Hello, Everyone!

So...I've decided it's time to do something new and scary. I'm going to share some lyrics that I've written.

Look at me, being all brave and stuff!

These are just sort of a work in progress, but I am slowly getting the melody together. (With a little help from Treskie ;)

Anyway, let me know what y'all think, okay? 

You Cry
It breaks me.

I'll Try
To help you through,

It's not the End,
I promise.

There is a future 
For you.

And it's hard to remember
When life was better,
And days were not covered in shadows.

This battles been hard,
We've all got some scars. 
And healing takes time,
Just Remember...

This darkness will go away,
It always does,
And I'm not 
Leaving you alone.
Trust a little while longer,
Stay strong,
This darkness cannot last forever.
Just hold on...

That's the first part anyway. Feel free to let me know what you think. If you like this, maybe I'll go ahead and start posting my lyrics more often. 

Take care and God Bless!

It's a better place...

Hello Everyone!!

I'll tell the world, I'll sing a song
It's a better place since you came along
Since you came along

So, lately I've been lucky enough to have a whole bushel of new music to get all emotional over. This is a big deal for lil' ol' musically addicted me.
Sometimes I go for months without finding any new music, but over this last year I've been finding good music all over the much so, I almost can't keep up with it. (Here meaning, I don't have enough time to learn all the songs backward and forward. Usually if I love a song I want to be able to sing along to it...)

Your touch is sunlight through the trees
Your kisses are the ocean breeze
Everything's alright when you're with me

Anyway, there's something really sweet about this song. It's just simple and catchy and makes me feel really content.

And I hold my favorite thing
I hold the love that you bring
But it feels like I've opened my eyes again
And the colors are golden and bright again
There's a song in my heart, I feel like I belong
It's a better place since you came along
It's a better place since you came along

I love the line that 'the colors are golden and bright again.' It reminds me of evening walks when the world turns soft and gold.

I see the whole world in your eyes
It's like I've known you all my life
We just feel so right
So I pour my heart into your hands
It's like you really understand
You love the way I am

And that's all for now! What did you think of the song? Love it, hate it? Come on, talk music with me!

God Bless,

Lifey Update:

Hello Peoples!

Let's just skip the part where I grovel about not blogging and try to explain why I haven't. That is getting old, is it not? ;)
I can sum up in three words: Life. Get's. Busy. 

Moving on quickly!

Let's just head in with a life dump, shall I?

It's been a really fast year so far. Like, here we are at July (What the freak?) and I feel like I can't catch up with myself!

February brought Disneyland in all it's wild, hectic glory.

March was just March. Though there were a few lovely walks in March. Complete with gorgeous, swampy meadows.

April brought my brother's wedding and a visit with my sister and her freakin' adorable family.

(The only picture I took on my phone! #woops)

(She just had her baby 2 weeks before they came out!)

May brought a lot of work, (Mother's day at a flower shop...) and more meadow-y walks.

(Because I will never not love dandelion fuzz.
 It's basically magic on a stem. :)

Then June hit with some days at the beach, wedding craziness at the shop and finally a visit to see my friend.

My best friend and her husband had their first baby this June and I'm the Godmother. It was a blast going out for a week and visiting, holding that baby as much as I possibly could, and just being there.

She sleeps like a tiny boxer and it makes me so happy.

And she's got so much hair!

Paint night. (I mad dis. #beautyandthebeast)

We did some shooting. 

And took a beautiful evening walk.

Everything was so golden. 

And this series of pictures are my favs. :)

That brings us to the 4th of July, which was very pleasant and involved a trip to Barns and Noble, Hobby Lobby, and a very nice BBQ.

Other than that, I've been juggling work, hobbies and other trivial things like doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom and watching fun TV shows. 

Right now I feel like I have so many things I want to do and just don't have time for. I'm plugging away at trying to learn guitar, and though it's coming along, it's definitely tedious.
I want to write and draw and make music. I want to be outside and just sit by the water and listen to the waves and the birds. I want to do more self defense things and go on hikes. I want to cook new dishes and try my hand and making pasta from scratch. I want to learn more about guns and shooting. I want to learn about cars: How they work and how to fix/understand mine.

I want to spend more time with God and less time worrying about things I don't really have any control over. 

This year I'm really antsy to have my own home, to create a place that's mine, to have a family and start that part of my life. And that's something that I have to leave to God and His timing.
And it's really hard.

Anyway, I did manage to upload another song to my channel. #ItShouldHaveBeenInJune. 
I was all set to post it in June and time got away from me and I failed on that one! Lol. But it's finally up and I'm even hoping to have another video up this month as well.

Let me know what you think and maybe leave me some suggestions if you have any songs you think I should sing. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

God Bless,
