Everything has its season

The other day I watched this amazingly beautiful music video by my good friend, Sandra Turley entitled “Every Season.” It not only spoke to me musically, but also in a very deep and profoundly emotional way.

We are staying with my parents this weekend, in a one-room casita with two beds. We are happily squished and smashed in there, but even though it’s a little cramped, I found myself waking up this morning with overwhelming feelings of love for … Continue reading»

I love Jimmy Fallon. My husband and I watch the Tonight Show almost every night before we turn in and last night Jimmy did a fantastic cover of U2′s hit “Desire” with The Roots. “Bono hurt his arm in a cycling accident yesterday.
