A Much Needed Vacation, Part 1

After the craziness of the last few months, I decided that a road trip was in order. I bought tickets to see Imogen Heap a few months ago, and so last Wednesday afternoon I packed up the car (along with Roxie) and we headed to DFW. No schedules (other than Immi of course), no appointments, nobody to see...we were just gonna make a beeline towards the Galveston coast and spend a few lazy days.

Imogen was purely amazing. I was not prepared for how incredible she was! If you haven't heard of her, look her up. Now. Drop everything. NOW, I said! Insanely talented.

She plays the keytar for Pete's sake. Tell me what's cooler than that! She also does an improv song - she polls the audience for time signature, key, etc and then makes up a song on the spot. She's donating all proceeds from the live improv songs to a local charity, for the Dallas show it was Dallas Habitat for Humanity. Absolutely awesome.

Thursday - en route to Galveston.
