It’s hard to believe that a year ago I had a normal conversation with my Nana for the last time. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like she’s really gone; instead it feels like I just haven’t seen/talk to her in a long time. It’s just weird… especially since I went to Arco Arena last night for Star Wars in Concert, and the last time I was there I took Nana to see Andre Rieu.
So, sad thoughts aside, Star Wars in Concert was one of the most awesome experiences ever since meeting George Lucas! Not only am I a huge Star Wars fan, but I ADORE the music so combining the two was just beyond awesome! I took a ton of photos and basically recorded all but two numbers.
So that was pretty much the coolest thing ever! Pics and videos to follow! #starwarsinconcert

A lot of people dressed up, mainly little kids and boy did they look adorable! I snapped a photo of a group of kids dressed up, and one kid was supposed to be R2-D2 where he used a bicycle helmet for part of his costume. Pretty much all the kids brought toy lightsabers and during intermission a bunch of them had a phat lightsaber duel!
The coolest part of the concert was when Anthony Daniels came out to narrated the whole thing. At one point someone cried out, “C3PO I LOVE YOU!” and it was hilarious to watch Anthony trying not to break character. I loved being in an arena full of fellow Star Wars lovers! ♥
Overall I had a great time, I just wish I had better seats. Hopefully if they do something like this again next year I can save up for the good seats!
