From the Field to a Dance Hall: Yeah that’s my family.

Whew where has time flown off to? Ha what a cliche! But really, it is extremely fitting for the last couple of weeks. I’m sure this is true for most of you as well. With the holiday, Monday, and it being the end of the month. I feel like it hasn’t quite passed me by but it’s trying to that’s for sure. Lots has happened since last weekend. I had yet another unbelievably-wonderful weekend at home. It started out with just the usual banter amongst us girls, which of course…

It’s Tuesday, Let’s Dance!

Sometimes you just hear a song and not only gets stuck in your head for the next 17 days, but you also can’t stop shimmying to the beat everywhere you go! Ok maybe that’s just me being strange, which in no way do I deny, but it seriously becomes a “problem” for me.

The Reason I Always Have Something to Look Forward To: Grandpa Denis

I am excited about this post, yet nervous all at the same time. “Why?” you may ask. Well all of the following is based on second-hand knowledge.

Blue Ain’t the Word for the Way I Feel

Another weekend is in the books for 2013. We sure are getting awfully close to some important holidays, aren’t we? This post is for Grandpa… and well any other person out there who enjoys and appreciates good, honest music. I would say specifically country music but the artist I am featuring is known for some great crossover tunes. A long time ago, Grandpa told me that Ray Price was his favorite singer. Naturally since then, he’s been one of mine too. Such an honest voice. His songs are magic to…

Making Mends.. Sorry Dad

Good morning Friday! You look so good. You really should come around quicker ever week, you know? But seriously. I am beyond excited that the week is over. My sister is coming to town and a great weekend is promised. Well, well, well. Back to making mends. It seems I have gravely upset my father. You see last Thursday when I posted my Top 7 Old Country Songs I thought long and hard on my picks. I tried to pick different songs so that I would have a great variety…
