I Take Comfort in The Sound...

{Note to Self}

I have been introduced to Pedro the Lion once before, a long time ago, around 2004. (That seems like forever). I was recently re-introduced to Pedro by Tommy--he was kind enough to include a couple of his songs on a mix he made for me.

When I first listened to Pedro, I don't think I was ready for him. I wasn't patient enough for his slow rythmic tracks. However, I think my ears have matured as of late. Every time I hear a new song of his, it's like I've heard it before, but not like all of his songs are the same. This explanation is troubling because everything is all so new, yet so familiar. But maybe they are familiar because Tommy has played them for me, in the background, while we were driving around...

So this entry isn't so much about Pedro as much it is about Tommy--and his music. I love how he is always 10,000 steps ahead of me when it comes to music, but he never gives up on me!! I do have a genuine love for music (thanks Mom!) but as I've mentioned music has become so much better to me knowing that Tommy has listened to it first, experienced it first, etc.

Ps. I regret not going to the Bon Iver show with you. Some day soon...
Pps. You could pass for Pedro if you dust off your green tennis shoes!

Sweet Slumber

After church today Tommy and I went to visit my Grandma Doris. It was a fun visit, but once we returned home I knew my first order of business was to get some rest while Tommy studied. I'm usually not a Sunday napper, but I have not been sleeping very well lately, so I took full advantage today! Turns out Tommy needed some shut-eye as I made a deal with him. "Let's take an hour nap and then you can study and I can organize our paperwork!" "Great idea!" TWO AND A HALF HOURS LATER--we finally woke up! Oops!

Happy (early) Valentines Day! & HAPPY BIRTHDAY ARIZONA!

Happy Valentines Day Tommy!

"Happy Birthday, Arizona.! She's 98 today and joined the Union on February 14, 1912"
Tommy just taught me that Arizona is also known as The Valentine State...I gave him a hard time until he told me that he learned it in his fourth grade class. I guess that sounds pretty legit...

On the Eleventh, Twelfth & Thirteenth Day of Valentines...

...well you can bet my boots...since you don't have any!

On the Fourth Day of Valentines...AND Taylor Michelle's 9th Birthday!

Oh Stevie Wonder...



It was this little girl that caused our little road trip to NM...where I fell in love with Tommy! Thanks for turning eight Taylor! Taylor is my first niece. I loved her so much and always wanted to hold her...but she never ever wanted me to! Now we are thick as thieves. Taylor loves to read and is incredibly smart. She wants to learn how to quilt and sew -- just like Grandma Judy. She also begged Grandma to teach her how to knit! I wish I was just as ambitious. She keeps her room nice & neat and is a Daddy's Girl in every sense of the word. Happy Birthday Taylor! 

Love {she + him}
