance to catch-up since she moved away from here earlier this past year!

What a wonderful night, filled with great musical talents, and familiar faces galore; including that of the talented Lee Ann Norris, who was the photographer of the evening.  (Hadn't seen her in years, since right about when we moved home from Idaho, and she was moving to Washington D.C.!)

Thank you to all who gave everything they could for the beautiful night.  Ya'll hit a home run!
