Our House the Concert Hall

How do you fit forty people into a living room that seats seven? Like this:
Patrick and Erin, our friends from Nashville came to town and performed at our house Monday night. It was an honor to have talent like theirs under our roof. In 1996 Patrick's band won a Youtube Underground contest for best song. Since then his music has only gotten better. It would be worth your while to check out Patrick's Facebook page and listen to a few of his original songs. After that knocks your socks off, you can see some of the most beautiful artwork ever on Erin's Web site. You can support them by purchasing a CD or, if you can afford it, one of Erin's paintings. I'm convinced that one day it will be like having a Van Gogh hanging over your fireplace.
We gave our grill a workout and enjoyed some of this Florida summer in the back yard.
Then our kids finished up the evening with some boy-girl arm wrestling.
Sometimes we forget that we've only been here a little over a year. The community that regularly meets in our living room feels like it's existed forever.
