"Better Together!"

Friday, August 29th was a surprising night! My best friend Chelsea called me at 5:30pm telling me that her brother had two extra tickets to the Jack Johnson concert in Irvine! We called Chad and we met up with him at the Verizon Center in Irvine. Keven and I were so excited because we have always wanted to go to a Jack Johnson concert. We absolutely love him! He is amazing live and it was so much fun! Every song is so good! When Kev and I were dating, we would always dance to "our song" called Better Together so when Jack Johnson started singing that song, I couldn't help but fall harder for my love and get a little emotional! It was definitely a special moment while Kev was holding me and listened to the song that made us fall in love! I love you so much Kev!! We have really been blessed and I am SO happy with you as my husband!! Thanks so much Chad and Chels for thinking about us! We love you!

Chad, Vern, Keven and I watching Jack perform!
The little spec in the middle is Jack. We were on the grass, but it was still awesome to be there!

"Better Together"- Jack Johnson
There's no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard.
No song that I could sing but I could try for your heart.
Our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoe box of photographs with sepia-toned lovin'.
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart.
"Why are we here?" and, "Where do we go?"
And "How come we're so hard?"
It's not always easy and sometimes life can be deceiving.
I'll tell you one thing, it's always better when we're together.
Mmm, it's always better when we're together.
Yeah, we'll look at them stars when we're together.
Well, it's always better when we're together.
Yeah, it's always better when we're together.
And all of these moments
Just might find their way into my dreams tonight
But I know that they'll be gone when the morning light sings.
Or brings new things for tomorrow night you see.
That they'll be gone too, too many things I have to do.
But if all of these dreams
Might find their way into my day-to-day scene.
I'd be under the impression I was somewhere in between
With only two, just me and you, not so many things we got to do
Or places we got to be, we'll see beneathe the mango tree now.
I believe in memories they look so, so pretty when I sleep.
And when I wake up, you look so pretty sleeping next to me.
But there is not enough time, and there is no, no song I could sing.
And there is no combination of words I could say
But I will still tell you one thing, we're better together.
