Heart Sing

A couple of weeks ago I took Surfer Boy on a secret date to see Michelle Shocked at the East Brunswick Club.  Michelle is the first artist we ever saw together in the first couple of months of our relationship and she is the soundtrack to those early years.  15 odd years later and I bought tickets but refused to tell him where we were going until we were lined up outside the venue.  It was a huge success and a truely memorable gig as all Michelle's gigs are.

Fast forward a week or two and following Michelle's advice, I added her as a friend on Facebook and yesterday I actually received a reply!!!

Michelle Shocked

Hi Jenny

I share the privilege. Thank you for your kind words of encouragement! Love, Michelle

How fabulous is that.  I can't tell you how it made my day.  She is a music industry icon and I'm so thrilled she took the time to write to me.
