a perfect valentine

last night mike and i went on the perfect valentine date. the fact that we got a baby sitter to come over at 4:30 so we could get to dinner was a great start. we went to the roof restaurant - on the top floor of the joseph smith memorial building. it was a fabulous meal. i love good food. then up to kingsbury hall for the concert of all concerts. romantic piano concerts, that is. i am a huge fan of piano music. and jim brickman is my absolute favorite when it comes to instrumental piano music. he is amazing. somehow, through a great friend, we scored incredible seats -- 3rd row. right down front. smack dab in the middle. i mean, we were probably 25 feet from the piano. so close i could see that jim had a small thread on the leg of his pants, the fiddle player had piping on the pockets of his jacket and the vocalist, anne, had amazing beading on her gowns. as mike says, we were close enough to see them sweat. literally. it was perfect. we sat and listened to the most amazing music. such talent. it was a perfect evening away. a perfect place to spend time with my valentine. i love you, mike.
