Tonight was our anniversary (3 years, baby – though isn’t it kind of funny to celebrate the anniversary of a big party?), and we went to see Erin McKeown, who we both happen to think is one of the most talented songwriters and performers out there these days.
It is impossible – im-possible, my friends – to be in a bad mood after listening to this song (the link is for lyrics but you really should do yourself a favor and go get it over at iTunes too). If Roo had been a girl we would have given him the middle name Estelle because of this song.
