The end is near...

This is my {it's five in the morning, i loath technology, waiting for video to render/export} face. An all too common face this time of the year. Finals week. My last finals week as an undergrad. I still have yet to process it all. I plan to do lots of reflecting once the craziness is over. Which will be soon, thursday. Sigh. Soon. Bittersweet times, dear readers, bittersweet times... 

You Made My Day

Friday, April 23rd. Drove Eleanor nearly six hours to Lebanon, PA to see The Welcome Wagon. Teamed up with my two good friends Liz and Lizzie the drive seemed to go by very quickly. It was a beautiful day for a drive and we enjoyed viewing the grand Pennsylvania countryside.    

We arrived in Lebanon and it took us quite a while to find the church. The Welcome Wagon was performing for the 250th anniversary of Tabor UCC. The crowd consisted of elderly church members and families. Let's just say...not many "fans" were there.

We were SO happy to get there! 
The music was heavenly. Vito and Monique were genuine. They performed wonderful familiar melodies and a few that I hadn't heard. Sufjan played in their band. Woah! 

They did a 'meet and greet' afterwards and I was such a giddy little fan! Truly lovely people. My summation of the entire experience... 
SUCH a worth while journey! QUITE the day! A wonderful bless-ed day! Lots of driving. Experienced The Welcome Wagon's glorious musical stylings. Spoke with Vito, Monique and Sufjan. Incredible. GREAT conversations in the wee hours of the morn on the drive back with sisterly friends. Twas good!
