Well as a friend told me nothing could be more true than with this picture. She laughed after she saw the vacation pics from last month. The beautiful ocean. My beautiful girlfriend. A drink in my hand.(Which is extremely rare for me) I was really livin' it up.
Now, just a few weeks later you see me singing my heart outside in the heat. There's even a jar for tips. I guess the message is not to ever take yourself too seriously. Or, one day you're flying high and the next...? It made me laugh too. But, for all the things she noticed in this photo she left out a few of the most important things.
True, there was no beautiful ocean or boats. But look at the reflection in the glass window. Who is there taking my picture? Yep, my girlfriend is there taking the very picture we were talking about. A photo of me doing what I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to do in the first place.
Now I know the history of Labor day and stand by it's significance to workers throughout the country, But, on a personal note this Labor day, I couldn't be happier or more grateful to be able to work. To Labor. To have the chance to make someone feel better through a song. Or, just be able to have a little bit of fun.
Don't get me wrong. I loved the beautiful getaway. But for me, it wouldn't mean a thing if I wasn't playing music. Oh and having a pretty girl by my side to accompany me and take pictures that inspire these posts ? I'd be insane to ask for more.
Have a great 3 day weekend!
