It Feels Like the Perfect Night

3.25.2013

Last October, Taylor Swift announced she would be starting her Red Tour this spring and ever since then, I've been counting down the days until she'd arrive in Charlotte on March 22.

I wish I was exaggerating when I say I literally searched for what I considered the "perfect" outfit for that night or that I made bets with myself on what her opening song would be.  However, I'm not.  When I get excited about something, it's all over. It's all I can think about (to a degree), but then because I'm me, I tried to slow the days down leading up to this past Friday because I knew once it was over, I'd be a little sad.  It's kinda like Christmas; you build it up and you look forward to it, and then before you can name a song that doesn't have to do with a broken heart, it's over.

Andrew was supposed to go with me, but then I lovingly passed my cold from last week to him, so my friend, T, was my date.  I think she was more than a little apprehensive, but she was excited for a reason to wear her cowboy boots!


Before the concert even started, I was told no less than five times that I "look just like her!"  For the record I disagree, but I think she's pretty, so I take it as a compliment.

Ed Sheeran opened up the show and he was incredible! I love his voice and watching him play guitar is somewhat mesmerizing.  Also, his British accent is pretty stinkin' adorable!



After he finished and the lights came back on for a few minutes, I obviously had to get a picture of these four sitting in front of us.


They were having the best time and they were sweet enough to give each of us a glow bracelet! I still have mine, but it's definitely no longer glowing.

Then the lights went down once more and deafening screams erupted throughout the arena.




A little more than halfway through this amazing show that I was enjoying from our amazing seats, one of my friends got a text that had the potential to make this night even better.  This particular friend knew someone that was on the floor, and they let her know he and his group were leaving and wanted to know if she would want his four tickets.

Um. Yes, please!!

I honestly felt like I was in a dream when we got down to there because it just didn't seem like this could be my life.


Once I regained my senses somewhat gained composure realized I could hold the camera while still losing my mind, I managed to get some great shots of the last few songs.




It was an incredible show I would have loved just as much if I would've been in the last seat of the last row.


It's funny how much I love Taylor Swift now because I used to hate her music and didn't really care to know anything about her.  I'm not sure where the turning point was, but I don't think I've ever changed my tune about someone as much as I have about her.  I think she's an incredible song writer and I love her honesty with herself and with the world.

So despite not being a teenage girl, or 22, I had a pretty magical time!
