Music + Memories

Yesterday was a nice, long 4th of July – woke up before 8 AM, wrote my blog post then got ready and headed off to Richmond!

(I have some fun photos, but I’ll share those soon!)

Here were the highlights of my day:

  1. Having my first (and second!) Ukrops cupcake.
  2. Trying on TOMS shoes – though I didn’t end up buying (yet)
  3. Tasting my first Kombucha (I went with Trilogy)
  4. Epic tunes on Sirius radio!
Seriously, I don’t think I would have made it through the day/night without the Pulse radio station.  And I think whenever I hear the next two (!!) songs, I will always remember my 2011 Fourth of July:
I am a longtime fan of Matt Nathanson – see, he opened for Howie Day back when I was in college and I loved his act so much more than the main attraction!  He also returned to play again in Pullman, so of course, I went ! I am glad to see him enjoying success and earning legions of fans – he deserves it!
I didn’t like this song at first, but as I sang it (out loud, of course) it calmed me in bouts of merging on to the Interstate and other general stressful driving situations.  Yay for a happy place in calamity!
How do you cope in stressful situations?


    • I really like the kombucha! And I don’t know if it was just a placebo effect, but I felt really good all day.
