Two weeks ago, I moved into Target Field to attend the All Star Week events. Zeb and I (and a slew of other people) attended the Celebrity All Star Game, Home Run Derby, Pre-Game Party, and All Star Game. It was a magical time for the baseball lover in me, and probably the only time in life it will ever happen. Not technically a style or music post, but more of an I-love-my-life-post.
I love a good lyric video – I found out about this one on Instagram through the person who hand-lettered the video, @duendehandlettering.
The chorus chants, “we dance, we sing, we live, we love, tonight.” It’s a fairly simple, feel-good song, but sometimes that’s all you need.
On 612 Day (June 12), I attended an Instameet hosted by @mamacita.rita. It was a casual meet-up for local IGers who maybe knew each other by handle, but not by actual name or face! I met a bunch of lovely people from Minneapolis who all share a love of community, capturing beautiful moments, and basically, Instagram. You know, the people who won’t judge you for setting up a scene, for taking too many photos, for meeting strangers. See the news story here.
As I head into this Fourth of July weekend with very few plans, I’m reminded of the beauty of an empty calendar. This song is an anthem for just that, with lyrics like “No point to making plans, the wild life is human nature,” and “We’ve got to take our chance, try our best to keep it working.”
So let the weekend take you where it will, and enjoy your holiday, ‘Merica.
