Coming up Berries

It's pretty sad to admit this, but as a native Floridian I had never been to the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City. All that changed when I saw that Alabama would be in concert opening night. Festival attire, in the winter at least, should always include plaid, jeans and boots.
Festival food is always a main reason to attend, but the chocolate covered, jumbo strawberries on a stick were by far the best thing EVER!
Just as we were getting into Plant City, we stopped by Fringe Boutique, so I could purchase one of the limited edition Bourbon & Boweties strawberry bangles. I love that the back of each strawberry is engraved with "Plant City 2015". It's such a special way to mark such a special night with my mom.
My mom has been an Alabama fan forever, and their music has always been a huge part of my life. I know words to songs I didn't even know I knew, we've listened to them on ten hour drives to our previous house in western North Carolina growing up, and there's home video of me singing songs from my car-seat as a toddler.
My favorite story, however, is the one where I was about four years old, we were at an Alabama concert and my mom turned to look at me. I was fast asleep in my chair, mid-concert with my legs indian style. I told her I owed her a ticket, so I treated her to this concert—almost 20 years later.
