Mates of State

Once upon a time there was a young girl who loved music more than anything in the world. I would dare say, she may have lived for it even. Every Friday and/or Saturday night she would go to local shows and disappear into the world of music. In her mind, she was the only one there. Just her and the music. Everything else, everyone else, just sort of went away... And she loved it. 

When she became a mother, her passion for music stayed with her but her desire for attending live shows lessened as her responsibilities shifted. Of course, to this day, she still gets weak in the knees when she is introduced to a good band...And she'll never turn down an opportunity to be alone with her music, whether that be in her car, on a walk or just cleaning the house...On very rare occasion, she will still escape to a live show to find that place where a piece of her heart still lies.

Of course, she has to be very picky now that shows are few and far between...When she heard Mates of State announce their tour, she was in. 

This is why:

Wow! These guys put on such a great show. No, it doesn't have anything to do with Adrien Brody.(Not really him.) It may have something to do with the fact that these guys have been married for over ten years and have two darling little girls that tour with them... I love the way they look at each other. They are passionate about their songs, the words and each other. I could see the way she would look at him and watch him while he was doing his thing, and they would smile at each other... They were having fun. And because of that, we all had fun. 

BONUS: I was with one of my dearest friends, kimberly...The night couldn't have been more spot on.
