Day 259: Brought My Friends (And Wife) To A Concert
One of the most memorable moments of my life was my first dance with my wife as a married couple at our wedding. Although everyone was around us, it seemed like we were the only two people there. I was so happy to just embrace my wife and dance to "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Callait. That song has been our song but we have never actually heard it performed live. So when I found out that Jason Mraz was coming to Chicago, I leapt at the opportunity to get tickets to see him. Prior to getting the tickets, I asked my best friend Brian and his girlfriend Sylvana if they would be interested in going with us. They happily obliged. I knew that I wanted to get their tickets for them because they have previously taken me to Jay-Z and Kanye West concerts (really, Syl couldn't go to either one and I took her ticket). So tonight, for my random act of kindness, I brought Brian, Sylvana and Lindsey to see Jason Mraz at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater. There might even be plans in place for Lindsey and I to recreate our first dance.
