Blog block: An epidemic

Some people's blogs are all about everything: every thought, every breath, every single hair shed and even the feelings the hair had as it hit the floor.
(I hear it hurts)
It's great that they can honestly express how they feel about everything, but it's really not for me.
 (How would they know how hair feels?  Better yet, who even really cares?  I know I don't.  Maybe that makes me a selfish jerk)
I prefer to leave a few things unsaid and to maintain some privacy.
Shame on me.

But sometimes it becomes difficult to write about anything.
You're probably thinking "maybe you should try doing something...anything."
To you who thought that (me) I have to say that I actually have done "things" and I've had a really good time doing these "things."  Aaron, my events coordinator AND husband makes sure of this.  I just can't think of how to tell you what I've done in a way where you'll want to read it and I can't figure out why I can't figure it out, thus the "blog block."

Maybe I'm just in a funk and have a lot on my mind
or maybe I'm still tired.
Because I am.
Whatever it is, I have a feeling this won't be the last time, so....I'm going to stop blabbing on about how tough this is and give this blog entry a whirl.
Then delete it.

How's 'bout a little peek into our weekend?

Saturday, we drove "over the hill" and met up with some friends.  We'll call them C and C for the sake of their privacy.  This was our first time staying with them and they were truly hospitable AND fun.  We look forward to doing more with them in the future!
If you're reading this, thanks again for everything!

While visiting, we ate truly good (fresh and healthy) food.
On Saturday they took us to "Schoolhaus Brewhaus" which is (you guessed it!) a German restaurant in a restored school house for some delicious food and a huge selection of beer!
We can't wait to go  there again!



On Sunday morning we lazed around for a bit, did a bit of shopping for the concernt in the evening and then went wine tasting where C works.  We both sipped and picked out (Rose for me, Pinot Gris for Aaron) a few more wines that we will enjoy from Umpqua vineyards in Oregon.


  Then on Sunday night we saw the Avett Brothers at the Britt Festival in an ampitheatre setting.  I love going to the Britt for concerts because you can bring in your own food and drink and enjoy it picnic style.



It turns out that a lot of people haven't heard of the Avett Brothers.  They aren't the average junk you hear on the radio these days (I'm starting to sound really old here...) because they write their own music, play their own instruments and their songs actually mean something.
They  put on such an energetic show that we all found ourselves dancing along.
Here's a new, slow, favorite (because Aaron and I were married in Jan):








We then came home super late on Sunday night and woke up Monday morning much too early!

What a weekend!

I'm jealous you went to an Avett Brothers concert. The first song I heard by them was "I and Love and You." which remained my favorite. I hadn't heard the January Wedding one yet but it is another good one.
