sara bareilles is a goddess

robert has had a surprise brewing for me for weeks. to kick off my birthday week, he's been sweetly scheming. every once in a while, he'll break into a sly smile out of nowhere and exclaim, "i can't wait to tell you about your surprise!"

last night was the big unveil. and it was everything he built it up to be, and more.

we went to a sara bareilles concert in a little chapel, at nearby wake forest university. it was hands-down the best live show i've ever been to. and i love live music, and i've been to a lot of shows. sara was beautiful, effortless on stage, cutely entertaining and had a voice like clear diamonds. she ended the show with a cover of coldplay's "yellow", and when she sang the line "you know i love you so..." i wanted to yell it back at her.

forgive the awful cell phone pics, but behold the imitable sara:



i highly, highly suggest if she ever comes within a reasonable radius of your home, you go. she will not disappoint. and neither did robert. i love the fact that he chose to take me to see an artist that i liked. not one that we were both in love with, but that i particularly fancied. and by the time we left the show, i do believe he was a little in love with her as well. and i'm okay with that:)

here's one of my favorite by her, city. listen and fall in love.

I went and saw her show in Baltimore and it BLEW ME AWAY!!! She is amazing and you know she works hard and appreciates it all!! The fact that she hand picks her opening acts is great. And then she gets on that stage and wails. I love her. She is my biggest girl crush

How sweet of him to take you to see her! It shows he really pays attention to your interests - what a good man :)

Hi Courtney!
I don't know her but will listen to the clip, thanks for the tip.
And I read your posts I have missed, and I have to say, reading more posts one after another is like having a cupcake with my tea, good and sweet. I honestly can say I wish my daughters will grow up so graceful, living close to me like you and your family, having a man like your Robert and really appreciating life in general, like you.
As always, I'm a big fan of the Courtney chronicles, (perhaps an idea to put all these beautiful posts into a binder? or better yet, have you seen the Blurb site? It would be a perfect gift to yourself and a perfect memory for later in life).
oh and I'm having a give away, nothing much, have a look, gotta go now, time for bed,
all the best sweetie!
