Jumping off of my post earlier today, let’s chat about when my obsession started with Red Nose Day. Seven years ago, I spent three of the best months of my life living in London and travelling a bit around Western Europe. While I was there, I experienced UK Red Nose Day first-hand and saw the fantastic impact it had in that it brought the entire nation together for a great cause!
While there, another memorable experience I had the pleasure of experiencing was potentially, also, one of the most American – seeing Bruce Springsteen in concert in Emirates Stadium (where Arsenal plays as a part of the Premier League.)
I’ve rarely been one to say no when I see a once in a lifetime experience in front of me. And this was one that I debated about for a while, but I still would say that I don’t regret a minute of it! Potentially the most fun was meeting the British folks that were madly in love with Bruce – they were freaking out when a friend I was with told them she was from New Jersey! I often feel as though the Brits bring some of the best music around (see: Beatles, Coldplay, The Kooks), but it was so great for me to see that the admiration goes both ways!
