Madonna Concert

So I have been a Madonna fan since I was a pre teen. I have to say I felt like a teenager dancing to M in my bedroom with my sister at the concert last night. We had the best time singing & dancing our hearts out! We both kept saying I can't believe we are singing and dancing with Madonna it seemed surreal to us, I think we are both still drunk on Madonna. Madonna is an Icon and she is definetly outspoken and has never been afraid to express herself, that's what I love about her she just doesn't care what people think of her she just says what is on her mind.

I think Madonna has really paved the way for us girls as far as believing in herself and always re inventing herself. I think that is probably why she is still rocking at 50! and let me tell you that girl can rock. The energy at the concert was crazy she just made everyone want to get out of their seats and dance and just feel free. We never sat down the entire concert. My sister and I kept saying we didn't want it to end it was that amazing ! So girls open a bottle of wine, put on some Madonna and just dance, it is so liberating !

~Fall Light~

There is something subtle and soft about the light in the fall, especially just before the sun sets. The sun was hitting this maple just right and it cast a beautiful warm glow which is fabulous for taking photos. There is a small window of opportunity every evening to catch this light, so get outside and see how the sunlight shines on everything just before it sets!

~Fall Backpacking Shades State Park~

Well fall is in full swing and I have to say so far so good ... We decided to load up the dog and the backpack gear and head for the woods. It was a fabulous weekend to backpack the weather was simply gorgeous. There is nothing better than sipping wine by a campfire with your two best friends! Each night we were greeted by the calls of the great horned and barred owls along with a pack of coyotes who sounded like they were right outside our tent. There is something about the fall sunlight, it is so soft and subtle, it seems to give everything a warm glow. I can't think of a better way to enjoy fall then to spend it outdoors enjoying natures ever changing pallete. So get outside and enjoy all the fall splendor and soak up the last bits of warm sunshine!
