A Night to Remember

For the last year, I’ve had this secret goal to sing at an open mic. night, but wasn’t sure if I’d ever be ready or brave enough. Well, Last week was Valentines Day, my Daughter’s birthday and my birthday. On Valentine’s day, my computer crashed. My husband and I went to a concert that night and I accidentally left my phone at the concert hall.

We went back to get it the next night, which happened to be my birthday and which also happened to be open mic. night. I brought my guitar, just in case I got brave enough to get up and sing—and I did! I sang a song I wrote for my husband for Valentine’s day last year. As we walked back to our car, we noticed it wasn’t there. It had been towed. This is one Valentine’s/Birthday I’ll always remember.

About alicebeesley

Hi, I'm married and have three kids and a dog—she's a shnoodle named Kizzy. I enjoy playing the guitar and writing songs. I've published some poetry in magazines such as Avocet, a literary journal and Mylight, an online children's magazine. I have a bachelor's degree in writing from Brigham Young University. In the evenings I teach English as a second language. For fun I like to hike, bike, camp, and cross country ski. One of my favorite things to do is read a good book in bed and eat sugar-free chocolate.
