Eden, my own Eden, just turned twelve.
That’s right. Twelve.
The age of ear piercing and the Young Women program. The age of sassy and sweet. The age of obedient mixed with obstinate. The age of eager and resistant at the same time.
I love that girl.
For her birthday, I took her to see Mindy Gledhill in concert. We met up with my cousin and her daughter and had a fabulous time.
Mindy is an “indie” pop artist, meaning she isn’t carried by a big label. (I think that’s what it means, anyway.) The concert venue was the upstairs of a little church. There were probably only about 50 people there. It was awesome!
On her albums, she records multiple tracks and harmonizes with herself. When she performs live, the guitar player on the left harmonizes with her. It was super cool. Eden loved Mindy’s dress, sparkly tights, and converse. It was so fun watching her perform.
And, especially for Tami, the set list:
Whole Wide World
All the Pennies
That’s What Love’s About
I Take Flight
Pocketful of Poetry
Little Red Bike
All About Your Heart
Trouble No More
I Do Adore
And, as an encore, the band did a cover of Love Fool by The Cardigans with Mindy on keytar!
After the concert, we got to meet Mindy and take a bad cell phone picture with her. (I can’t get it to upload for some reason. Sorry.)
Great concert, great memories!
