Happy Valentine's Day

My Tribute to Sarah McLachlan

There are many things I love:
My husband
My children
My family
Sarah McLachlan

As a lifelong fan, I have listened and loved her music for years but have never had the amazing experience of seeing her live in person, singing my favorite songs.

Well, a few days before Valentine's Day, Wednesday the 9th, to be exact, I received a FedEx delivery addressed to me and what do I find inside, but two magically appearing tickets to Sarah.

What??? Phone, dial, ring ring, "Hello?"
"he he he, surprise!"

The joy and excitement were almost uncontainable. I honestly really couldn't think about it for the next few days because I would be too excited. Myself, being unaware of her concert schedule, was pleasantly surprised by my sweet husband who got us tickets to see her in Salt Lake City, on Valentine's Day! Of all days, she was in Salt Lake that day.

Here are the photos taken by my lovely camera phone because guess who forgot to pack a camera? Me!!!

The Amazing Kingsbury Hall
How cool is Sarah McLachlan? She brings her own Wi-Fi

Can you see her? She's right there!!!
I did video two songs, Answer and Angel. I couldn't help myself!

They had a table in the lobby that people could write a question for her and twice during the show, she answered questions and was very candid and funny and so sweet. It was such a great way to interact with the audience.

So if you're a fan, here are the songs I can remember she sang, but have definitely missed a few because she sang for 3 hours!!!

Loving You is Easy
Building a Mystery
Sweet Surrender
Good Enough
I Will Remember You
World On Fire
Answer (My personal favorite)
Hold On
Fumbling Towards Ecstasy
The Path of Thorns
The Encore ended the night with
Ice Cream

Wow, what a night! Thank you my sweet Valentine for an amazing day I will never forget, and was so happy to share it with you. I love you with all my heart!
