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