    YOU GUYS. I celebrate my birthday at Live on The Green every year. This year, it so happens that City and Colour, who I love more than bacon, will be headlining. I saw City and Colour when they performed at the Ryman this year on Dallas Green’s birthday. I serenaded him “Happy Birthday” along with the crowd, and my birthday wish is for him to do the same for me. (A girl can dream, right?) That way, I can cry tears of joy and die happy from drowning in my own tears. :]
