Perfect Moment Monday -- Outdoor Concert Magic

View from my seat at the Carrie Rodriguez concert. CLOSE
Each week I participate in Perfect Moment Monday, sponsored by the blog, According to Weebles, "Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week.

Think about listening to an extremely talented musician with a beautiful voice with the Colorado Monument and a beautiful sunset in the background. Add in a very sweet hubby, one teenage son, and some really great friends and you have the makings for a Perfect Moment Monday post.

Earlier this year, I got to see Carrie Rodriguez perform as the opening act for Los Lonely Boys. She was AWESOME!

When I heard that she was part of this summer's Riverfront Commission's outdoor concert series, I was delighted!

The weather was beautiful, our friends set up our chairs on the lawn about 15 rows from the front of the stage. And, because we know (important) people who know (important) people, we even got to meet Carrie and her band backstage.

Me and my friends Loralie and Daun. GREAT FRIENDS. GOOD TIMES!

My son, Bryce, Carrie Rodriguez and me BACKSTAGE before the concert! TOO COOL!
My sweet DH, Tom and I. I LOVE THIS MAN!
 Sunset during concert to the right of the stage. FABULOUS!

It was a full four hours of Perfect Moments!

Such a beautiful venue! You and your friends and family members look like you are thoroughly enjoying yourselves.

How cool that you got to go backstage, as well!

You sure can't ask for anything better than a beautiful night, great music, and awesome friends! However, I think we could've been sitting on a glacier in alaska and I would still be having a good time with these girls!
