first stop....Gordon Biersch Brewery, just a few miles from the country club where the event was held. TJ enjoyed a Winterbock beer while I had a standard Chardonnay.
But their was a HUGE selection of beers to choose from:
After our rendezvous, we made our way to the country club. As we entered, there were two ladies who greeted us at a table with name tags. One of them very quickly said something about a meet and greet and to hang our coats up and follow her. I was still taking everything in because the surroundings were beautiful but then she said something about me meeting Vanessa just by myself. I was flabbergasted, confused and not understanding what she was saying,
Apparently she had caught wind from my husband and my blog that I am a huge Vanessa Carlton fan.....and yes, I got a one on one meeting her!!!!! What a humble, amazing talent she is...people don't give her enough credit. Her music has touched me in so many ways, for many years now. And I am SO glad her voice is finally being heard. Here is a snapshot of us meeting:
Her performance was surreal. Her voice sounds EXACTLY as it does on her cd. I would be lying if I said her voice didn't touch me. I found myself captivated by her performace and twice tears in my eyes. What a beautiful, artistic, magical message she wishes to send. And I am all the more receptive.
Thank you, vanessa!
