For the last seventeen years of my life, I have grown up looking at the same picture in a scrapbook. It's a picture of my dad and grandfather, and they ran the Peachtree Road Race together. For years and years, I would look at that picture and smile and say, "one day I'm gonna do that."
Well this past summer, I ran my very first 5k. It's a small stepping stone to the Peachtree that I am hoping to run next year.
This 5k was so important to me because it was a whole lot of, "let's check off the bucket list." Let me explain. So I've never been to a concert. I've never watched a braves game, and I've never ran any type of race. HORRIBLE, I know, I know.
BUT THIS DAY WAS SO COOL BECAUSE I DID ALL OF THOSE IN ONEEEEE DAY!!!!!!
FREAKING JAKE OWEN THOUGH
Like I said earlier, I have never been to a concert before this night. I am not a HUGE fan of Jake Owen, but he has a song called "Good Company" and I LOVE IT. It's my summer jam!!!!!
He was so entertaining to watch too. He was so comfortable on stage and he made it so much fun. 10/10 would go to another concert with him!
Every time I see the picture above I giggle because of the dude in front of me.
So this guy (I don't even know his name) went to the game/concert with his parents and it was the cutest thing ever. His friends were in the row in front of him, but he was just chillin' with his mama!
Half way through the show, he would keep turning around to my brother and I and he would take a picture with us & post it to Snapchat.
Long story short: we cheered to Jake Owen and we laughed and we simply just had a really good time. I love this dude even though I don't know his name. I hope he is having a good day.
OVERALL --- I LOVED THIS DAY.
It's definitely one of my favorite summer 2017 memories.
