Song in the Key of Life.

Music has become our new cable TV. It fills our home about 80% of our waking hours. Henry knows more Beatles songs then I knew when I was 20. He knows which songs belong to Michael Jackson. There's nothing more adorable than when he busts out some Benny and the Jetts. I truly do love music- as most people do. But I've never been much of a concert girl. For me, music has had just the same meaning whether I was listening to it from the 3rd row of the Ryman or from my jambox while I'm cooking dinner.

All that changed last Saturday night.

I can't even remember when I started liking Stevie Wonder. In my mind his music has always been around. My parents listened to him when they drove us around in their plymouth station wagon. And even when, in my teens and twenties, I listened to other questionable musical artists, Stevie never left my playlist.

Mr. Zuill knows exactly how much I love Stevie Wonder and for the last 6 years has had this on his radar. For the first time in 7 years Stevie Wonder would be touring- and stopping in Atlanta! So I got the amazing surprise of two tickets and a weekend date!

The concert was amazing. Stevie Wonder's beautiful voice filled the air as he celebrated and story-told with his music. I truly soaked every second of it in (hence only the handful of phone pictures). The concert was even more than I could have imagined- as was my weekend with Mr. Zuill! Thank you SO much Will!
