The Avetts April 13, 2011

I saw the Avett Brothers live with the Mottram brothers and my soon to be sis-in-law over the weekend. Once I was able to let myself relax and get out of mommy mode I was really taken by the Bros and the music they were making on stage which included sounds from a banjo, guitar, cello, bass, piano and drums. They were great entertainers which made every song enjoyable whether I’d heard it before or not.  They didn’t end up playing my favorite song, but I won’t hold it against them.

‘If It’s the Beaches’ is my favorite Avett Bros song which is actually the first song that Miles ever listened to while we were in the hospital. Warning: if you’re feeling at all emotional/hormonal you might want to listen to it at a different time. I may have tearily asked Jamie to turn this song off during our first week home with Miles. I was most certainly not in my right mind, well as right as my mind gets anyways. I am happy to report that I just listened to this whole song without shedding one tear (I just made sure I didn’t listen too closely!).
