A Night out with Fred Eaglesmith >>>

 Last night we saw one of my alltime favorite musicians play at Floores.  Fred Eaglesmith holds a sweet spot in my heart, and especially b/c its shared between me and my bestie.  The songs from Paradise Motel just bring me back to a time in my life and make me want to weep everytime I hear them.  This was the first time seeing him since his mandolin player passed away.  He is now paired up with The Ginn Sisters (who are from Texas) for this tour.  They were amazing and made me want more more more.  They kind of intoxicated me.  Im so glad that this canadian loves to come to our home town about once a year.  Ill never forget the first time I saw him play at the Cabaret in our hometown before it shut down.  And then another time that was just so very special... The first week James and I started dating.  We drove to Gruene with our friends and had a magical evening.  One of my top memories for several reasons.

Of course I was excited to get dolled up for a night out... you know how I love the clothes.  A true weakness.  I thought Id show you real quick how I transitioned what I wore during the day to my evening outfit.  Simple change of the shorts to a skirt, mocs to boots and throw on a sweater and accessories.  These are my favorite kind of outfits.  Do you spy miss Violet in the background?  :)

  4. A gypsy woman after my own heart, as always.

    Something about your writing in this post, or maybe the light in the photographs, makes me want to find the magic that I seem to have already lost so far this year. So, thank you Laura. For always being a source of some kind of inspiration.
