Music Monday for 06.29.2020

Just a little bit late! Time got away from me yesterday (the time I would have normally been typing this post) because I exhausted myself working in the yard and pretty much passed out after dinner and a shower.

No worries, though. It's freebie week at Monday's Music Moves Me, and I'm keeping it short and sweet.

Music Monday for 06.08.2020 & Site Design Refresh for Summer

Hey, y'all!

It's time for another Music Monday, but first...how do you like my new design? I love the nautical colors, and have been waiting specifically for summer (although it's not officially summer for another twelve days) to use them. I also loved my old header font, but that's something I frequently change as well. I love it! I wish I had more ways to utilize all of the colors I chose, but prefer the simplicity of just using pops of color via the links.

Battle of the Bands and Music Monday Extravaganza for 06.01.2020

BUT FIRST, a couple of things: I worked on this post a while in advance, and certainly don't want to come across as insensitive to the pain no doubt most of us are feeling for George Floyd and his loved ones (and countless others I can't even begin listing here). We are in some really scary, difficult times, and I'll be honest here: I just don't have the words right now. I only have my feelings, which I am trying to process. I honestly don't even know if I'll write about it. It's one of those things where everything else seems trivial, but again...I just don't have the words right now.

BotB rResults & Music Monday for 02.10.2020

First off, the BotB results should have been posted on the 8th, but I forgot that that fell on a Saturday that I was out of town. And is't really even somewhat of a miracle that this even got posted at all. I stepped into the shower at about 10pm, after my four hour trip home, and promptly managed to get some of the fancy tea tree oil shampoo my sweet Mama gifted me into my eyes. I spoke in tongues. I saw undiscovered colors. My eyes have never felt so fresh or clean! Unfortunately, it didn't clear up my vision. And the shower happened after Ari lost his mind after being let out of his kennel.

Music Monday for 02.03.2020

Look at this; I'm jumping back in with both feet, and on a week with a pre-determined theme at Monday's Music Moves Me.

The theme for this week comes to us from Robin at Songbird's Crazy World: "In honor of Valentine's Day, we will have love songs. Songs about falling in love, songs about being in love, songs about missing the one you love, even songs about losing love."

The Twenties just roared in like…

wait...we are calling this new decade The Roaring Twenties, right? If so, I certainly approve. It's one of my favorite vintage eras for fashion, beauty, housewares, and architecture. It certainly ticks all the boxes, what with it's Dapper gentlemen (and high-stalin' gangsters!) in wingtip shoes, Flapper girls in their beaded dresses and turbans throwing back bathtub gin and dancing the night away, and ART DECO everything!

Music Monday for 12.23.2019

Here are a few Holiday tunes for our final Christmas Music Monday. I tried my best to pick versions that maybe everyone hasn't heard yet. I've included a few well-known songs as well as some originals. Hope you enjoy!
