Tune-In Tuesday: Let It Be

Welcome back to another Tune-In Tuesday installment! 😀 Today I wanted to go back a bit in music history to visit with my favorite band of all time. The Beatles We each have that one song, or that one band, movie, TV show, or toy from our childhood that instantly plants a smile on our lips and warmth in our hearts. The Beatles are that band for me. Their music was the first I can recall ever hearing. They were […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Scotty Doesn’t Know

Welcome back to Tune-In Tuesday! This week I’m highlighting a song that always puts me a good mood. “Scotty Doesn’t Know” by Lustra, made famous by the movie Europtrip. 😀 No matter how bad your day is going, this song will never fail to make you smile because things could always be worse.

Tune-In Tuesday: Covers & Re-Makes (Feeling Good)

Tune-In Tuesday: What The Water Gave Me

This week’s song, from Florence + The Machines, is courtesy of New York Times Bestselling Author Deborah Harkness and her YouTube playlist for the heroine of her All Souls Trilogy, Diana Bishop. Many writers have a time in their lives when they’ve unintentionally walked away from writing. For some it’s school, for others it’s family, and for a few it’s simply the need to walk away and refill their creativity well. Ten years ago, I stopped writing due to the overwhelming workload at college. Then when […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Beautiful With You

Last week was a tough week. Between the Boston Marathon bombing and the explosion in Texas, it just didn’t seem as though things could get any worse. Ah, but they could … and they did. At least on my end. My friends were dealt with terrible news. Then as I tried to be there for them, I learned a harsh reality: people change and friends grow apart. Most times there’s nothing you can do. People reach for their dreams, take […]
