I am so excited that Elizabeth Mitchell (our favoritest family singer ever!) has a new album out. But even more exciting is the fact that... WE GOT TO SEE HER IN CONCERT!
We had the most amazing time, and are totally smitten with the lovely Elizabeth and her husband Dan and daughter Storey. A family that tours and makes music together! What a dream! We saw them at this very cool gallery space (actually, it's called the Space Gallery!) in Portland, ME. It was small and intimate. The kids were attentive and the grownups sang along. Group singing, my favorite! It was such a beautiful experience, and we left with our hearts singing. Best of all, Clara got to meet Elizabeth and give her a card she had drawn for her. Elizabeth was so sweet and quickly found a card of hers on which to write a message back to Clara. It made Clara's November, I think!
Afterwards, we all enjoyed walking around Portland in the uncommonly warm November sun, and even snuck in a trip to Duck Fat for the best french fries in the history of everything.
A great day ended with dinner at the new home of some friends with their beautiful new baby girl. Of course, a family concert was in order, so we serenaded Baby H well into the evening. And then a long drive home... Lovely day...
