Today, I am recovering from an amazing weekend with family and sitting here with y'all reminiscing the birth of the youngest of my six children, twins Luke and John. They are 23 years young as of 4:54 (Luke) and 5:03 (John) am this morning! Carried full-term and weighing in at six pounds, 14 ounces and six pounds, two ounces respectively, my baby boys were two precious little bundles of baby boy joy who have both become amazing young men and wonderful human beings. For that, I am forever thankful and I love them beyond measure!
I am listening to Chicago as I type this post. Yes, while I don't really claim favorites, Saturday night while watching and listening to them in concert (along with the Doobie Brothers), I did, indeed, declare my heart loyal to the years and decades that they have provided me (and the rest of the world) with some incredibly amazing talent and fond memories. I am a sucker for brass, especially the saxophone, followed very closely by a full-fledged drum solo! These gentleman have not lost their touch with wowing a crowd. I stood in awe of the reception they received from the large gathering of fans and, naturally, a standing ovation at the end! I captured much of it all on video to remember all the rest of my days! *wink*
Those of you who have read my posts over the past three to four years might remember when I posted a music widget with a playlist filled with Chicago songs along with my free Saturday in the Park scrapkit and extras. I was amazed to find how many of you would listen throughout the day as you did your housework or while scrapping on the computer. They truly have appealed to many generations, haven't they?
Wishing everyone a most glorious week! It's only the beginning of what I want to feel forever ... *big smile*
