It was Meow-velous!
If you've read some of my earlier blog posts, it's no secret that I'm a huge fan of my husband. Last weekend he and his band, TWINS, performed at the 80/35 music festival in Des Moines. ON THE MAIN STAGE! Although I only stayed for TWINS, I must say it was a very well-organized event with a great variety of musical talent. The weather was perfect and this year their theme was cats...um...ADORABLE! They used phrases such as "Right Meow" and "In a Meow-r." Genius. (I'm easily amused!)
I enjoyed spending time with my sister who came along and is as big of a TWINS fan as I am. I also got to see friends old and new (briefly, because everyone was on their way somewhere!).
Joel and the boys did a wonderful job. It's been such an adventure watching them grow as individuals and as a band. Their talent is admirable, no question about it. But you know what my favorite thing is? Their attitudes. They are the sweetest boys you'll ever meet. You can tell they love what they do. And although they continue to increasingly get showered with accolades, they're still the same friendly guys they always were. Approachable. Kind. Joyful. I love them!
But I, of course, have a personal favorite band member - the frontman. My powerhouse of a husband is both a force to be reckoned with and the first guy who'd wrap you up in a hug upon meeting. His musical depth and creativity always astound me. He's a special one, that guy!
