The Avett Brothers

Sunday Night was spent at an outdoor venue, listening, dancing, and singing along to my most FAVORITE band.... The Avett Brothers. Their music, their lyrics, their energy... just gets me. And I love love love all of it. This is B & my second time seeing them (actually at the same place) and it didn't disappoint. I would see them over and over again!

And for your viewing pleasure, one of my favorite songs from them, and my terrible video skills! ha!

Seinfeld is definitely a show that reminds me of my Dad.  Even well after the show ended my Dad would still watch all the re-runs that came on.   One of the episodes that really sticks out and reminds me of him, is the one where Kramer was in the fictional Woody Allen movie, his line was "These pretzels are making me thirsty!" and he kept saying it in many different ways through out the episode.   I don't remember why or how, but this is something that my dad and I continued to carry out at random times.  And then came the gag gifts at Christmas and other occasions, a bag of pretzels here and there etc.  This past Christmas when we found out my dad was sick, I already had ordered him a custom coffee mug from an Etsy shop Lenny Mud , that had a pretzel image on it, with the saying "these pretzels are making me thirsty". My dad loved it, and I was happy to give him something with such meaning to the both of us, and to use while he drank his favorite cup of Kamodo from Starbucks.

Since his passing, I've been trying to surround myself with things that remind me of him, and the memories we've shared. Pictures are definitely great reminders but other things that can spark a memory are nice as well. As soon as I saw this Seinfood print on A Cup of Jo , I knew I had to get it to place on our gallery wall.
To always be a constant reminder, of how something so simple, made so many wonderful memories and something that was between just us.

Crabby love

 A  couple of weekends ago we went out for Crabs ( the good kind) with a close couple of ours. To me, there really is nothing that says summer more then sitting outside on a deck on the water having some cold ones, and picking crabs. Some might think it's tedious for what little meat you get ( because honestly it doesn't fill you up) BUT for me it's about the socializing...and having fun and just being. 
Some nice large ones!!

Probably a bad decision on the jager bombs...

Amy & Tom

Me and my love!
