I was really happy with the way those photos turned out!
trying out some sheer stripes--like it or not?
my favorite slouchy hoodie has a debut on the blog... ;)

And as promised... I'm posting both videos today on a whim. I'll give a brief explanation as to why I love each song below.

This song has beautiful lyrics and the prettiest chords. That alone makes a good song. There isn't much to it. It's really easy to sing; there's nothing challenging in it, but I feel that the emotion behind it is real and it pulls me in... It's funny... I'm not much of a romantic when it comes to flowers and chocolates and surprises, but sit me down and blast a song that tugs on my heart, and I'll weep like a baby. Music makes me feel alive. Like I said, there isn't much to this song, but the quietness of it is what I find beautiful.

This song is a part of who I am in such a real way that I almost separate myself from it when I sing it. It takes a lot out of me to really sing this song, but I think I did a good job of it on this night... it's a shame I had to look like Anne of Green Gables, but I'm hoping you'll get distracted. I feel like this song makes a lot of sense to anyone who has ever had a broken heart, regardless if you have seen the musical or not--but I really recommend you do.

Thank you so much for listening: means the world to me!

Anyone notice my Tim Horton's mug? Can I make it anymore obvious that I am Canadian? Haha!
