Life Experiences

Tomorrow night will be the fourth time I will have the pleasure to see Mr. Keith Urban in concert. I can't even describe how excited I am. It's truly an out of body experience for me, the way the music is so loud that you can feel your heart beating in your chest, the smiles on people's faces, and just dancing and being totally out of control for at least three hours. There is nothing to think about but the lyrics, and to watch him jam out on his guitar, his harmonica, his banjo, and his piano. Man that guy is talented.

I really wanted to take Riley with this time, but as it is on a school night he can't go. But next time it's on a weekend, he will be there. And it will be a night he will never forget. I want him to experience everything life has to offer. Live music from who I think has to be the best live performer today, swimming in the ocean, camping out under the stars, painting his new bedroom whatever color he wants. I feel so empowered as a single mom to give him anything and everything he wants, with limits of course. He and I are such a great team, and we have so much fun together.

Over the last week I purchased him and I a piece of land to build on. It's just up the street from my old neighborhood, and across the street from a gal who's younger sister and I were good friends when we were little. It's familiar, and cozy, and just the right spot. Our lives are truly moving on, in such a positive direction. I feel completely blessed that I was smart enough to put my past behind me and chose to move on in my own way.

Take your kids fishing this weekend, go to the park and hang from the monkey bars. Enjoy each other.
