I guess this post should start with a confession of mine.
I'm a very passionate person.
And that can turn into getting really excited and obsessed with certain things.
This band is one of those things I have a slight obsession over.
I always wanted to go to one of their concerts, but it just never worked to go see them when they were in town, and even that wasn't very often. If I am correct the band is no longer together either. :(
But almost all of the members have successfully started up their own personal band.
I hate saying I have a favorite, but when it comes down to it, Keith Harkin was probably always my favorite.
Caleb got me his first CD for Christmas about two years ago, and I still have all the songs memorized.
At first he just did covers, but then he came out with a new album full of original songs by him...
And he was going to be playing live in Portland!
I don't live in Portland.
So with the OK from my parents, and some last minute texts, I booked a flight, bought a ticket to the concert, and was leaving in less than two weeks!
Through the years, ( And my constant playing of Celtic Thunder and Keith Harkin ) I have turned Caleb into a fan as well, so both of us were buzzing with excitement!
It was one of the best ( and shortest ) flights I have ever been on! I am officially in love with night flying, it was so beautiful! It was a smooth flight, and once my jitters quieted down, I was pretty relaxed and confident.
