We Are All With The Band

So there was too much going on in my brain to write another post about Simonpalooza, so I decided to vlog it.  And I talk a lot.  I'm sorry.

I quoted this song in the vlog.  It's one of my favorites.  Every time I hear it, I cry and think of the DOC.  I love you all!  We are ALL with the band!

There's one more video you HAVE to watch.  But go get some tissue first.

I'm serious.  I'll wait.


Don't say I didn't warn you.  You WILL cry!

If you're short on time, skip my vlog and watch this video that Sara put together.  Simon took some time to thank Cherise for all she's done.  What he had to say had us all crying.  A lot.  Watching the video had me balling again!

So get your tissues, and go watch the video!  Thank you Simon, for having the courage to share so openly and honestly with everyone.  I really admire you for that.  Thank you.


  1. You are describing much of what I felt from this weekend. It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime things that I'll never forget!

    Great vlog, Jess!

  2. Great vlog! Those song lyrics gave me the chills as you said them. They fit us perfectly!

    I love being with the band.

  3. Beautiful. Your vlog and the song. We are so blessed to have found the D-OC. It's a magical place.

  4. Very moving post Jess. Thank you.

    It was really an amazing experience wasn't it. Sigh...

  5. Great vlog and post, Jess. Thank you for saying what is in our hearts, and sharing it for the world to feel. This whole weekend was so inspirational, perspective-adding, life-changing. And it lives on.

  9. I can't be the only one thinking this. If you are showing the back of your t-shirt to the camera what are you wearing in place of the Simonpalooza t-shirt???
    Awesome VLOG. We will have to plan Jacquipalooza soon.
