Finding My WoCavé Through Music
Last month I shared with you that I am part of this amazing campaign with Skinny Cow. So often the work that I do is all encompassing and that means that there is little time for myself. I work work work and when I am not working on my blog/social media company, I am with my children. There is not exactly a lot of alone time around here. I don't have a Woman Cave like my husband has a Man Cave.
That is why I was thrilled to be a part of the Skinny Cow WoCavé campaign this summer. This means that I will get to spend time doing some things that I love with some people that I never really get a chance to be alone with all that often.
This month I found my WoCavé through music.
Last week, my sister and I (plus a few other girlfriends) went to see Rob Thomas in concert. Growing up, we used to go to concerts all of the time. My sister and I loved that my dad was always so willing to take us to see pretty much any band or musician that we wanted to see. He loves music and so do we.
Fast forward about 20+ years later, three kids each, my sister rarely get to concerts anymore. And when we do, one of us is usually babysitting for the other one. Getting to go to a concert together is a rare treat and one that we fully took advantage of.
I am a huge Rob Thomas fan. I love him in Matchbox 20 and I love him on his own. So does my sister. I bought the tickets and made sitter arrangements plus dinner reservations.
We headed out for dinner first and then arrived at the concert just as Rob Thomas was about to go on (perfect timing):
We danced. We sang. We clapped. We probably screamed a little. By the end of the evening, my throat was raw and my hands hurt. That means we had a great time.
All throughout the concert, I was reminded of my childhood with my sister and seeing concerts. I knew I had found my WoCavé through music as I closed my eyes and just took in the moment during the middle of the concert. I felt the music and sang every song. As we stood cheering for an encore, I smiled because we had an absolutely wonderful evening.
As a surprise, when we got back to the car, I pulled out a cooler of Skinny Cow Limited Edition Snickerdoodle Sandwiches. Look at these things:
These are probably the most delicious ice cream sandwiches that I have ever had. They were the perfect ending to our evening. They even soothed our throats and as we toasted each other with the ice cream sandwiches, we promised to do this again. Very soon!
