October holds a great deal for me. I'm focusing on that month with fervor right now.

The one thing in particular that's holding my attention is the first weekend in October. I'm heading to Raleigh to see U2. They were my first concert ever. I was in 7th grade. I went with a girl from my middle school and my Dad. He drove us there and back to the Meadowlands in Jersey. He paid for the tickets. He sucked up the pot-laden air. And never made a complaint.

I've seen them since then, but this time I'm going with a dear friend from high school - someone who found me 20 years after the fact. I had no idea she'd been searching for me. I'm just freaking grateful for Facebook because that's how my Siouxie found me! Love you, woman!

And Lara is now coming along as well! She just paid for her ticket and will be flying down. We're having a girlie weekend of amazing escapades.

I seriously don't think there are many people in the world who are blessed with the kind of friends I have.

Even if you aren't Siouxie or Lara, know that I appreciate your words, smiles, support, and laughter. Most importantly, I value what you offer to the sisterhood we share!

Good friends are hard to find - that's for damn sure. Have a great time at the concert! We're seeing them when they swing by our neck of the woods at the end of October. :)

I can tell you which of the two times that I'm seeing them that I'm most excited about. I can't believe we're meeting after SOOO many years. Finally!

I trust you two are gonna show me the RIGHT way to experience a concert! LOL
