I surely do wish you could have been in my mind last night as I drove home from a Taylor Swift concert in Memphis.  As the girls slept soundly, (it was very late)... wow.... I had some really profound thoughts and blog post ideas and no one to tell them to and no way to write them down!  What a shame.  The really, really good stuff is probably gone.  But I think I can salvage some with which to entertain you.

Can I just say on a side-note... it hit me about half way across Mississippi that most of my thoughts and feelings were of a POSITIVE tone or nature.  Things like..... possibilities and little blessings and silly little notions.

If you've stumbled upon my blog- this doesn't mean anything to you.  But if you know me IRL ... well... you know how straaaaaaange it is for me to have 3 1/2 hours alone with my thoughts and have them mostly be positive.  I mean... this is HUGE!  It can only be explained by the working of the Divine in my soul.

So.... over the next few days.... I will attempt to capture some of those things here- be they very tiny things or vast, complex things (don't worry- there weren't many any terribly complex things).  And also- just some general ramblings about the whole trip-to-the-concert in general because it turned out to be a really cool time.  I can foresee the excitement and anticipation that this has already caused you. 

Let me start with this... the concert made my girls (all three of them-ha) very happy!!

Me?  I'm not a big fan. Of her music or country music in general.  I thought she was a little strange (could have been cold medicine or something, though, as she was sick and fought back coughing several times... it's got to be rough to have to perform sick).  That aside, I've been to better concerts. And I think this boy who was sitting near us felt the same- his expression didn't change the whole time:

BUT- one thing I will say for Taylor is... she is very classy.  With a couple exceptions (and my standards are high), her songs are suitable for young girls.  And her outfits... very tasteful.  She can't really dance that I could tell- so she jumped around alot, but no overtly sexual gyrating (that's a funny word!) or flaunting (so's that one) about.  For a secular artist... I approve.  (And Need to Breathe was her opening act, although we got there only in time to hear the end of their last song... )

So I will leave you with that for now.  Because that is really enough.
