Some Highlights ● by Jess

I'm long overdue on catching up with photos on this blog, but as far a few recent highlights, we recently attended an Eric Whitaker (a composer) concert. I was not familiar with Eric Whitaker prior to meeting Jon, but my husband is definitely an... enthusiast? That might be putting it too mildly.

Once when Jon was walking home from church, he spotted a many with shoulder length blond hair walking with his wife and child. Immediately Jon recognised him as Eric Whitaker, legendary composer, and ran after him, yelling "Eric! ERIC! HI!"

Somehow it was indeed the man himself and Jon got to shake his hand and introduce himself. It pretty much made Jon's whole month, though to be honest I'm still trying to figure out how Jon was able to "recognise" a composer on the street.

Anyway, Jon got tickets to his concert and it was absolutely beautiful, funny and entertaining.

Classical music makes Jon ravenous for chocolate. 

We also spent a day at the British museum. Unfortunatly, we ended up going on one of the hottest days of the summer and on a Saturday. But, even with all the tourists and the muggy heat it was still amazing!
